More information


This is one beautiful type of filly. Big, rangy and stands over ground and has a good nature. A very good moving filly, extremely athletic, absolutely floats along when moving. Hard to find a better type, she has it all physically.  She also looks like all of the top shelf running fillies.

Outstanding individual that commands attention. This filly is very powerfully built and has a great head and eye. A filly with loads of presence.

The filly has completed being broken in at Evergreen Stud being educated by astute breaker Gordon Pratt. Gordon has reported, “She is a very big and strong filly. She has showed the signs that she could potentially run early. This filly has a lot of precociousness about her and is also very well built. Good knees, put together well and a neat horse. She handled every and is also a big striding horse. I like the horse, I like riding her and she came around easily. She showed me the goods”.

The All Too Hard filly is currently spelling and will go into work shortly before heading over to Gerald Ryan’s Rosehill stables to prepare for the 2yo races.
