All Too Hard On 2012 AJC Sires Produce Path – Preview

April 3rd, 2012

The Group 1 AJC Sires Produce Stakes is due to run at Royal Randwick Racecourse on Saturday April 14, 2012.

Run under set-weight conditions, the race is also run over a distance of 1,400 metres,

The 2012 AJC Sires Produce Stakes is worth $500,000 in prize money and is open to three-year-old horses only.

All Too Hard is being aimed at the 2012 AJC Sires Produce Stakes after being withdrawn from the 2012 Golden Slipper field this weekend.

The half-brother to Black Caviar has won all three of his previous race starts and was the race favourite for the 2012 Golden Slipper.

Co-trainer John Hawkes opted to run All Too Hard in the 2012 AJC Sires’ Produce Stakes as his first taste of Group 1 racing.

“He’s only young,” Hawkes said.

“Golden Slippers are very, very tough races. There’s a lot of aggression and thrashing and bashing.

“In some ways I wish he was running.

“If he had run and won it would be a real fairy tale but things can always work the wrong way.

The decision to run All Too Hard in the 2012 AJC Sires’ Produce Stakes meant Hawkes sacrificing possible winnings of $200,000 as the winning trainers in a Golden Slipper.

“I’ve never done anything for the money,” he said.

“It’s not all about money – if you are successful money follows anyway.

“If you haven’t got your health and you haven’t got your family you’ve got nothing.

“I’ve always looked after the horse.”

The 2012 AJC Sires Produce Stakes is held on AJC Australian Derby Day and share’s its program with the Group 1 AJC Australian Derby, Group 1 TJ Smith Stakes, Group 2 Sapphire Stakes, Group 2 Chairman’s Handicap, Group 3 Kindergarten Stakes, Group 3 Royal Parma Stakes, Group 3 Carbine Club Stakes and Group 3 Adrian Knox Quality Stakes.
