Last weekend All Too Hard’s famous half-sister Black Caviar raced into the history books once again as the first triple Lightning Stakes winner and this Saturday it is the colt’s turn.

Winner of the Caulfield Guineas during the spring, All Too Hard returned on February 9 at Caulfield with a nice win in the Group 1 CF Orr Stakes (1400m).

They back-up this weekend over the same track and distance currently one of 12 entries taken for the $500,000 Group 1 Futurity Stakes (1400m) with nominations extended until 10:00am (AEST) on Tuesday.

Connections of the spruik three-year-old have recently announced that the Futurity Stakes will be used as a lead-up into the $600,000 Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m) back at the track Saturday week (March 2) All Too Hard currently the $2.10 shortie in the futures Australian Guineas odds.

While they are sure to jump favourite in the Futurity as well it will be no easy task with a very exciting line-up of potential rivals including the reigning Melbourne Cup winner Green Moon who will be ridden by ace Hong Kong-based hoop Brett Prebble.

While the 1400m will be too short for Robert Hickmott’s Montjeu stallion, Green Moon not having won over less than a mile, there is still plenty of class here as they were last seen winning the world’s richest handicap race.

Also in the mix is 10-time Group 1 champion King Mufhasa from New Zealand who is the defending Futurity Stakes winner.

The veteran Pentire eight-year-old is looking to bounce back after their first-up fifth to All Too Hard in the CF Orr Stakes.

Other headline Futurity Stakes nominations include Zabeel six-year-old Maluckyday, the Michael Moroney-trained Glass Harmonium, and Peter Moody’s Group 1 winning mare Lights Of Heaven.
