Countdown on to Black Caviar Next Race – Australia Stakes 2012

There is just eight weeks to go before Australia’s turf queen Black Caviar graces the races once more, the undefeated superstar back in work ahead of her return in the 2012 Australia Stakes at the end of next month.

Black Caviar is preparing for her return in the 2012 Australia Stakes next month

The brilliant Bel Esprit five-year-old was last seen running away to win her 16th consecutive career start, Peter Moody’s $4.3 million earner going back-to-back in the Group 1 Patinack Farm Classic on November 5 at Flemington.

On January 27 Black Caviar will seek turf triumph No. 17 defending her title in another race, the $200,000 Group 2 Australia Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley during the Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival.

“It’s eight weeks from now,” Moody said of Black Caviar’s next race.

“She came back into work on Monday and she’ll have a month on the water walker at Peter Clarke’s property and then have a month with me.”

Moody said that the already hulking mare had put on an extra 60 kilos over the past few weeks, the masterful horseman thrilled with how well Black Caviar had done during her break.

“It’s phenomenal how well she has done,” he said.

“She just couldn’t stay out any longer (because of the weight).”

It will kick off what could be Black Caviar’s final racing season in her home country, future plans for the glamour mare being to head overseas to showcase the champion to the rest of the world starting with England’s Royal Ascot Carnival in July.

Next season will also be Black Caviar’s first stepping up in distance, Moody keen to see her shine over 1400 metres for the first time with targets including the $400,000 Group 1 CF Orr Stakes and $500,000 Group 1 Futurity Stakes both over 1400m at Caulfield in the autumn penciled in for his stable ace.
