All Too Hard on track for 2013 All Aged Stakes

Superstar colt All Too Hard gave an early indication he will be right to contest the Group 1 2013 All Aged Stakes (1400m) later this month by winning a jump-out at Flemington this morning.

The three-year-old hasn’t been seen on raceday since February 23 after as an elevated temperature ruled him out of the  Australian Guineas in March.

Co-trainer Wayne Hawkes told Sky Sports Radio the signs were positive heading towards the All Aged Stakes at Randwick on April 27.

“We’re still three weeks from the race. We’ve got a bit more to go yet but we’re on track,” Hawkes said.

“He had a nice blow as you would expect.”

Hawkes said the enforced break may have been a blessing in disguise as it means that if connections wish to head to Royal Ascot, All Too Hard will go there at the top of his game.

“England is not going to be an afterthought. He’s not going to be going as a tired, flat horse,” he said.

Before being ruled out of the Australian Guineas, the half-brother to Black Caviar was in imposing form.

He beat the older horses to claim the Group 1 CF Orr Stakes before blowing them away when winning the Group 1 Futurity Stakes by 3 1/2 lengths.

Australia’s most valuable stallion prospect, All Too Hard has won six of 11 career starts and collected more than $2 million in prizemoney.

Punters are hoping to see a mouthwatering rematch between All Too Hard and top Sydney colt Pierro but it appears unlikely as Pierro would have to back up seven days after running in the Doncaster Mile.
