Bring On the ATC Derby! Group III for All Too Hard's All Too Huiying
Mark Smith - Thursday November 9

All Too Huiying has finally learned what winning is all about and he looks like he is beginning to enjoy it.

Despite placing in the Listed Fernhill handicap at Randwick and the Group II Champagne Classic at Doomben last season at two, the son of All Too Hard went to the post 10 times before his first win.

That came in a Wyong maiden over 1600 metres on October 12 and he backed that up with another win over 1800m at Hawkesbury a fortnight later.

Trainer Gary Moore took the son of All Too Hard down to Melbourne for the Group III Seppelt Wines Stakes (1800m) at Flemington on Oaks day.

He didn't find a lot of love from punters and was allowed to go off a $31 chance.

Taken to the front by Michael Walker, All Too Huiying came under attack from the Savabeel colt Black Sail but was up for the challenge.

In fact, he seemed to relish it and was sparked back into life.

He safely held the challenge by Black Sail by a short-neck with Sky Boy (Pendragon) three-quarter of a length back in third. (photos Grant Courtney)

"He gave me a hard ride. I was in front and off the bridle," Walker said.

"He had his ears pricked and was trying to stop.

"Gary's got a real good horse on his hands here. I think the further he goes the better he is going to get.

"He did nothing until that other horse got to me. Before that he was happy to glide along. When he puts his mind on the job he's going to be a serious horse."

Moore said he was confident the son of All Too Hard would relish the distance.

"He's a great horse. I'm really happy for the stallion All Too Hard, he's shown he can produce a really good horse.

"Don't forget he ran second in a Group II as a 2yo.

"He's really come to the fore now. We are riding him on the speed and on what he did today he is a serious derby horse next year.

"I went to this race really confident except we drew wide. He's got a lot of gate speed and he looked in very, very good condition today.

Moore said he will consider the Sandown Guineas for All Too Huiying otherwise he will be spelled.

A $150,000 purchase by his trainer from the Mill Park draft at the 2016 Magic Millions Adelaide Yearling sale All Too Huiying advances his record to 3 wins, 2 seconds and 2 thirds from 12 starts with earnings of $219,180.

A half-brother top triple Group I winner Happy Trails and Group III winner Danish Twist, All Too Huiying is the eighth foal of the Perugino mare Madame Flurry, a three-quarter-sister to the stakes-placed Flurry's Gem, the dam of Listed winner Toluka and half-sister to stakes winner Lake Villa and stakes-placed Flurry's Autumn who is the dam of Group III winner Royal Sash, in turn the dam of Group II winner Sabatini.

Madame Flurry has a yearling colt by Sebring and a filly foal by Shotting To Win.

All Too Huiying becomes the second stakes-winner and first Group winner from the first crop by Vinery Stud's 4-time Group 1 winner All Too Hard.
