Epaulette Will Take on All Too Hard in 2013 All Aged Stakes

After running second to Black Caviar in Saturday’s TJ Smith, Darley colt Epaulette will be given the chance to go one better against the great mare’s little brother in Saturday week’s Group 1 2013 All Aged Stakes (1400m) at Randwick.

Head Darley trainer Peter Snowden was ecstatic with the first-up run from the Golden Rose winner and said he has come through the race with flying colours.

”He pulled up really well and he’ll be heading to the All Aged now,” Snowden said.

Saturday’s second to the world’s best horse was Epaulette’s first start since running third behind All Too Hard and Pierro in October’s Caulfield Guineas.

A minor problem delayed the start of his autumn campaign but he is clearly at the top of his game now.

In his TJ Smith second the son of Commands beat home a host of top-line sprinters including Bel Sprinter, Sea Siren, Decision Time and Rain Affair.

Epaulette has won four of nine starts, with his biggest victory coming in the $1 million Golden Rose at Rosehill in September.

Meanwhile, All Too Hard arrived safely in Sydney on Monday ahead of the All Aged which will be his first start since winning the Futurity Stakes on February 23.

All Too Hard is set to start as favourite in the All Aged despite a question mark still hovering over his ability to perform in Sydney.

A triple Group 1 winner and a Cox Plate runner-up in Melbourne, All Too Hard has recorded just one victory from five starts in the harbour city.

The half-brother to Black Caviar will trial on Friday to tune up ahead of his attempt to claim a third straight Group 1 victory.
