Speedy Super Too Takes on Redzel in Black Caviar Lightning 2018

Jockey Stephen Baster knows the challenge is tough against super sprinter Redzel but the hoop also knows he is on one speedy mare jumping aboard Super Too in the 2018 Black Caviar Lightning.

Ten sprinters make-up the field for this year’s Group 1 $750,000 Black Caviar Lightning Stakes (1000m) including the returning The Everest champion Redzel.

Team Snowden’s last start Darley Classic winner is odds-on in Black Caviar Lightning betting at Ladbrokes.com.au to salute first-up at a track he is undefeated at on the back of two very impressive trials.

Out to try and finish in the money behind Redzel on Saturday is the Marc Conners-trained Hinchinbrook mare Super Too.

The mares have more than held their own in the race including the three-peat by Black Caviar (2011-13) who the weight-for-age sprint is now named after, and the subsequent 2014 win by Snitzerland.

Four-year-old Super Too has had two Flemington runs to date, including a second to Spright back in November of 2016 in the Group 3 Red Roses (1100m).

“She’s had a couple of straight runs and she got lost in one of them [fourth in Listed Cap D’Antibes Stakes in 2016] and the other she drew the wrong side,” Baster told Racing Victoria.

She has subsequently won two short-distance races at Randwick and Moonee Valley respectively last season, which led to her last start second behind Snitty Kitty in the Group 2 Caulfield Sprint (1000m) on October 21.

Leading-up to her big Group 1 test first-up, the mare’s maiden elite level assignment, Super Too has trialled twice at Warwick Farm for back-to-bac winning hit-outs.

The latest on February 1 saw Baster guide her to a cruisy two length victory over I Am Excited (800m) and he is now looking forward to the Black Caviar Lightning on Saturday.

“She’s definitely very fast,” Baster said.

“That is her asset. She’s just really quick and we hope to be able to get running and hold on.

“I think it’s been a long-term plan to run her in that race [the Lightning Stakes].

“She’s obviously got to improve to be up with them, but I couldn’t be happier with the trial.”

The earlier trial from Super Too had her beating Golden Slipper winner She Will Reign over the same track (Warwick Farm) and distance (800m) with Winona Costin in the saddle.

The mare was a $25,000 bargain buy for Conners and with a current record of five wins and three minor placings from a dozen starts, has already amassed over $280,000 in prize money.

She only needs to finish top eight in the Black Caviar Lightning results to pick up another cheque, the winner taking out $450,000.

To back Super Too for a top three run on Saturday at the right Black Caviar Lightning odds, head to Ladbrokes.com.au now.
