It was business as usual for Black Caviar in the 2011 Patinack Farm Classic winning without so much as a single rev up from jockey Luke Nolen.
It was just as effortless as it always is with punters investing millions of dollars for a tiny return without even breaking a sweat.
There were some individual bets of six figure sums on Black Caviar in the 2011 Patinack Farm Classic but after she jumped cleanly form the gates they were as good as paid out.
Buffering took up the early running and Black Caviar sat just off him in behind biding her time.
It wasn’t so much that Nolen told her to go at the 400m mark, she more just cruised up alongside Buffering as he was running at top flight.
From there she was still held back as she went to the lead and the whip was an unrequited accessory for Nolen throughout the journey.
Buffering held on well for second spot ahead of Mid Summer Music which finished off ok ahead of Curtana.
This little more that can be said about Black Caviar, she’s now won 16 straight and once again she never even looked like being challenged.
It’s a surreal ride for Nolen but he knows every time he comes out he has the weight of a nation on his shoulders.
“They expect her to win, you don’t want to disappoint anyone,” he said.
“Because she’s got this magnificent record we really want to keep it in tact.”
He says it’s such a nice feeling to get back on a champion like Black caviar, especially given his Melbourne Cup Carnival hasn’t been overly fruitful in 2011.
“I’m just over the moon, it’s been a frustrating week for the team and myself so it’s good to get a Group 1 win,” he said.
“She’d done a fantastic job, she’s great ambassador for Australian racing.”
For Peter Moody it’s enough mark to add to the tally and another race he’s got through without a hiccup.
“Its’ relief for me, I’m just grateful to be a little part of it,” he said.
“It’s just great she’s been able to put on a show for the crowd.’
The million dollar question is will she continue on a path to the Winterbottom Stakes in Perth, something those in the West are desperate for.
“The plane goes on Tuesday night, ill have a chat to the owners maybe Monday morning,” he said.
“I’d love to go but we’ve got to make sure the horse is right first.
“It’s a hot day and the track is pretty firm.”
