All Too Hard sired a second five-length winner this week when All Too Sublime spanked his rivals at Geelong on Friday.
Sent off a short-priced $1.70 favourite first-up since December, All Too Sublime jumped straight to the lead and gave Jye McNeil an armchair ride in the Geelong Financial Maiden (1100m). “That was easy – he won with plenty in hand. They tried to soften him up but he was never under pressure.”
Friday’s result followed Domination’s runaway win for All Too Hard at Balaklava on Wednesday. It also mirrored the Vinery sire’s domination of the Australian second-season premiership with 73 individual winners of 110 races.
All Too Sublime (3g All Too Hard – Sublimity by Testa Rossa) is trained by Anthony Freedman for Musk Creek Farm owner-breeder David Kobritz. His dam won an Alexandra Stakes LR at Moonee Valley and is closely-related to Australian Guineas Gr.1 winner Palentino.
“He does everything right and travelled beautifully for Jye,” stable foreman Brad Taylor said. “He showed a really impressive turn of foot on the corner and there are obviously better things in store for him.
“He’s a 4yo in 10 days and David has been very patient. But he earned about $40,000 today with the bonus from Super VOBIS.”
Earlier on Friday, Frustrated looked another promising prospect for All Too Hard winning a Warwick Farm trial for Emmanuel Bloodstock. A 2yo colt from Brave Soul (More Than Ready), he was a $130,000 buy at the 2017 Inglis Classic Sale and the pedigree has received more black-type since then with advent of star filly Sunlight.
All Too Hard stands for a $33,000 service fee this year and he will parade for broodmare owners at Vinery Stud’s Open Days on August 25 & 26.
