The final field and barrier draw has been released for the Group 1 William Reid Stakes, which is due to run at Moonee Valley racecourse this Friday March 22, 2013.
Just six horses have accepted to line up against Black Caviar in the 2013 William Reid Stakes, with one of these horses being Luckygray.
Luckygray has won 12 of his 19 race starts and has earned more than $1.8 million in prize money so far.
The Bradbury’s Luck gelding will be second-up in the 2013 William Reid Stakes after competing in the Group 1 Newmarket Handicap lasts start.
Luckygray will be desperately looking to improve his form after finishing eighth in the Newmarket and failing to finish better than fourth in Melbourne.
While the majority of the field will most likely be in a race for second position, Black Caviar will look to extend her winning streak to 24 unbeaten runs in the 2013 William Reid Stakes.
The race is likely to be the last time the great mare runs in her home state of Victoria according to part owner Gary Wilkie.
“Get along and see her, I would say that his is probably her last race in Victoria,” Wilkie said.
Black Caviar is then likely to go on towards the Group 1 TJ Smith Stakes in Sydney before a possible run in Brisbane during the winter racing carnival.
