Black Caviar will be making her highly anticipated next appearance in the 2011 William Reid Stakes this Friday night March 25, 2011.
The four-year-old super mare was confirmed as a nominee for the $500,000 race when the 2011 William Reid Stakes nominations were released yesterday.
The nominations have attracted 14 other horses who are brave enough to have a crack at breaking Black Caviar’s dream run, all hoping to stop her from posting her 11th straight victory.
Included in the nominations for the 1,200 metre William Reid Stakes is Crystal Lily, who finished the best of the rest when she crossed the line second to Black Caviar in the Group 1 Newmarket Handicap on March 12, 2011.
The Stratum filly has proved that she has tremendous ability, winning four of her 11 starts, including last year’s Group 1 Golden Slipper.
The classy filly will attempt to wreak havoc on her talented older rival, Black Caviar, by coming up trumps when they meet for the second time in two weeks in the 2011 William Reid Stakes.
The Black Caviar camp is unperturbed by the competition, with Peter Moody’s racing manager Jeff O’Conner saying that not event wet weather would put them off racing the superstar at Moonee Valley this Friday night.
With showers forecast in and around Moonee Valley for the next few days, the question surrounding Black Caviar is whether she can perform in the wet, or could her perfection have a weakness?
The Bel Esprit mare has been tried on dead tracks four times, but has never once been tested on a slow or heavy track.
Her competition will be hoping that the rain will be the one kryptonite of Black Caviar’s, who until now has seemed completely and utterly unbeatable.
