Some of Black Caviar’s 2013 William Reid Stakes Rivals Revealed

Acceptances don’t close until Monday, and Black Caviar is not yet among them, but a number of starters have been confirmed ahead of the super mare’s next likely appearance in the Group 1 2013 William Reid Stakes (1200m) next Friday.

Racing Victoria have revealed connections of Linton, Spirit Of Boom, Fontelina and She’s A Fox have already accepted the challenge while Luckygray and Good Ba Ba are also expected to line up.

Luckygray trainer Gino Poletti said earlier this week the Perth gelding will have a familiarisation gallop at Moonee Valley on Tuesday in order to prepare for his first race at the track.

Late entries for the $400,000 sprint closed today and the only addition was the Lloyd Williams-owned Fawkner, suggesting the sprinter-miler will also be among the acceptors.

The five-year-old gelding is yet to start this autumn after a spring campaign that saw him win three of four starts and run a narrow second in the Group 1 Emirates Stakes.

If Black Caviar does as expected and contests the William Reid Stakes, it will be her second shot at the Moonee Valley sprint.

The equine superstar took out the race in 2011 by two lengths ahead of Crystal Lily.

The Peter Moody-trained mare returned at her best when winning the Lightning Stakes by 2 1/2 lengths last month and has reportedly recovered well from the sensational victory.

While Black Caviar’s next start is still a week away, fellow super star sprinter Hay List is expected to attract plenty of attention for his return to the track in the Group 2 Challenge Stakes (1000m) at Warwick Farm on Saturday.

The seven-year-old will be racing for the first time since his runner-up finish in the William Reid last march.

The final confirmation about Hay List’s Challenge Stakes start will be made on Saturday morning following an inspection from Racing NSW vets.
