Caulfield: Black Caviar's brother All Too Hard wins his second Group 1


All Too Hard, the younger half-brother of  Black Caviar - who was unbeaten in 22 starts - is holding up the family’s reputation quite well in Australia.

Saturday, All Too Hard won his second Group 1 race in the $412,000 C.F. Orr Stakes over seven furlongs at Caulfield Racecourse. Ridden by Dwayne Dunn, All Too Hard closed from the back of the nine-horse field to win by a half-length over the 15-1 shot Mawingo. Mr Moet was third.

The previously unbeaten Callanish, making his Group 1 debut, could only finish eighth after fighting for the early lead.

The Orr Stakes was the first Group 1 race of 2013 in Australia.

All Too Hard, a 4-year-old by Casino Prince, was confidently ridden by Dunn. Sent off as the 13-10 favorite, the colt rallied wide through the stretch to reach the front with a sixteenth of a mile remaining.

Purchased by Vinery Stud in December, All Too Hard won the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas on Oct. 13, and was second in the prestigious Cox Plate against older horses two weeks later. He has been mentioned as a candidate for Group 1 Australian Guineas at Flemington Racecourse in March and the Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot in England in June.

They changed the name of the Lightning Stakes to the "Black Caviar Lightning Stakes" in her honor. While shes still racing and when she is going to run in it? mmmm mmm mmm. Thats the kiss of death.

there should be an effort made to have a world racing carnival on neutral ground over a month period where you would have one grass sprint over 6f then 3 weeks later a dirt sprint over the same distance with bonuses for horses that participated in both and an incentive bonus for the horses that hit the board in both.you could also have a mile race and a 1 1/4 mile under the same format and conditions all at weight for age.it would go a long way towards settling the Peking order amongst the horses and the breeding programmes of various nations.if neutral ground is to hard to find have a rotation of venues between the us Europe and asia.
