Star colt All Too Hard has arrived in Sydney yesterday sound and well.
The Team Hawkes-trained 3YO was ruled out of last month’s Australian Guineas (1600m) with a temperature after claiming Group One wins in the WFA C F Orr Stakes and the Futurity Stakes.
He arrived in Sydney yesterday to resume his autumn campaign and is scheduled to have a barrier trial on Friday then run in the All Aged Stakes (1400m) on Saturday week, the final day of the Randwick carnival.
Fellow star 3YO and Australian Derby winner It’s A Dundeel is likely to contest the WFA Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m) on the same day
There is a chance All Too Hard could race in Ascot after the Autumn carnival, but regardless, he is likely to retire from racing in the Spring.
In other news, Team Hawkes has also been named to train the $5 million Redoute’s Choice half brother to Black Caviar and All Too Hard bought by BC3 Thoroughbreds at last week’s Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale.
