Black Caviar is Secretly Served Brisbane

The world’s fastest horse has covertly set hoof in Queensland, Black Caviar ready to make her Brisbane race debut and add more triumph to her already supreme list of racing feats.

Peter Moody’s brilliant Bel Esprit four-year-old, undefeated in 12 starts to date and coming dangerously close to equalling the great Bernborough’s record of 15 consecutive victories, Black Caviar has officially arrived in the Sunshine State.

Black Caviar has secretly arrived in Queensland ahead of her BTC Cup run next week

Although arriving in secret with connections keeping her location undisclosed, Queensland racing fans can rest assured the queen is there.

“I’m not sure exactly when she arrived but she’s here,” Brisbane Racing Club chairman Kevin Dixon confirmed.

While Dixon does not know where Black Caviar is currently being stabled, he has been informed that the superstar sprinter could enjoy her first trackwork at Doomben on Saturday.

“We’re making arrangements for her to work on the course proper at Doomben, but that will depend whether Peter Moody wants her to work then,” Dixon said.

Queensland born-and-bred now Melbourne-based trainer Peter Moody was forced to float his stable favourite from Melbourne to Queensland last weekend after a suitable flight was unavailable for Black Caviar.

Black Caviar likely arrived on Sunday and is reportedly in excellent order at a local stable near Eagle Farm.

With five Group 1 wins in a row and counting, Black Caviar’s first Brisbane Winter Carnival aim is the $400,000 Group 1 BTC Cup (1200m) at Doomben on May 14.

A race one by the likes of Apache Cat, Thorn Park, Falvelon and General Nediym in recent years, the BTC Cup has not experienced a champion such as Black Caviar before but perhaps the people of Brisbane have.

Foaled in Oakey, the late Bernborough was a racehorse of the highest level and still holds the record for the most consecutive victories.

His wins included the Newmarket Handicap and of course the Doomben Cup.

In 1946 the stands at Doomben Racecourse were packed to the rafters, racing fans of all creeds and class cheering on the dour galloper who carted an incredible 68kg to victory in the Doomben Cup.

Now over five decades later the roars of the crowd are again set to match those for Bernborough with an army of salmon and black polka-dot supporters preparing for Black Caviar.

Such is the importance of Black Caviar’s appearance in Brisbane, the BRC is presently preparing a unique stable block that will hold Black Caviar along with up to 12 other horses at Eagle Farm.

“We are building about a dozen stables at Eagle Farm and one is specifically for Black Caviar,” Dixon said.

“We are making sure there will be appropriate security.”

No surprise with the short $1.18 price on Black Caviar to record her sixth straight victory at elite level in the BTC Cup.

Dixon has confirmed that there will also be top level security in place for Black Caviar’s only foreseeable BTC Cup danger Hay List ($6).

Making the history books as the first Australian-trained thoroughbred to top the World Thoroughbred Rankings, Black Caviar is likely to be knocked off that post.

The new WTR will be released later this month and champion juvenile Frankel is tipped to replace Black Caviar at the top after his stunning victory in the English 2000 Guineas last weekend that saw him join Caviar at the top of the standings at 133.

Hay List is third in the world rankings after his success in the All Aged Stakes at a mark of 126.
