2013 Australian Guineas Possibility After Futurity for All Too Hard

Team Hawkes have warned trainers of three-year-olds that All Too Hard could still run in Saturday week’s Group 1 2013 Australian Guineas (1600m) despite contesting the Group 1 2013 Futurity Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield this Saturday.

The star half-brother to Black Caviar has established an awesome reputation of his own and would start a short-priced favourite should he make it to the Guineas start line.

“All things going well he will run in the Futurity on Saturday and then the Australian Guineas,” Co-trainer Wayne Hawkes said.

The glamour colt will start as a deserving favourite in the Futurity Stakes after a strong first-up win in the Group 1 CF Orr Stakes at Caulfield on February 9.

The win came on the back of an outstanding spring campaign where he won the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas and finished second in the Cox Plate.

The lucrative stallion prospect is one of 14 horses entered for the Futurity Stakes.

Included in nominations is Lloyd Williams-owned import Green Moon who was last seen winning the Melbourne Cup in November.

New Zealand veteran King Mufhasa returns to defend his Futurity Stakes title after beating 2011 Cox Plate winner Pinker Pinker to take top honours last year.

But the 20-time winner from 57 starts will have to bounce back from his first-up effort where he finished 1 1/2 lengths behind All Too Hard when fifth in the CF Orr Stakes.

Nominations are littered with Group 1 winners with 2011 Mackinnon Stakes winner Glass Harmonium and Peter Moody’s 2011 Australasian Oaks champion Lights Of Heaven also entered to kick off their autumn campaigns.

The Futurity forms part of a bumper card at Caulfield on Saturday that also features the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes and the Group 1 Oakleigh Plate.
