Trainer Peter Moody has implored Black Caviar fans to head to Flemington for the Black Caviar Lightning (1000m) on Saturday, warning that it could be her last race.
Moody has always taken a cautious approach with the six-year-old and has again stated there is no guarantee she will race on after her third attempt at the Lightning this weekend.
”If you haven’t seen her, get your bum off the chair and have a look,” Moody told Racing Victoria on Thursday.
”There is a possibility that this could be her last run, although we have probably approached her last five or six runs like that.”
Everything in the build-up suggests that those members of the public who make the effort to be trackside will be treated to the Black Caviar of old.
The champion has passed every test asked of her since returning from the UK where she was seen winning the Diamond Jubilee Stakes in June.
After a lengthy spell in the paddock, Camp Caviar have declared she is back and evidence of that was seen last Saturday week when Caulfield patrons were treated to an exhibition gallop from the wonder mare.
At her usual short price of $1.05 for this weekend, Moody believes it is good for sport as a whole to have a positive event set to attract national attention.
”Sport in general has been copping a good kicking,” he said.
“It will be nice to see some positive good news stories and that is what this filly is all about.”
A crowd of around 25,000 is expected to attend Black Caviar Lightning Day where the world’s best sprinter will take on seven rivals as she attempts to increase her unbeaten streak to 23.
