Australia: Black Caviar earns Breeders' Cup berth


Black Caviar, the top-rated horse in the world according to the World Thoroughbred Rankings, earned an automatic berth in the 2011 Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint by virtue of her 2 3/4-length win Saturday in the Group 1 Darley T.J. Smith Stakes at Royal Randwick Racecourse in Australia.

Unlike in past years, winners of 2011 Breeders’ Cup Challenge races such as the T.J. Smith will have their entry fees into Breeders’ Cup races waived. Race winners outside North America also will be provided with a $20,000 travel allowance.
