No 2013 Newmarket Handicap for Black Caviar – William Reid Next Race

Black Caviar trainer Peter Moody has ended speculation about where the champion’s next race will be by ruling out a start in the Group 1 2013 Newmarket Handicap (1200m).

It means the next time the queen of the turf is likely to be seen strutting her stuff is in the Group 1 2013 William Reid Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley on March 22.

The six-year-old has pulled up well following her scintillating Lightning Stakes win on Saturday but Moody said there was no need to test her under a likely 61.5kg impost in the Newmarket.

“There’ll be no ‘will-she-won’t -she’. She’s not an acceptor,” Moody said.

Instead she will continue down the weight-for-age path where she is seemingly unbeatable and will be gunning for a 24th straight win when she contests the William Reid Stakes.

It will be her second tilt at the top tier Moonee Valley sprint, having taken out the 2011 edition by two lengths.

The all-conquering mare is definitely no stranger to the tight-turning Moonee Valley track, scoring six of her 23 career wins at the venue.

Moody said Black Caviar had come through her first-up victory with flying colours, satisfying team vets that she is ready to press on for more success.

“She had a saddle on and a canter at Caulfield this morning,” Moody said.

The winner of 13 Group 1 races remains a race-by-race proposition but her team, and her form on Saturday, indicate she will be given a desired farewell tour.

After the William Reid Stakes she is likely to head to the 2013 Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival and provided all goes well, a trip to Brisbane for the Winter Carnival could also be on the cards.

The autumn action continues at Caulfield this weekend with a bumper card featuring the Blue Diamond and the Oakleigh Plate and the best place to back a winner is
