“All Too Hard will run in the Golden Rose for sure and head to Melbourne after that”   Leave a comment

All Too Hard returns

Patinack FarmDate: 10 Aug 2012

All Too Hard completed a trial at Rosehill last week in satisfactory fashion, giving off all the right signs for the season ahead.

Allowed to track the runners at the back of the field for the first part of the 900m heat, the colt settled well before jockey Rod Quinn showed the Casino Prince three-year-old a bit of daylight in the straight. He then pulled himself right through the field to finish alongside Slipper runner-up Snitzerland when they hit the line, proving his fitness is spot on.

Co-trainer John Hawkes says “he will run in the Golden Rose for sure and head to Melbourne after that, at this point in time”. His first assignment this prep is likely to be at Rosehill next weekend in the G3 San Domenico Stakes (1100m).

There is bound to be much excitement for Black Caviar’s half-brother when he returns to the race track, especially as the great mare is almost certain to be rested during the Spring. The colt has big hoofs to fill, but he looks bigger, stronger and more grown up, so who would bet against him emulating his sister?
