2012 Champagne Stakes Is In All Too Hard’s Sights – Race Preview

April 12th, 2012

The Group 1 Champagne Stakes is due to run at Royal Randwick Racecourse in Sydney on Saturday April 28, 2012.

The 2012 Champagne Stakes is set to run over a distance of 1,600 metres and is run under set weight conditions.

Worth $400,000 in prize money, the 2012 Champagne Stakes is open to two-year-olds only.

All Too Hard is a possible runner in the 2012 Champagne Stakes, with the young colt due to run in the Group 1 Sires Produce Stakes at Royal Randwick this Saturday April 14, 2012 his first challenge.

The half-brother to Black Caviar was withdrawn from the $3.5 million Golden Slipper field and saved for the Sires Produce Stakes.

“He’s an exciting horse and obviously I was disappointed that they didn’t run him in the Slipper,” jockey Dwayne Dunn said.

“Then again, he might have been like Samaready and got back a bit too far out of his ground and been unable to get back into it.”

Dunn is confident that All Too Hard can win this weekend and then back up to win the 2012 Champagne Stakes a week later.

“On Saturday the 1400 metres looks ideal and he should just go there and win and then back up and win the Champagne Stakes as well. But they (connections) might have different ideas,” Dunn said.

“He’s good enough but it is just race by race.

“I think they just want to get that Group One out of the way.”

All Too Hard is currently unbeaten across his first three race starts, with his last win coming in the Group 2 Pago Pago Stakes on March 31, 2012.

The Casino Price colt is already worth big money as a stallion and a win in the 2012 Champagne Stakes would only further add to his value.
