The elegant winning Thoroughbred mare, Black Caviar, is making superb strides to get back into her racing form. She surprised many at Sandown Race Course when she stepped unto the track and turned in one of her amazing runs. Of course, word got out that Black Caviar was galloping in a jump-out and fans began gathering quickly.
Black Caviar is trained by Peter Moody. With her long-time riding partner, jockey Luke Nolen aboard, Moody had Black Caviar break from the far outside with some rival horses. She took over the field and showed the others her heels and backside as she tore ahead by a few lengths to hit the wire first. In true Black Caviar fashion, she dominated the rest of the horses throughout the stretch run.
"She felt pretty good to me," Nolen said. "She probably needs one more serious gallop and that's all. She's pretty close."
This is her first publish showing since last June when she narrowly won the Diamond Jubilee Stakes.
Grinning and slapping everyone on the back, one lucky onlooker remarked with joy, “When that horse runs, she sizzles. This horse is something else!”
Moody is preparing to run the mare in the Black Caviar Lightning Stakes. That race is coming up February 16 at Flemington.
Moody said simply of Black Caviar,
It was just a soft half-mile jump-out and I'm very happy with her. It was a great opportunity to have a little trip away on a great surface.
One thing is for sure. Black Caviar’s countless fans will be watching and wishing this public favorite a safe trip to the finish line.
