Black Caviar Out Weighted for Brisbane Hat-Trick

Premier Victorian-based horseman Peter Moody has confirmed the weight his superstar mare Black Caviar will be allocated for the upcoming Stradbroke Handicap rules her out of a winning hat-trick during the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival.

Black Caviar

Black Caviar will not be accepted for the 2011 Stradbroke Handicap

Black Caviar strode to an effortless win in last Saturday’s Group 1 BTC Cup at Doomben, saluting for her 13th consecutive win in front of a cheering capacity crowd in her Queensland debut.

The freakishly talented four-year-old will now vie for back-to-back elite level wins in Brisbane, shooting to equal Bernborough’s record of seven straight Group 1 victories in the $650,000 Doomben 10,000 (1350m) on Saturday May 28.

Moody also has the ‘Black Flash’ and $3.47 million earner nominated for the richest sprint feature on the Queensland racing calendar, the $1 million Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1400m) at Eagle Farm on June 11.

However, with news today from handicapper Nathan Bourke that Black Caviar would be allocated 60.5kg for the Stradbroke, Moody will not accept his stable star for the feature.

“It’s not on the cards,” Moody said.

“She was only entered as a precaution in case something went wrong along the way and she missed the Doomben 10,000 for some reason.

“She won’t run in the Stradbroke.”

To date the largest weight speed machine Black Caviar has carried to victory was 58kg in the Group 1 Newmarket Handicap (1200m) at Flemington on March 12, a race she easily won by three lengths.

Despite her powerful build and undeniable ability, Moody would not risk running her with an extra 2.5kg on top of her Newmarket weight.

She would also have to surpass the modern weight-carrying record in the Stradbroke by 2kg.

Rough Habit and Campaign King hold the record having won with 58.5kg on their backs in 1992 and 1988 respectively.

The next heaviest-weighted Stradbroke Handicap hopeful this year will be John McNair’s gallant galloper Hay List with 57.5kg.

Hay List has faced the queen four times now and been defeated each time, including on Saturday when two lengths away from Black Caviar in the BTC Cup.

Early Stradbroke markets have Hay List on the third line of betting at $7.50, behind likely non-acceptor Black Caviar ($6) and $4.20 favourite Sincero.

Odds on the Stephen Farley-trained three-year-old Sincero are likely to firm after Stradbroke Handicap weights are released, the gun gelding having won six straight after saluting in the Scone Guineas on Saturday.

Sincero will drop back dramatically in the weights for the Stradbroke, to receive just 49.5kg.

This will mean he will either have to earn a re-handicap or win a ballot-exempt race to make the final Stradbroke field next month.
