All Too Hard Wins Trial Ahead of 2013 All Aged Stakes

Soon-to-be stallion All Too Hard won a trial at Randwick this morning ahead of next weekend’s Group 1 2013 All Aged Stakes (1400m) at Randwick.

The All Aged will be the glamour colt’s final start on home soil before departing to the UK to contest the 2013 Queen Anne Stakes (1600m) at Royal Ascot.

In this morning’s 1050m trial All Too Hard settled towards the back of a six-horse group before finding the line through the centre of the field to win from Academus and Your Song.

It was a necessary tune up for the three-year-old who hasn’t raced since claiming a Group 1 double in February in the Futurity Stakes and the CF Orr Stakes.

It has been confirmed the All Aged will be the triple Group 1 winner’s final start in Australia, with the big galloper due to stand at Vinery Stud in the 2013 breeding season for a fee of $66,000.

He may have dominated his two starts this year but All Too Hard is expected to face far tougher opposition next weekend.

Still with a point to prove in Sydney, the multi-million dollar horse will take on the likes of More Joyous, Rain Affair and Rangirangdoo.

There is the slightest chance there could be a rematch with Pierro who will start a short-priced favourite in the Doncaster Mile this weekend.

Retirement also looms for the Gai Waterhouse-trained star who had his undefeated record broken by All Too Hard in the Caulfield Guineas last year.

All Too Hard also beat Pierro when the pair finished second and third respectively in the Cox Plate.

With one win from five starts in Sydney, question marks remain over All Too Hard’s ability to race in the clockwise direction while Pierro is unbeaten in his home city.
