We’re Gonna Rock To Tackle Black Caviar Next Race – The Goodwood 2012

Former Melbourne Cup winning trainer Mark Kavanagh won’t run away from the challenge of taking on the best mare in the world declaring his stallion We’re Gonna Rock would race against Black Caviar in the 2012 The Goodwood in Adelaide next month.

Black Caviar

Black Caviar will be the horse to beat in the 2012 The Goodwood in Adelaide next month

Last Saturday Fastnet Rock five-year-old We’re Gonna Rock scored their second win on the trot, and their fourth from a 12 start career to date, when beating home First Command and the fellow Kavanagh-trained Catapulted in the Group 3 RN Irwin Stakes (1100m) at Morphettville.

After the win Kavanagh named the $350,000 Group 1 The Goodwood (1200m) on May 12 as the major season aim for We’re Gonna Rock, but only if Black Caviar was not there.

News from premier Melbourne based horseman Peter Moody that the superlative sprinter Black Caviar would likely tackle both the Robert Sangster Stakes and The Goodwood in South Australia before heading overseas came this week.

In a change of mind from Kavanagh, however, the presence of the unbeaten queen in The Goodwood won’t in fact stop them from targeting the race with We’re Gonna Rock.

After speaking with the horse’s owners Kavanagh said that to race against the best in the business and be a part of history, Black Caviar looking for her 20th consecutive career triumph which would set a new Australasian record, was too monumental an experience to turn down.

“I’ve talked to the owners and I think they’ll just be happy to go against her because it’s going to be history,” Kavanagh said.

“At this stage we’ll still head that way.”
