The final 1000 tickets for the Black Caviar show are expected to be snapped up today which will see a sell-out crowd of around 25,000 descend on Moonee Valley to watch the great mare score win number 24 in the Group 1 2013 William Reid Stakes (1200m).
There may be nothing of note running against her but that won’t matter as Victorians relish the opportunity to see the world’s best horse in the flesh.
It is possibly the six-year-old’s final start in Melbourne although trainer Peter Moody has flagged the possibility of her racing career continuing beyond her current campaign.
She’s at $1.04 to take her phenomenal unbeaten streak to 24 and equal the legendary Kingston Town with a 14th Group 1 win.
Moody has declared the queen of the turf a “good thing” tonight before she is likely to head to Sydney to continue her remarkable journey in next month’s TJ Smith.
“I think she’s going as good as she ever probably has throughout her career,” Moody said.
“She looks magical. She looks as well as she’s ever looked. She’ll go as well as she ever has, she’s in great physical shape.”
It’s hard to argue with Victoria’s premier trainer after Black Caviar returned in scintillating fashion last month to claim the Lightning Stakes by 2 1/2 lengths.
In doing so she broke the Flemington 1000m track record, clocking an incredible 55.42 seconds.
It will be Black Caviar’s seventh trip to Moonee Valley and her second to the William Reid after defeating Crystal Lily by two lengths in 2011.
Just six horses will take on the superstar including Perth Group 1 winner Luckygray, Queensland sprinter Spirit Of Boom and Black Caviar’s stablemate Karuta Queen.
