All Too Hard to fault this filly

to fault this filly

A powerhouse of a filly from a family that Duncan and trainer Phillip Stokes know all too well having enjoyed plenty of success with her dam and close relation, Miss Gunpowder. By All Too Hard, she’s got the pedigree to ensure she’ll pack a punch on the racetrack.

Trained by Phillip Stokes, Morphettville.

This filly hails from a family that DGR’s Duncan Ramage and Phillip Stokes know all too well.

Duncan bred and managed her dam Think Out Loud and her dam’s Group 2-winning half-sister Miss Gunpowder. Phillip trained both mares to victory, and now, the opportunity has presented itself to emulate that success with an outstanding filly by All Too Hard.

Offered at Inglis Classic as Lot 151, she was a $160,000 buy from Tyreel Stud. She is the third foal from her So You Think dam, Think Out Loud who won or placed in five races.

Since the catalogue went to print, her half-sister Badda Boom Baby has won two races, including a dominant 2.3 length last start victory.

Her dam’s half-sister Miss Gunpowder won eight races, scoring impressive headline wins in the G3 MVRC Thousand Guineas Prelude and Listed BRC Hinkler Handicap.

All Too Hard was a dominant racehorse and is now one of Australia’s leading sires. His winners/runners strike rate sits and 69% and he has sired 22 individual stakes winners, including multiple Group 1 winners Alligator Blood, Wellington, Behemoth and Forbidden Love.

This filly’s damsire So You Think has well and truly announced himself as an emerging broodmare sire. His daughters have already produced Champion 2YO Golden Slipper winner Fireburn, plus international stakes performers Slevka and Caroline Street.

Ownership opportunities are available to race this filly with DGR and Phillip Stokes.

Duncan's Comments

“I have insider knowledge of this family, having bred and raced her dam and her dam's half-sister, Group 2 winner Miss Gunpowder. Phillip Stokes trained both mares, so we were thrilled to buy back into the family. Her sire All Too Hard, who is renowned for throwing elite racehorses, added even more appeal. She's a lovely individual grown out by a proven breeder.”
