Flemington Buzzing for Return of the Queen in 2013 Black Caviar Lightning

Expect to see plenty donning the salmon and black on Saturday as Flemington goes into Black Caviar overdrive for the return of Australia’s best horse in the Group 1 2013 Black Caviar Lightning (1200m).

A bumper crowd is expected to flock to the prestigious Melbourne racetrack for the champion’s first race since the Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot on June.

The Victorian Racing Club is going all out to ensure the Black Caviar experience is had to its fullest by on-course patrons.

Among the initiatives set up by the VRC is “Black Caviar Precinct” which will feature a walk of fame of all her 22 victories to date and a Black Caviar photo booth.

A Black Caviar-less Lightning Stakes Day is known to draw about 10,000 punters to Flemington but the VRC are expecting around 25,000 to pack in to watch the wonder mare.

“In addition to being able to witness the champion in action, the Club is planning a range of exciting entertainment experiences to celebrate the day and ensure it is memorable; it will be a day not to be missed,” VRC CEO David Courtney said.

It is not expected to matter that just seven horses will line up to take on the equine superstar, with her aura scaring off most of the nation’s top sprinters.

Among her top rivals are stablemates Moment Of Change and Golden Archer with others to contest the race including Clarry Conners-trained mare Satin Shoes, three-year-old Shamexpress and Anthony Freedman-trained gelding First Command.

Black Caviar is expected to easily win her third straight Lightning and in doing so take her remarkable record to 23 unbeaten starts and 13 Group 1 victories.
