It hasn't taken long for All Too Hard to notch his first black-type performer with Mystic Empire in the Group 3 Widden Stakes (1100m) at Rosehill on Saturday. The Gai Waterhouse – Adrian Bott trained filly finished a half-length second to Teaspoon after sprinting to a clear lead in the straight. Her condition ran out in the final stages but connections were pleased with the first-up effort after a four-month spell.
"She ran really well," jockey Tim Clark said. "And she will improve with that run under the belt."
Mystic Empire (2f All Too Hard - Empress Wu by General Nediym) had finished midfield at her only other start in the LR Gimcrack Stakes last October. "She's talented and very prof
What a tremendous return to racing by our sensational, flashy looking filly Scarlet Rain, winning the 8th race on Saturday at Rosehill in a display of sheer talent and toughness. Her loyal and passionate owners were in awe and tears after watching their dearly loved filly salute first up after, over 10 months on the sidelines due to throat issue. Ridden exceptionally well by Tim Clark, Scarlet Rain took up her customary spot in the lead before being softened up in front. On straightening it looked as if the long stint on the sidelines may make it difficult for Scarlet Rain to burn the candle at both ends so to speak however trained to the minute by Gai Waterhouse, Adrian Bott and Tulloch Lod

Snitzel 4YO - Dark Eyes is putting together quite the record after winning his 4th race yesterday at Randwick at just his 12th start. He is also gaining a reputation as one of the toughest horses in training after looking beat with 150m to run but lifted off the canvass by gun jockey Tye Angland to win impressively. Trained by the in form partnership of Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott, Dark Eyes was sent out a warm favourite yesterday in the Benchmark 72 1400m handicap. Dark Eyes had to lump the huge impost of 61.5kgs before fighting his way to the line to win by a neck.
