Australia: Black Caviar sets course record in return to the races
The Australian sprinter Black Caviar keeps finding ways to amaze.
Stretching her unbeaten streak to 23 races, Black Caviar won her first start since June in Saturday’s Group 1 Black Caviar Lightning Stakes at Flemington Racecourse, running 1,000 meters, or about five furlongs, in course record time of 55.42 seconds.
Ridden by regular rider Luke Nolen, Black Caviar ($2.10 in American pools) was prominent from the start in the race over a straightaway. She was in command midway through the race, and cruised clear of her seven rivals to win by 2 1/2 lengths.
Black Caviar is trained by Peter Moody, who swept the first three positions with Moment of Change and Golden Archer.
A 7-year-old Australian-bred mare by Bel Esprit, Black Caviar has won 13 Group 1 races, and won the Lightning Stakes for the third consecutive year. This year’s running was the first named in her honor.
“It could be her best career performance, given the time she ran,” Moody told the Australian press.
Owned by a partnership, Black Caviar won the Group 1 Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot last June, her only start outside of Australia. Her next race could be the Group 1 William Reid Stakes over six furlongs at Moonee Valley on March 15.
Black Caviar was the subject of several mighty gambles in Australia, with bookmakers recording one bet of $515,000 at odds of 1-10.
Congratulations to Black Caviar and her connections. 5F-6F-7F it's apparent she is a sprint specialist , why would her connections change that? 7 yo mares would be retired to broodmare by now. So I am glad , as a fan, to see her continue running. Continued success to her and her connections. SR Vegas
good show,but would be gasping 1 mile or longer , over here longer-lolk-DS
If the Breeders Cup people were smart ( a giant leap of faith) the would halve the purses of all the 2 yr old races which are really NW2X and make the 6 1/2 F TURF SPRINT a $ 5 million dollar race if and only if BLACK CAVIER starts -- now that would make for something really special.
She does not breathe the same air as the rest of us!
