Black Caviar has proved that she deserves the title of world’s best racehorse by claiming her 13th unbeaten victory in the Group 1 BTC Cup last Saturday May 14, 2011.
The four-year-old super mare stormed to a two length victory ahead of the talented Hay List, who himself beat third place runner, Buffering, by a giant 4.8 lengths.
Trainer Peter Moody said he knew shortly after the home turn that Black Caviar had her 13th win in the bag.
“Once she flattened out I knew she wouldn’t be beaten,” Moody said.
“It sends a tingle up your spine and she’s something to behold.”
Jockey Luke Nolen was once again impressed with Black Caviar’s lightning speed but feels like the best is still to come for the super mare.
“It was five weeks between runs for her and after I galloped her on Tuesday morning, I knew she would not be right at her best today,” Nolen said.
“Hay List had got away with a couple of cheap stages, so I just let the mare cruise up to be right with the first two on the turn.
“She needed that gallop and she’ll tighten up and improve again for the 10,000.”
Black Caviar is now due to finish up her preparation in the $600,000 Doomben 10,000 on May 28, 2011.
Moody was looking forward to giving Black Caviar another Queensland run but would assess how she pulled up before making his final decision.
“I’d love to be back here in two weeks,” Moody said.
“It’s tremendous for an old Queensland boy to come back here in front of this crowd but if there’s an element of doubt with her she won’t run in the 10,000.”
Black Caviar will attempt to equal Phar Lap’s record of 14 straight wins next start, a feat that would catapult her even further into the horse racing history books.
