Cristal cruising for Lindsay Park

All Too Hard filly Cristal Eyes is ready for a return to black-type racing following an easy kill at Pakenham on Thursday evening.

She impressed Damien Oliver while cruising to a comfortable victory first-up since September.  “We lobbed in the box-seat and it feels like she’s come back well,” he said.  “I was a bit concerned about taking on the older horses but she is a stakes-class filly.”

Cristal Eyes (3f All Too Hard – Champagne Run by More Than Ready) was placed in the TBV Stakes Gr.3 at Flemington this time last year but didn’t come up for the Thousand Guineas Gr.1 in the spring.

“She’s been working the house down and that was easy to watch,” Lindsay Park co-trainer Ben Hayes said.  “She looked the winner a long way from home and was strong through the line.”

Cristal Eyes is a three-quarter sister to All Too Hard’s Sandown Guineas Gr.2 winner Villermont and was a $100,000 buy for Alan Green and Brian Singer at the 2017 Inglis Easter Yearling Sale.

The All Too Hard – More Than Ready cross has also generated stakes performers like Outrageous, Za Zi Ba and Over And Above who completed a hat-trick at Morphettville on Australia Day.

One of the standouts among the All Too Hard yearlings from Vinery at the Inglis Classic Sale is the colt from More Than Ready’s Sydney winner Ready Miss (Lot 639).

Vinery’s All Too Hard – Attunga Rose colt (Lot 132) is also due for an update on Saturday when his older brother Domination runs in Race 7 at Morphettville.
