Black Caviar

Peter Moody is already planning Black Caviar's spring carnival campaign

Peter Moody only announced that Black Caviar would not continue her current preparation in favour of returning to the spelling paddock yesterday, but he has already pencilled in an upcoming spring campaign for the super mare.

Black Caviar was withdrawn from the Group 1 Doomben 10,000 next weekend after she failed to recover as well as hoped from her only other Brisbane run in the BTC Cup on May 14.

Co-owner Neil Werrett said the decision was made in order to give her the best possible chance of success in the spring.

”We just had a chat with Pete (Moody) and he thought it was the right time to go for a spell,” Mr Werrett said.

”There is nothing majorly wrong with her.

“It has been a long campaign and going to the paddock now will mean she will be there a couple of weeks earlier and have a good break.”

Mr Werrett believes that Black Caviar would have been quite capable of still running in the Doomben 10,000, but they felt that it was not the right option.

”She probably could have run in the 10,000 but then we would have risked flattening her for the spring,” Mr Werrett said.

”She has been so good to us and we are always going to respect her and look after her.”

Trainer Peter Moody said that he did not regret bringing Black Caviar all the way to Brisbane for just one run.

“No not at all, it’s all a part of the experience factor for her,” he said.

Moody is already looking towards a spring campaign for the champion sprinter.

“She’ll probably have 4-6 weeks (in the spelling paddock),” Moody said.

“She’ll be ready to go in September.”

Black Caviar is most likely to take the same path as last year, resuming in the Manikato Stakes before making her way to the Patinack Farm Classic which she won last year.

The Patinack Farm Classic will be the chance for the Victoria Racing Club (VRC) to make up for their missed opportunity to take full advantage of Black Caviar’s Lightning Stakes and Newmarket Handicap appearances.

“I reckon they missed the boat a little bit with the Lightning and the Newmarket,” Moody said.

The VRC are attempting to attract famed international sprinter Rocket Man to a showdown with Black Caviar this spring by increasing the race’s prize money to $1.2 million.

VRC chief executive Dale Monteith feels that a race featuring Black Caviar against some of the world’s greatest sprinters could attract a crowd of 100,000 for the first time in the Club’s history.

“We believe the increase in prize money for the Patinack Farm Classic and the bonus will result in the world’s best sprinters coming to Melbourne to take on Black Caviar,” Mr Monteith said.

Moody is on board for a clash of the greats should it eventuate.

“It’s a logical target, given she won the race last year, and the extra money makes it an even more logical target,” Moody said.

When asked whether an international campaign was currently on the cards for Black Caviar, Moody assured that it never had been.

“It’s never been on my radar, all I’ve said is that Hong Kong would be the first possible option,” he said.

“You’ve got races like the Orr and the Futurity and the Ryder and the Queen Of The Turf in the autumn next year.

“If she goes to Hong Kong, we probably lose the opportunity to run in those.

“Do we got to Hong Kong and forsake three or four Australian Group 1 races in the autumn next year?

“Or do we just stay at home and do the easy thing?

“There’s just so many options here and have a look at what she’s doing for Australian racing.

“I don’t think you’ll see the 20,000 that were at Doomben sit up late at night and watch her on tv on the other side of the world.”
