Horse Description:

Lovely chestnut filly by champion ALL TOO HARD, out of our first Oaks winner ARAPAHO MISS. ALL TOO HARD is a half-brother to arguably the finest horse to ever grace Australian racetracks, the unbeaten champion BLACK CAVIAR, and he has just sired his first stakeswinner in MYSTIC EMPIRE, winner of the Gr3 Widden Stakes over 1100m at Randwick on 29/01/17.

This filly has the athletic physique and strong walk that we look for and displays an intelligent attitude.
