Black Caviar Set for Diamond Jubilee Stakes 2012

Peter Moody’s stable darling Black Caviar is on track for her international debut having landed in England ahead of Saturday week’s 2012 Diamond Jubilee Stakes.

Black Caviar will make her international debut in Saturday week's Diamond Jubilee Stakes

Arriving over the weekend the undefeated sprint queen lost just 10 kilograms in the 30 hour haul from Melbourne to Newmarket, a trip that would see most horses loose on average about 25 kilograms.

A winner of all 21 of her career starts to date the brilliant daughter of Bel Esprit will look to extend her historical winning streak to 22 on the trot on June 23 when she takes on an international field in the £400,000 Group 1 Diamond Jubilee Stakes (1200m), at Ascot Racecourse.

Moody, fresh off a successful plunder on Stradbroke Handicap Day that included an upset win in the big one with Mid Summer Music, is thrilled with the way Black Caviar travelled and her light gallop on Sunday morning.

The stable’s assistant manager Tony Haydon confirmed the super mare was in excellent order and impressing ahead of her big test on the overseas arena.

“The trip could not have gone better as far as I’m concerned,” he said.

“She lost only about 10 kilograms, which is hardly worth mentioning.

“She’ll put that back on in a day or two.

“She drank up well, and ate up on the trip over, grazing most of the way.

“Nothing seemed to faze her.

“She settled in beautifully.”

Last seen winning The Goodwood at Morphettville on May 12, which was her 11th Group 1 turf triumph, Black Caviar has opened odds on favourite in the futures Diamond Jubliee Stakes odds at bookies around Australia.

Sitting at a quote of around $1.25 her closest rivals are deemed to be the likes of the James Fanshawe-trained Society Rock ($13), Group 1 winning Invincible Spirit filly Moonlight Cloud ($13) and fellow Aussie mare Ortensia who pays around $15.

Paul Messara’s dual Winterbottom Stakes winner Ortensia last raced in Hong Kong on March 31 winning the Group 1 Al Quoz Sprint (1000m).

The Testa Rossa six-year-old will next run in the King Stand Stakes on June 19 ahead of the Diamond Jubilee.

Fanshawe meanwhile, who prepares defending Diamond Jubilee Stakes winner Society Rock, believes that while the betting tells a different story Black Caviar is in fact beatable.

“Apparently Black Caviar is unbeatable,” he said.

“But Society Rock has been at his best at the Royal meeting for the last two years and he seems very well, so we’ll just hope that he’s in the same sort of form this year.

“Black Caviar has got tremendous pace, but we can’t make any plans or think about tactics until we get much closer to the race.

“We’ll need to see where we’re drawn and how the ground is on the day, but I’m sure there will be a few more besides us that will be turning up and ready to take her on.”
