Black Caviar Sound After Win 24 – Wet Only Barrier to 2013 TJ Smith

Australia’s equine superstar Black Caviar has pulled up well from win number 24 in the William Reid Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley on Friday night and is ready to push on to the Group 1 2013 TJ Smith (1200m) at Randwick on April 13.

The world’s best horse cruised to a comfortable win in her final Melbourne start, at least of this preparation, and has done well over the past few days.

“Everything’s good, the chiropractor and the vet are ticked off,” trainer Peter Moody said.

While Sydney awaits the arrival of the super mare, Moody has made it known she will not be running if the often troublesome autumn weather delivers a wet track.

“No matter what happens, she won’t run on a wet track,” Moody said.

Black Caviar hasn’t raced in Sydney since the 2011 TJ Smith when she scored one of the best wins of her career to run down a gallant Hay List who held a big lead in the straight.

But as only champions can, Black Caviar rallied and flew past Hay List, quickly putting a gap on Australia’s second best sprinter to win by three lengths.

Many have been critical of the fields Black Caviar has beaten in recent times, particularly at Moonee Valley on Friday, but a stronger line up is expected to contest the TJ Smith.

A potential repeat of the 2011 quinella is on the cards with Hay List a likely starter.

Also confirmed for the TJ Smith is Queensland gelding Buffering who ran second behind Black Caviar in the 2011 Patinack Farm Classic and third to the the nation’s top sprinting pair in the 2012 Lightning Stakes.
