All Too Hard firing up

Within the first few days of the new racing season, All Too Hard is surely making his presence felt, siring a double when Super Hard won at Sandown, and All Come True made it a double for the week, scoring at Seymour.

Both fillies are trained at Caulfield by Robert Smerdon, All Too Hard’s first crop of foals have produced 11 winners, with two being stakes winners, Smerdon is being patient, he is taking his time, thus is now reaping the rewards

In fact it was the second win for Super Hard; he saluted at Sandown after having won previously at Pakenham.

Patience may be the formula for All Too Hard, while he was a good two year old; he won the Talindert Stakes and the Sires Produce Stakes, both races at Flemington.

Whatever All Too Hard would do at two, it was certain he would do better at three, it was a stellar season for the Hawkes team, the Orr Stakes, Caulfield Guineas, defeating Pierro, and finishing ahead of him again, while still maturing and beating all but Ocean Park in the Cox Plate.

He came back in the autumn as if he had never been away, and a great autumn followed, winning the Futurity and the time honoured All Aged Stakes, as his grand sire, Flying Spur did.

All Too Hard has the ideal formula to attract breeders, he has an excellent pedigree, most importantly he has never been over used with racing, just the 12 starts, winning 7 times in major races, 4 at Group 1 level, and only out of the money twice.

His pedigree can hardly be questioned, being a half brother to Black Caviar, and being closely related to Magnus and Wilander.

His first of his foals are now three, they have not been over raced, they are now three and likely to emulate their sire.

Four winners in three days, and seven winners in the new season, speaks well for All Too Hard, who is going places .
