Black Caviar Could Race Beyond 2013 Autumn Carnival

Peter Moody has given Black Caviar fans hope that the all-conquering queen of racing could continue her career beyond her current campaign.

Speaking to a large group of media that only the super mare can attract in the lead-up to her next start in the 2013 William Reid Stakes (1200m), Moody suggested post-autumn retirement is no certainty.

“I think she’s going as good as ever…maybe there is another season in her,” Moody said.

“She’s been well looked after, well-managed, patiently guided by her owners.”

Moody pointed to the fact the six-year-old is still lightly raced, drawing comparisons with great mares Sunline and Makybe Diva who both started more than 35 times.

Australia’s first lady of the turf will be stepping out for just her 24th start this weekend for which she is currently a $1.04 favourite.

Black Caviar put the finishing touches on her William Reid build-up on Tuesday morning under the watchful eye of Moody and she duly ticked all the right boxes.

“I was very pleased with her wind and her action,” Moody said.

“She worked lovely, a soft half-mile and quickened up the running.”

Moody has stated she as at the top of the game and she has certainly shown that so far.

The grand sprinter came back with a bang last month to break the Flemington 1000m track record when giving her rivals a racing lesson in the Lightning Stakes.

Just six horses will take on the champ at Moonee Valley on Friday night, with Perth star Luckygray the second favourite at $21 ahead of big Queensland sprinter Spirit Of Boom ($26).
