Black Caviar the Best in Asia

Black Caviar the Best in Asia

Yet another accolade has been claimed by Australia’s best racehorse Black Caviar with the super mare topping the Asian Racing Federation Rankings for 2012.

Black Caviar

Black Caviar tops the Asian Racing Federation ratings for 2012

The undisputed world’s best sprinter has a rating of 130, three points clear of Japanese star Orvere.

There is a strong Australian presence in the rankings with eight gallopers rated at 120 or higher.

The next best is Hay List (125) who has long been a bridesmaid to Black Caviar and sits in fourth position in the rankings.

Other Australian-trained horses high in the rankings include Atlantic Jewel (122), More Joyous (122), Sepoy (122), All Too Hard (121) and Foxwedge (121).

Also highly rated is New Zealand Cox Plate winner Ocean Park (122) and French Melbourne Cup winners Dunaden and American (120).

The achievement comes less than two weeks before Black Caviar is to make her much-anticipated return to the track in the 2013 Black Caviar Lightning (1000m) at Flemington on February 16.

Australia’s sprinting queen gave every indication she is ready to return at her best after a strong public hit-out at Caulfield on Saturday.

”She’s good. Really enjoyed her trip away, did everything we wanted and hasn’t miss a beat since…we’re still on track for the Lightning,” trainer Peter Moody said.

Also due to make a comeback this autumn is Hay List who could run first-up in the Group 2 2013 Challenge Stakes (1100m) at Warwick Farm.

Hay List had an exhibition gallop at Wyong last week, to much less fanfare than Black Caviar, and trainer John McNair is hopeful he can make it to the starting line in the Challenge.

“If he’s ready for the Challenge, that’s where we’d like to run him,” McNair said.

The Gosford trainer has ruled out any chance of a title defence in the Newmarket Handicap.
