Schillaci Stakes History Awaits Black Caviar Next Race

Black Caviar is back at the track this Saturday seeking successive wins in the $200,000 Group 2 Schillaci Stakes (1400m), and while the world’s best sprinter looks all but unbeatable, if the racing world goes amiss and she suffers her first career loss she will still enter the Australian racing history books.

Black Caviar

Black Caviar is set to jump the shortest-priced favourite in Fixed Odds history at Caulfield on Saturday

Ace Melbourne trainer Peter Moody is supremely confident that his 13-time winner and six-time Group 1 hero will remain undefeated come Saturday afternoon when Black Caviar takes her spot in the 2011 Schillaci Stakes field at 1:20pm (EDT).

Fresh and fit, Moody has warned that his Bel Esprit mare ready to race into the history books by equalling the immortal Phar Lap’s record of 14 consecutive victories.

“It’s a frightening thought to think she could go quicker, but young Patty Bell who rides her most of her work and Luke (Nolen) in a couple of gallops, they are adamant that she does appear stronger and seems to be enjoying it more,” Moody said.

Every horse, however, has the ability to be beaten and should Black Caviar get rolled in the Schillaci Stakes result she will become the most renowned favourite to get beaten since Hall Of Famer Ajax.

Ajax started 40-1, equivalent to $1.025 in today’s betting odds, before he was sensationally defeated in the 1939 Rawson Stakes which bought his historic 18-consecutive win streak to an end, but Moody doesn’t believe Black Caviar’s first defeat will come on Saturday.

“They’re all there to be beat, but I’m happy with her,” he said.

“No doubt they’ll go like cut cats, but the key to her not getting beat would be staying out of trouble one would imagine.

“I can’t fault her. She hasn’t gone backwards, so if her previous form’s good enough to win this, she’ll win.”

Black Caviar is not quite in Ajax-odds territory for the Schillaci Stakes, but she is still at a star-short quote of $1.06 through Luxbet which is the shortest price many betting agencies have seen on a thoroughbred since fixed-odds were introduced a decade ago.

The next shortest-priced Schillaci Stakes hopefuls are Neville Layt’s talented Canberra filly Karuta Queen at $13 through Luxbet, followed by Black Caviar’s stablemate Kulgrinda ($19) and the nicely drawn Stirling Grove ($26) in gate two.

With Black Caviar’s firm price, punters that want better value for their Schillaci Stakes bets should head to Luxbet and check out their exclusive Exotic bet bonus.
