All Too Hard (AUS)
Champion All Too Hard

(Casino Prince-Helsinge, by Desert Sun)
Stands 2017 at Vinery Stud, NSW, for $44,000

Champion trainer John Hawkes rated All Too Hard in the same league as Lonhro and backed that up with good money for his first-crop yearlings. Team Hawkes targeted his colts spending over $2.40 million on 11 yearlings. They made as much as $440,000 at the Gold Coast Magic Millions and $320,000 at the Inglis Sydney Easter Sale. All Too Hard topped the overall median ($220,000) for freshman sires at the Gold Coast and the averages ($244,048) at the Inglis Easter Sale.

Those returns make him value-plus for a $55,000 (inc gst) service fee at Vinery this year.

A younger half-brother to Black Caviar, he cost $1,025,000 as a yearling in 2011 after Hawkes saw off some spirited opposition including under-bidder Peter Moody. The colt paid that back with over $2.28 million in prizemoney and he added an extra zero in residual value after winning the stallion-making G1 Caulfield Guineas. “He’s right up there with the best I’ve ever trained,” Hawkes stated. “He’s a serious horse and is in the same class as Lonhro. He’s an absolute athlete and he’s got the family, the pedigree and a big heart.”

All Too Hard was ranked Australia’s Champion 3YO in 2012-13. He earned that rating after powering past Pierro in the G1 Caulfield Guineas and then returning for an unbeaten autumn campaign in the G1 Orr Stakes, G1 Futurity Stakes and G1 All Aged Stakes.

Black Caviar and All Too Hard led the Australians on the 2013 World Racehorse Rankings. Black Caviar was rated the world’s best with Arc de Triomphe winner Treve on 130 and All Too Hard was the next-best local on 122.

The dams of his first-crop two year-olds reads like a who’s who of bluebloods topped by 18 Group 1 winners and the dams of 12 Group 1 winners. The Group 1 winners included Allez Wonder, Bel Mer, Bollinger, Devil Moon, Fashions Afield, Makybe Diva, Regimental Gal, Serious Speed etc.
