Black Caviar Forces 2013 BTC Cup Venue Change

Black Caviar’s star power has become so great, she has caused the Brisbane Racing Club to change the venue of their 2013 BTC Cup meeting in an effort to bring the super mare to Queensland.

One of the biggest meetings of the Brisbane Winter Carnival, the Group 1 BTC Cup (1200m) on May 11 has been moved from Doomben to the bigger Eagle Farm Racecourse.

While connections of the world’s best horse have hinted at a return trip to Royal Ascot rather than to Queensland, the BRC made the move to increase venue capacity should she head that in that direction.

“If she comes we want as many people as possible to be able to see it,” BRC Chairman Neville Bell said.

“She is a living legend of our time and we imagine the interest in seeing her race will be staggering.”

Black Caviar’s future won’t be known until after Saturday week when she shoots for win number 25 in the TJ Smith at Randwick.

The six-year-old has been to Brisbane once before, beating Hay List by two lengths to claim the BTC Cup in 2011.

The BTC Cup has been run at Doomben since its inception 40 years ago.

It is one of the premier events of the Brisbane Winter Carnival and always attracts a strong field.

Apart from Black Caviar, famous winners include Strawberry Road, Chief De Beers, General Nediym, Falvelon and Apache Cat.

Black Caviar may not be running this weekend but Golden Slipper Day is one of the biggest meetings of the year and great odds on all the action can be found at bookmaker.com.au.
