Black Caviar Certain 2012 Robert Sangster Stakes Starter

After once again impressing her trainer Peter Moody in a Caulfield hit-out on Tuesday morning, Australia’s turf queen Black Caviar has been confirmed as a certain starter in the Robert Sangster Stakes 2012 at Morphettville on Saturday week.

Black Caviar will accept for the 2012 Robert Sangster Stakes in Adelaide on April 28

Last seen posting her ninth Group 1 victory in the Lightning Stakes at Flemington in February, the flawless Black Caviar will shoot for her 20th turf triumph on the trot when she makes her Adelaide race debut in the $350,000 Group 1 Robert Sangster Stakes (1200m), registered as the Sportingbet Classic, on April 28.

This morning the world’s highest rated mare easily won her 800-metre trial by a blistering eight lengths in a sharp time of 45.99 seconds, the last 100-metres in 12.5, her regular rider Luke Nolen in the saddle.

“She’s actually had a nice blow but she comes to hand quite quickly,” Nolen said of the $5.2 million earner after this morning’s effort.

“Her aerobic capacity is quite solid and she only takes probably two really solid gallops to come to hand.

“She had one of them this morning and she’ll probably have her next one on Tuesday (next week).

“She’ll need that gallop next week.”

After the Robert Sangster Stakes, Black Caviar’s appearance in which comes as a major boost for the South Australian Jockey Club (SAJC), Moody was also keen to back her up in the $350,000 Group 1 The Goodwood (1200m) also at Morphettville on May 12.

They will likely be her last runs on home soil, Black Caviar overseas-bound with the riches of England’s Royal Ascot Carnival calling starting with the Group 1 Diamond Jubilee (1207m) in July.

Nolen confirmed that Moody would run Black Caviar twice in Adelaide before her international campaign to ensure her fitness levels were top notch for her appearance on the world stage.

“Because it’s such a journey she won’t be doing much for the first two weeks she’s there,” Nolen said.

“She’ll only need probably the one searching gallop before contesting the Diamond Jubilee.”

Moody confirmed that his stable ace blowing after the trial was an indicator for him that a final one or two runs down under were necessary for Black Caviar before her Royal Ascot foray.

“It was good,” Moody said after the jump-out.

“Her action was good, on pulling up she was having a nice blow, so she’s pretty much where we want her.

“She pulled up well, she had a good blow but she’s coped with it all well.

“She is still big in condition but you’d expect that.

“She’s still three runs off her goal which is the Diamond Jubilee in mid-June.

“Had she pulled up very clean in the wind it would have suggested we were ahead of the game and she wouldn’t have required a run, there would have just been no reason to do it.

“But my line of reasoning is that she’s such a big, gross-doing filly, if I don’t give her the two runs (in Adelaide) she’s going to need a fair bit of work.

“They are Group 1s and they’re worth half-a-million dollars.”

Moody was also confident he had made the right choice in selecting Adelaide for Black Caviar next race.

“Adelaide is the right option,” he said.

“She’s got two short trips on the truck to get there and she’ll come straight home after the first one.

“It gives her a three-week window before she heads overseas.

“It’ll be late May, early June, we just want to keep her here as long as possible.”

Black Caviar currently shares the Australasian record for consecutive metropolitan wins on 19 with Gloaming and Desert Gold, a Robert Sangster win ensuring she surpasses that.

This could be your last chance to back our darling of the green Black Caviar in Australia so get on the bandwagon and back this mighty mare at the best odds through
