Golden Archer to Take on the Great Mare in 2013 Black Caviar Lightning

Peter Moody is charged with the task of preparing not one but two gallopers for the Group 1 2013 Black Caviar Lightning (1000m) at Flemington on February 16 with Golden Archer set to take on his champion stablemate Black Caviar.

Golden Archer is likely to run first-up in the Black Caviar Lightning

The four-year-old entire is coming off a consistent spring campaign and is expected to join the equine superstar first-up down the Flemington straight.

”He’s an entire and some black-type performance would enhance his future stud prospects, so it is likely he could take on his famous stablemate first-up in the Lightning,” Moody said.

Golden Archer has never taken on Australia’s queen of the turf but nearly accompanied her on her famous trip to Royal Ascot before injury intervened.

Moody had plans to take the stallion prospect abroad last year before an unfortunate incident where he put his leg through a fence.

The son of Rock Of Gibraltar returned to racing in the spring and showed no signs of the injury, winning twice and recording three runner-up finishes from seven trips to the track.

Highlight results included taking out the Listed Stakes and finishing second in the Group 3 Aurie’s Star Handicap and the Group 2 Schillaci Stakes.

While it would be foolish to think he could challenge Black Caviar at her best, Golden Archer has experienced plenty of success at Flemington and has won four times over the 1000-metre Lightning distance.

His overall record stands at eight wins from 17 starts and he has collected over $630,000 in prizemoney.

The Black Caviar Lightning is shaping up as a highly anticipated affair and the horse the race is named after is looking more likely by the day to take her place at the start line.

She successfully got through a jump-out at Sandown on Tuesday and will have a public gallop at Caulfield on February 2.
