No Immediate Retirement for All Too Hard – 2013 All Aged Stakes Next

Talk of retirement for superstar colt All Too Hard has been quashed with the three-year-old to be aimed at the Group 1 2013 All Aged Stakes (1400m) at Randwick on April 27.

There had been speculation the half-brother to Black Caviar would be sent to stud but co-trainer John Hawkes put an end to that talk, at least for the time being.

“He’s got plenty of time to be right [for the All Aged Stakes] and at this stage that’s where he’s heading,” Hawkes told New Limited.

The glamour colt is one of the shining lights of Australian racing at the moment, having won six of 11 starts including three times at Group 1 level.

His pedigree combined with his success on the track, that includes a Cox Plate second, make him Australia’s most valuable stallion prospect.

Connections have previously indicated he could attempt to further boost his value at stud by embarking on an overseas campaign to Royal Ascot in June.

A start in the All Aged Stakes sets up a potential showdown with Australia’s biggest names of the turf.

Possible starters include More Joyous, Pierro, Hay List and of course the biggest name of all. Black Caviar.

Connections of Black Caviar have remained tight-lipped about an All Aged Stakes start but it is not beyond the realms of possibility.

The six-year-old is at the top of her game, having broken the Flemington 1000m record in the Lightning Stakes last month and likely to start as the shortest favourite in a Group 1 race in 50 years at Moonee Valley in the William Reid Stakes on Friday night.

Black Caviar is currently $1.04 with for Friday night’s hit-out. is offering sensational odds on all the autumn carnival action so now is the time to sign up.

Now is the time to join the Australian-owned bookie as they are currently offering a sensational $400 bonus bet offer!
