Time and Patience Rewarded

Time is a rewarding factor, just that little bit of patience and everything can fall into place.

That happened at Sandown Park on Saturday when Villermont blew the field away coming from last, and posting a Group 2 win in the Sandown Guineas, presenting his sire, All Too Hard, with another Stakes winner.

Villermont made a case that he will be something to be reckoned with in the autumn, that he is a highly promising three year old.

It could be a case of like father like son, All To Hard was a handy two year old with the promise of more come.

He soon wore the crown when he won the Caulfield Guineas convincingly, and was beaten a head in the Cox Plate by Ocean Park, Pierro ran third.

He promised a lot and delivered when he again met open age and the best three year olds in the prestigious All Aged Stakes Group 1, with a history going back to 1866.

His son, Villermont, will now go for a well earned break and re appear in the autumn, his mission naturally would be the Australian Guineas, and the Australian Cup could be another option, he is a colt with a lot of potential.

All Too Hard just had to get a good horse; Villermont is from his second crop, he is still a preparation away, however, he is learning quickly, the autumn awaits him.

Whilst All Too Hard was not your early precocious two year old, he did win three of his four starts.

His first two crops of yearlings were well sought after by many of our leading trainers, five lots exceeding half a million dollars or more.

All Too Hard double at Wyong

All Too Hard is making up for lost time with a winning double at Wyong, when All Too Huiying won a Maiden over 1600 metres, and Groundbreak scored at 1350 metres.

There is no surprise concerning All Too Hard, all the good judges predicted he would be much better off with his second season crop, and that is coming to fruition, that was the pattern when he raced.

All Too Hard sired 11 winners in his first season, and is well on target for his second season, with 17 winners to date.


All Too Hard celebrates in style

Darhad became the eighth individual winner this season for his sire, All Too Hard, when he won at Hawkesbury on Thursday.

He almost had a winner at Flemington when Eclair Sunshine beat all but the boom colt Royal Symphony.

That was an outstanding performance, to be beaten by the best three year old colt in Australia

All Too Hard leads the Australia’s second season sires list with prizemoney earnings of $340,000 this season.

He has become the pace setter ahead of Your Song, Golden Archer, Bullet Train, Reliable Man ,Dalakhani, Barbados, and Pierro.

Black Type is awaiting the unbeaten Superhard when he runs at Caulfield tomorrow, and Lincoln Hills, at Hastings in New Zealand.    


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 .
