26 Nominated to Take on Black Caviar – Robert Sangster Stakes 2012

Peter Moody’s announcement that Black Caviar will definitely run in Saturday week’s 2012 Robert Sangster Stakes has failed to scare away the opposition, with 26 other horses nominated for the $400,000 Group 1 event (1200m).

Moody confirmed his Adelaide plans for the wonder mare yesterday which will see her attempt a 20th straight win against her own sex in the Robert Sangster before returning two weeks later for the Group 1 Goodwood Handicap.

Despite the champion sprinter proving unbeatable in her 19 starts to date, a host of trainers were willing to test their horses against the best which has resulted in a quality entry list.

Last year’s Goodwood winner Lone Rock is among the best of the rest nominated for the event and will be coming off a fourth-place effort to star colt Foxwedge in the William Reid Stakes.

Promising Perth mare Power Princess will be stepping up to Group 1 level for the first time and is coming off a reasonable build up that saw her finish runner-up and first in consecutive Listed events at Ascot before running mid-field in the RN Irwin Stakes.

Another in-form horse included in nominations is the Gai Waterhouse-trained Hallowell Belle who will run in the Gosford Guineas this weekend before Waterhouse makes a decision on Adelaide.

The ever-improving filly backed up placings at Group 2 level and a win in the Listed Darby Munro Stakes when finishing third in the Group 1 TJ Smith Stakes at Randwick last weekend.

There are four New Zealand horses nominated for the race otherwise known as the Sportingbet Classic, with Wealth Princess the most highly rated.

The last time the six-year-old ran on Australian soil was in the 2012 Brisbane winter carnival where she won the Group 3 Park Stakes and finished second in the Group 1 Winter Stakes.

The two Adelaide races serve as a solid preparation before Black Caviar heads overseas to contest the Diamond Jubilee at Royal Ascot and Moody is confident he has made the right call.

“Adelaide is the right option. Two short trips on the truck to get there and she’ll come straight home after the first one,” Moody said.

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

With regular jockey Luke Nolen in the saddle, the superstar mare underwent a jump out yesterday and Moody was happy with how she handled the 800 metre workout.

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

“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.”
