All Too Hard Winner South Africa

Tara Madgwick - Saturday December 16
All Too Hard posted his second winner in South Africa on Friday with a runaway win at Fairview for three year-old gelding Overdose, who has a half-brother headed to the 2018 Inglis Classic Yearling Sale.

Overdose as a yearlingTrained by Candice Bass-Robinson, Overdose was favourite for the 2400 metre maiden and bolted in to win by four and three-quarter lengths.

Bred by Kia Ora Stud, Overdose was a $25,000 Inglis Classic purchase for Heritage Bloodstock from the Bhima Thoroughbreds draft and is the second winner for unraced Gayika, a full sister to South African Horse of the Year and four-time Group I winner Igugu.

Bhima will offer the current yearling from Gayika, a colt by Deep Field as Lot 411 at the 2018 Inglis Classic Yearling Sale.
