13 Straight in Three States but Black Caviar Staying Put for Now

Ask any of the 20,000 plus racegoers who witnessed Black Caviar’s incredible ability first-hand at Doomben last Saturday whether she’s the best in the world and odds are they will answer yes without hesitation.

Black Caviar

Black Caviar will remain in Australia for now according to trainer Peter Moody

The country’s champion mare, now a six time elite level victor thanks to  a 13th consecutive win in the BTC Cup on Saturday, Black Caviar is a superstar in the eyes of racing fans around the world.

Now the pressure is on trainer Peter Moody more than ever to prove Black Caviar’s dominance in the international arena and head overseas with the brilliant black flash.

Moody, however, is in no rush to boot Black Caviar off on an overseas campaign and seems very happy to keep her on Aussie shores.

Proving time and time again just how superior her sprinting prowess is, Black Caviar remains undefeated in her 13 starts to date and no doubt will add another to that and equal Phar Lap for successive wins when she takes her place in the $650,000 Group 1 Doomben 10,000 (1350m) on Saturday week.

Having won over $3.74 million in prize money for connections to date, it is no doubt tempting to take Black Caviar on an international crusade.

But for now what seems to be fuelling Moody’s fire more than chasing overseas glory is stepping his stable favourite up in distance and showing her potential as not only a sprinter, but a miler as well.

The Doomben 10,000 is the first start in this exciting challenge, as Black Caviar will race over a distance greater than 1200m for the first time.

Still, the ease in which she continues to trounce her rivals has no one worried she won’t handle the increase, especially the punters who have backed her into $1.18 in the early Doomben 10,000 markets.

The autumn prospects for Caviar if Moody continues with the plan are also scintillating.

There’s the Group 1 CF Orr Stakes and Futurity Stakes over 1400m at Caulfield followed by Rosehill’s George Ryder Stakes over 1500m in Sydney.

It has been a truly champagne experience for Australian racing fans around the country to witness Black Caviar’s magic run, the mare drawing more and more followers by the day.

“You don’t see crowds like this at the races anymore,” Peter Moody’s wife Sarah commented on the BTC Cup Day turnout.

“She has brought people back to the races.

“It’s just amazing.”

While yet to be convinced on campaigning Black Caviar overseas, her regular rider Luke Nolen has expressed his hopes that she will head to England next year.

Nolen, winner of seven Group 1 wins this season thanks primarily to Black Caviar, believes the unbeaten mare from Melbourne would be a star overseas as well as here in Australia.

“I rode for the World Cup team in England in the Shergar Cup series last August,” Nolen said.

“I had five rides from a possible six and rode a winner.

“There were four teams from England, Ireland, Europe and the World team.

“It was a great experience and I’d love to go back there with Black Caviar.”

Still, Moody is staying put for now.

“I’ve been to Ascot and had my bum kicked twice and I do want to go back to beat them,” Moody said.

“Hong Kong is probably the first option, but why do we need to leave here?”
