Blue Diamond Stakes 2012 All Too Hard for Black Caviar’s Brother

Despite being among the 2012 Blue Diamond Stakes third declarations taken earlier this week, All Too Hard – a half-brother to Australia’s undefeated turf queen Black Caviar– is unlikely to contest the $1 million juvenile’s feature at the end of the month.

The Melbourne Racing Club took 64 third declarations for the $1 million Group 1 Patinack Farm Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) this week, the race to run at Caulfield on Saturday February 25.

Among them was Casino Prince two-year-old out of Black Caviar’s dam Helsinge, All Too Hard, purchased for a hefty $1,025,000 at last year’s Sydney Easter Yearling Sales.

The unraced youngster was paid up for by trainer John Hawkes who secured the colt in an aggressive bidding war against Black Caviar’s trainer Peter Moody who represented the champion mare’s owners.

Although pleased with their progress Hawkes said All Too Hard was unlikely to be ready for the tough 2012 Blue Diamond Stakes test in time.

“He’s been paid up for the Diamond, but I think we will run out of time getting him to the race,” Hawkes said.

“It’s a bit quick at this stage to make a race like the Blue Diamond but, having said that, he’s a nice horse on the way up.

“While he’s not far away from a barrier trial I think time will beat us when it comes to the Diamond.”

Still, stranger things have happened in the world of racing and punters that can’t find odds longer than $1.05 on Black Caviar this autumn may just be tempted to take the juicy all-in price offered by Luxbet in their Blue Diamond Stakes odds for her half-sibling.

In the latest Blue Diamond Stakes markets impressive Inglis Debutants Stakes winner Jimando, who runs in the $100,000 Listed Emirates Airlines Stakes (1100m) at Caulfield this Saturday, is the clear $5 favourite.

At the other end of the markets punters can find All Too Hard who is rated a $51 chance through Luxbet.

When they do debut race fans can expect a smart start to their career being the third foal out of Helsinge.

Her first needs no introduction, while her other Moshe is a full-brother to Black Caviar, the Bel Esprit four-year-old having won their opening three career starts before injuring themselves when sixth to Curtana at Caulfield on April 30 last year.

To cover all bases, head to Luxbet now and chuck a sneaky dollar on All Too Hard in the Blue Diamond markets.
