Black Caviar Remains on Track for 2013 Black Caviar Lightning

Australia’s darling of the turf Black Caviar ticked yet another box on her way to a return in the 2013 Black Caviar Lightning (1000m) when getting through an exhibition gallop at Caulfield unscathed on Saturday.

Black Caviar was impressive in her exhibition gallop at Caulfield on Saturday

Thousands flocked to the track to see the unbeaten superstar and she did enough to give every indication the public could be seeing the Black Caviar of old when she steps out at Flemington on February 16.

The six-year-old underwent a 1000m gallop and as usual was a picture of equine perfection when asked for an effort by Nolen at the 400m mark.

Trainer Peter Moody was pleased with her work but more importantly he saw what he needed to see, Black Caviar enjoying performing in front of a crowd.

“She loved it. It’s what I wanted to see,” Moody said.

“She’s happy and that’s as important as anything else with her.”

It was a further indication the champion has made a full recovery from the torn muscles suffered during her most recent win in the Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot in June.

Moody said Black Caviar is without any niggles or injuries and is the “best” she has been in a long time due to the lengthy layoff she had after her overseas journey.

Black Caviar is unrivalled as the world’s best sprinter and it would take a brave individual to bet against her adding a 13th Group 1 and 23rd career win to her resume when she makes her race-day return.

Moody has always said the six-year-old is a race-by-race proposition but it is likely she will head to Sydney for the Autumn Carnival if all goes to plan in the Lightning.
