Karuta Queen Confirmed to Take on Black Caviar – 2013 William Reid Stakes

Karuta Queen is a confirmed starter to take on her superstar stablemate Black Caviar in the Group 1 2013 William Reid Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley on Friday night.

Trainer Peter Moody had a plethora of options available this weekend for his recent stable addition but elected to chase a Group 1 second behind the great mare.

Karuta Queen has had just one start under the leading Victorian trainer, finishing third in the Listed Bob Hoysted Handicap.

Under former trainer Neville Layt the daughter of Not A Single Doubt won six of 15 starts including the Magic Millions Classic as a two-year-old.

In all her starts before joining Moody Karuta Queen was ridden by Tommy Berry who will jump back aboard on Friday.

The decision to run against the world’s best came on the back of an inspiring bit of trackwork and Moody is hoping she can repeat her 2011 Schillaci Stakes performance where she finished second to Black Caviar.

“Her work here the other morning was super,” Moody told Racing Victoria.

“If Black Caviar didn’t gallop here on Tuesday morning you would have been kicking up your heels about Karuta Queen’s work.”

Moody has not yet decided where the speedy mare will head to after this weekend and said he will look to learn from Berry who is thrilled to back aboard.

“Can’t wait to Reunite with my favourite girl Karuta Queen in the William Reid on Friday night thanks to @MoodyRacing and John Singleton,” Berry said on twitter.

Karuta Queen is one of six rivals for Black Caviar on Friday.

Joining her is powerful Queensland sprinter Spirit Of Boom, Perth star Luckygray, veteran Good Ba Ba, the Lloyd Williams-owned Fawkner and long-shot outsider Linton.

Black Caviar may be as short as ever this weekend but there’s great value to be found at Moonee Valley and Rosehill.
