It seems only a miracle can prevent champion mare Black Caviar recording a 21st straight victory when she lines up in a nine-horse 2012 Goodwood field at Morphetville this Saturday.
A sell-out crowd of 30,000 will flock to the Adelaide track to see the world’s best sprinter in her final hit-out before she heads overseas to tackle the Diamond Jubilee at Royal Ascot.
They are in for a terrific show as the world’s best sprinter attempts to achieve an 11th Group 1 victory.
In her 20 career starts not once has she looked like getting beaten, in fact, only on one occasion has another horse come within a length of the unbeaten daughter of Bel Esprit.
That came way back in September 2009 when she won by 0.8 of a length after blundering the start in the Group 2 Danehill Stakes and since then she has been a picture of equine perfection.
No matter who has been put against Black Caviar, the star has been far too good, just ask trainer of Hay List John McNair who has seen his classy sprinter run a long way back in second on four occasions to the wonder mare.
So good is she that in recent times many of her rivals have been scared off as is this the case this weekend when not one elite level winner will line up against the star five-year-old.
As per usual she will start as odds-on favoure when she races this weekend, currently paying $1.04 at bookmaker.com.au.
