The Casino Prince colt is likely to travel overseas to compete at Royal Ascot in late June, however, has still been nominated for a Brisbane winter campaign.

All Too Hard has won seven of his 12 race starts and has earned more than $2.28 million in prize money during his horse racing career.

The three-year-old, who is owned by Vinery Stud, has won all three of his race starts in 2013, with his most recent being in the Group 1 All Aged Stakes at Royal Randwick last weekend.

Last year’s runner-up, Lights Of Heaven, is also included in the 2013 Doomben Cup nominations.

Lights Of Heaven has won seven of her 22 race starts and has earned more than $1.3 million in prize money.

The Zabeel mare will begin her Brisbane campaign in the Group 2 Hollindale Stakes this weekend, before continuing on towards the 2013 Doomben Cup.

Zabeelionaire will also look to earn a 2013 Doomben Cup start with a top three finish at Flemington Racecourse this weekend.

The four-year-old finished seventh of seven runners at Caulfield last start and will look to put his first up failure behind him.

“He didn’t go well enough (first-up) as far as I was concerned to warrant a trip to Brisbane,” trainer Leon Corstens said.

“It costs a lot of money so you want to know for sure he’s going well before going interstate.

“He would want to run in the first three on Saturday.”
