All Too Huiying will head south for a stakes race on VRC Oaks day after a clear-cut victory at Hawkesbury on Thursday.
Trainer Gary Moore has pencilled in the $150,000 Connoisseur Stakes-LR on Thursday, November 9 for the Gr.2 placed son of All Too Hard. He’s a younger half-brother to Group 1 star Happy Trails and the addition of black-type at Flemington will go a long way to confirming his potential as a stayer for the future.
“He’s in great shape and keeps improving,” Moore said after a front-running victory in the Daily Press Hcp (1800m). “He has a lovely temperament and will go on from here. He’s a real nice horse.”
All Too Huiying was second in the Champagne Classic 2yo Group 2 at Doomben but failed in his first stakes assignment this season in the Dulcify Quality at Randwick. “We took the wrong option letting him settle back in the field that day,” Moore admitted. “He’s much better racing on the pace.”
Jockey Christian Reith took over at Wyong earlier this month and is now two-for-two on the colt who looked a picture in the parade ring. “He’s still a bit green and tended to float about in the straight waiting for the others,” Reith reported. “He obviously prefers racing with the leaders but I think he might be even better having one to chase.”
All Too Huiying cost Moore $150,000 when offered through the Mill Park consignment at the 2016 Adelaide Magic Millions. He was bred by SATB committeeman Brenton Parker from Madam Flurry (Perugino) and, besides Happy Trails, his catalogue page is chock-full of stakes winners in Adelaide and Melbourne.
All Too Hard, who has Éclair Sunshine nominated for a Group 3 sprint at Moonee Valley on Saturday, stands for a $44,000 (inc gst) fee at Vinery Stud.
