2013 All Aged Stakes Awaits Fit All Too Hard

Glamour colt All Too Hard is poised to record a third consecutive Group 1 win when he contests the Group 1 2013 All Aged Stakes (1400m) at Randwick on Saturday.

The three-year-old hasn’t been seen since February after a minor illness put a speed bump in his campaign but was flying before being ruled out of the Australian Guineas.

The half-brother to Black Caviar beat the older horses to win the CF Orr Stakes and the Futurity Stakes and trainer John Hawkes is confident he can pick up where he left off.

“It’s good to see him back. He had that hiccup, but he seems good,” Hawkes told TVN.

“He came through the trial well, he’s back on track.”

All Too Hard won a trial at Randwick on Friday ahead of the All Aged Stakes which will be his final start on Australian soil.

After this weekend he will head to the UK to contest the Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot in June before returning to stand at Vinery Stud in New South Wales.

All Too Hard will stand for a fee of $66,000 in his first season.

But before that he faces a tough ask on the track, with the All Aged Stakes set to attract a strong field.

Expected among the entries are glamour mare More Joyous, grand sprinter Hay List and Joe Pride’s Rain Affair.

The injury-plagued Hay List showed promising signs in a track gallop on Sunday and will be scoped on Tuesday to hopefully give him the all clear.

“He is more alert now than he was before the TJ, we’ve still got a few bridges to cross, soundness wise he is pleasing us, there is no issue there, it is just his breathing that is letting us down slightly,” trainer John McNair said.

Hay List won the All Aged in 2011 but was beaten 19 lengths when 10th to Black Caviar in the TJ Smith on April 13.
