We’re Gonna Rock to Take On Black Caviar – The Goodwood 2012

Mark Kavanagh has confirmed early market second favourite We’re Gonna Rock will take on superstar Black Caviar this Saturday in the 2012 Goodwood at Morphetville.

Paying $15.00 (bookmaker.com.au) prior to final acceptances being made today, the son of Fastnet Rock will join fellow Kavanagh-trained horse Catapulted in the final field.

A winner of four of 13 starts, We’re Gonna Rock heads into the contest with the world’s best sprinter on the back of a sixth place finish in the DC Mackay Stakes but has won his two other starts this year.

Kavanagh said he had a a lack of options for both his sprinters, leaving him to tackle the overseas bound Black Caviar in the Group 1 1200 metre event.

“What do you do with those sorts of sprinters” he said.

“There’s not much left for them so they have to go around in a race like that on Saturday.”

As if the challenge wasn’t already difficult enough, We’re Gonna Rock has been allocated 56kg and Catapulted 56.5kg, just below the wonder mare who tops the weights at 57kg.

Leading trainer Peter Moody has confirmed Black Caviar is in good condition to chase her 21st straight victory after having a final hit-out at her Caulfield base.

If she does as expected and wins at Morphetville this Saturday, it will be a remarkable 11th Group 1 victory and take her enormous prize pool to more than $5.7 million.

It serves as the final lead-up event before she makes a trip overseas for the Diamond Jubilee at Royal Ascot and a sell-out crowd of 30,000 people are again expected to flock to Morphetville after she sold out the course two weeks ago for he record-breaking Robert Sangster Stakes win.

Black Caviar may not be much of a betting proposition this weekend but there is some top racing on, so head to bookmaker.com.au to back a winner.
