Black Caviar to Be Entered for 2013 Newmarket Handicap

When nominations for the 2013 Newmarket Handicap (1200m) are released tomorrow, expect to see the special name of Black Caviar among them.

Black Caviar

Black Caviar will be nominated for the Newmarket Handicap

Trainer Peter Moody has indicated the wonder mare will be entered for the nation’s biggest handicap sprint and whether she makes it to the starting line is likely to be determined by the weight she is allocated.

The world’s best sprinter has won the race before, breaking the weight-carrying record for mares when lugging 58kg to victory in 2011.

Black Caviar was also nominated last year but didn’t line up after receiving 61.5kg. On face value the possibility of her contesting the feature sprint this year is unlikely, especially given there is a chance that weight could increase.

Since last year’s Newmarket weight allocations Black Caviar has won both the Group 1 Robert Sangster Stakes and the Goodwood in Adelaide and also took out the Group 1 Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot.

Nominations close at noon tomorrow (AEDT) and will also include fellow star sprinter Hay List who carried 58.5kg to win the Newmarket last year.

Both of the nation’s top sprinters are reportedly showing positive signs and are expected to make trouble-free returns to the racetrack.

Black Caviar is being aimed to run first-up in the 2013 Black Caviar Lightning (1200m) on February 16 and will be given her first public hit-out in an exhibition gallop at Caulfield on February 2.

Trainer Peter Moody has been pleased with her progress and is confident she can come back at her best this autumn.

However he has repeatedly stated that no risks will be taken with the queen of the turf and will not hesitate to retire her if there are any signs she is not right.
