Whobegotyou (19 August 2005 - 12 September 2012) was an Australian-bred Thoroughbred racehorse. The horse won nine races, including the Group One (G1) Caulfield Guineas and Yalumba Stakes for $3,115,450 in prize money.
He was a chestnut gelding that was foaled on 19 August 2005 and was bred by Lockyer Thoroughbreds. Whobegotyou was by the outstanding racehorse and sire, Street Cry (IRE), who won the Dubai World Cup and is the sire of winners of more than $51 million including, Shocking, Street Sense and Zenyatta. His dam, Temple of Peace was by Carnegie, who won the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe and is the dam of winners of more than $50 million. She was imported into Australia in 2002 and is the dam of three named other horses, by different sires, which have not started in any black type races. Whobegotyou is inbred to Mr. Prospector in the third and fourth generation (3m x 4f) and twice to Riverman in the fourth generation (4m x 4f) of his pedigree.
Whobegotyou was passed in at the Inglis Classic yearling sale during February 2007 in Sydney and was later sold for $19,500 to Laurence E. Eales of Victoria. He possessed a good temperament, but was soon becoming heavy and starting to develop a crest. It was then decided to geld him before sending him to Mark Kavanagh, for training.
Michael Rodd rode Whobegotyou in all of his wins except for two.
