Mornington Lines Up For Piece Of The Caviar Pie

Black Caviar has dominated fields across Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane and Mornington could be one of the next stops as the show rolls on.

Before locals get too excited she won’t be in full flight, the Mornington Race Club instead trying to secure her for a track gallop during their meeting on Melbourne Cup Day.

Black Caviar is likely to race at Flemington in the Patinack Classic five days later and MRC chairman Mike Symons said they were in talks with Peter Moody about a possible exhibition run.

“We are planning for 5000-8000 (attendance), but if we get Black Caviar that’ll pack them in,” Symons said.

After seeing what she did for horse racing over the Autumn and Winter there’s no doubt clubs around the country want to get a piece of Black Caviar in any form they can.

She changed the entire racing scene in Brisbane in May and even at half pace her mere presence would be a huge boost at Mornington.

It’s still far from a done deal, in fact  connections haven’t even confirmed her as a runner in the Patinack Farm Classic, or even in Australia at all.

A recent shift in the bonus structure for oversees race winners is a big step towards securing her presence but the big money in Japan is still a huge drawcard.

One piece of the puzzle that has been locked into place is Government approval for their ‘phantom meeting’ on Melbourne Cup Day to go ahead.

Caulfield had proposed a similar plan in 2010 but met stiff resistance from the VRC who argued it would detract from the Flemington main event.

Symons says they are targeting a completely different demographic at Mornington though and it will cater for an even larger audience to enjoy the event.

“We plan a family-friendly day,” Symons said.

“We are catering for people who would be spending the day at home having a barbecue.

“We are not competing with Flemington.”

It will be a big few days for the club who have their Peninsula Cup meeting just two days prior to the Melbourne Cup.
