Champion mare Black Caviar will come out of quarantine today and a decision of her racing future is expected to be made within the next two weeks.
The rising six-year-old has returned well from her Royal Ascot adventure where she received the biggest the scare of her illustrious career when only narrowly winning the Diamond Jubilee Stakes.
Trainer Peter Moody was happy with her condition but refused to make any hasty decisions regarding her future.
Black Caviar will undergo checks from a vet and chiropractor over the next few days and the leading Victorian-based trainer said a decision would be made after careful evaluation.
But part-owner Neil Werrett has expressed a strong desire to see the unbeaten superstar race again and has touted the Patinack Farm Classic on November 10 as a possible option.
Despite the eagerness of the owners to see the rising six-year-old start in a 23rd race, Werrett said they would follow the advice of Moody and his team of experts.
“From our point of view, we don’t want to race her on if there are any problems, she has done a fantastic job for everyone,” he said.
If the daughter of Bel Esprit does go on to compete in this year’s Patinack Farm Classic on the final day of the Melbourne Cup Carnival, she will be chasing a third consecutive victory in the event.
In 2010 the all-conquering mare produced an four-length victory ahead of Star Witness and last year beat Queensland sprint Buffering by a dominant three lengths.
If Black Caviar does not race again she will finish her career with an incredible record of 22 unbeaten victories, including 11 at Group 1 level and a prize pool of more than $6 million.
The spring is fast approaching and bookmaker.com.au now has early markets available on some of the major carnival events.
