Black Caviar Dominates Newmarket Handicap 2013 Betting

Despite being a doubtful starter in the 2013 Newmarket Handicap this Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival, Australia’s turf darling Black Caviarhas opened short priced favourite in the futures markets for the million dollar clash.

Black Caviar

Black Caviar may be an unlikely runner but she's still the early 2013 Newmarket Handicap favourite

Sixty-five gallopers were nominated for this year’s edition of the $1 million Group 1 Lexus Newmarket Handicap (1200m), set to run at Flemington Racecourse on Saturday March 9, the headliner of which is Peter Moody’s undefeated queen Black Caviar.

Two years ago the daughter of Bel Esprit set a then metric weight carrying record of 58kg when she smashed her competition including the ill-fated Crystal Lily by a minimum three lengths to win the 2011 Newmarket.

With a record that stands at 22 wins from as many starts for over $6 million in prize money to date, the world’s highest-rated mare is set for a swansong race season this autumn.

While nominated for the Newmarket she is unlikely to contest the handicap event as she will be too heavily weighted.

The bookies are taking zero chances with the mare set to resume in the Lighting Stakes however with Black Caviar dominating the newly released Newmarket Handicap odds at a quote of $2.80.

Following closely in the markets are then two other very exciting sprinters with Pierro and Barakey paying $5 and $6 respectively to win the Newmarket through

Lonhro colt Pierro from the Sydney stables of Gai Waterhouse was the spruik two-year-old of last season winning the 2YO triple crown during the autumn, including of course the coveted Golden Slipper.

The now three-year-old is set for a big autumn again with a number of Group 1 targets including the Newmarket following a smart spring that was highlighted by their second in the Caulfield Guineas and last start third to Ocean Park in the Cox Plate.

Barakey meanwhile is, like Black Caviar, undefeated to date boasting a sensational 11 from 11 race record.

Jim Taylor’s visiting Perth superstar became a Group 1 winner last time out in late November with a good win in the Winterbottom Stakes back home earning them an interstate campaign this season.

Other top fancies in the Newmarket Handicap 2013 odds then include:

  • Moment Of Change ($10) – Peter Moody’s consistent Barley A Moment four-year-old finally started to live up to their potential last time out in September winning the Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes
  • Hay List ($11) – The defending champ but an unlikely runner with a likely 59.5kg weight allocation too much to carry, arguably the country’s second best sprinter but hasn’t run since their second in the William Reid Stakes in March last year due to injury and a life threating infection
  • Luckygray ($12) – The second WA star in the Newmarket mix this year, Gino Poletti’s Bradbury’s Luck gelding is a dual Group 1 champ having last won the Kingston Town Classic back home in December, has experience in Victoria but will need to improve on their efforts here last time
  • Ortensia ($13) – Well travelled seven-year-old Testa Rossa mare from the Scone stables of Paul Messara, international Group 1 winner seeking another elite level or two before heading to the breeding barn

A little further down the markets punters can then find the likes of the lightly-raced Robert Smerdon-trained Dubawi filly Shamal Wind ($15) who has own both of their starts so far, Danny O’Brien’s Standish Handicap winner Adamantium ($16), Waterhouse’s promising Choisir colt Proisir ($17) and Cranbourne galloper Unpretentious ($17).
