Black Caviar Rival Rundown – 2013 William Reid Stakes

With her incredible aura once again scaring off the big names, Black Caviar faces just six horses in the Group 1 2013 William Reid Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley on Friday night.

While all of these horses are proven gallopers, they are hardly the standout sprinters of the nation.

Some runners in the field may leave some punters questioning who is that?

So, in the lead-up to likely win number 24 for the world’s best horse, we are here to bring to you a rundown on her rivals for this Friday night.

#1 Good Ba Ba $126

A Hong Kong superstar. Well, he was four years ago. The now Rick Hore-Lacy-trained gelding is still getting about at an incredible 11 years old! Won three Hong Kong Miles as part of seven Group 1 victories but those days are long gone. Heads into the race on the back of a ninth-place finish in the Group 3 Carlyon Cup.

#2 Luckygray $21

Perth grey who is more suited to middle distances races. A quality galloper who has won two Group 1s in Perth but is yet to taste victory in the east. Arrives off an eighth-place finish in the Newmarket where he struggled to sprint with the 58kg topweight.

#3 Spirit Of Boom $26

Consistent Queensland sprinter who has been nominated for a trip to Singapore for the KrisFlyer International Sprint. Produced the run of the race to finish third in the Oakleigh Plate last month but hasn’t won since January 2012.

#4 Linton $201

The rank outsider in the field. There’s no doubting the popular grey is a quality performer when conditions suit but that isn’t here. Has never won under 1400m. Running first-up.

#5 Fawkner $51

Lloyd Williams-owned gelding who has an excellent strike rate of eight wins from 15 starts but yet to race at under 1400m. Running first-up after finishing second in the Group 1 Emirates Stakes to finish a successful spring campaign.

#7  Karuta Queen $26

Speedy stablemate of Black Caviar who looks the likely leader. Starred as a two-year-old and was solid as a spring three-year-old but the jury’s still out after a lengthy layoff. Returned with a third-place finish in the Listed Bob Hoysted Handicap earlier this month after nearly 12 months out of the game.
