The new order in Australian racing took shape at Randwick on Saturday.
And in the way of royalty, the throne has been claimed by its rightful heir.
Too Hard, the younger brother of the departing queen Black Caviar,
produced the run of his career to win the All Aged Stakes and move to
the top of the tree.
The colt who had beaten the best three-year-olds in the spring in the
Caulfield Guineas and then ran a brave second in the Cox Plate, sealed
his bid for the No.1 ranking in Australian racing with his defeat of the
older horses in racing's ultimate test - Group One at weight-for-age.
