Black Caviar has made her final public appearance before she takes on the $400,000 BTC Cup in her debut Brisbane Run this Saturday.

The four-year-old mare was the star of a parade dedicated solely to her organised by the Brisbane Racing Club this afternoon.

Trainer Peter Moody still cannot believe the amount of attention Black Caviar is attracting from people all over Australia.

“I think you could run a queue from here to Nudgee Beach with all the people wanting a pat or take a photo,” Moody said.

“We feel an obligation to racing to showcase her to the general public because she’s great for our sport.”

Moody said that they are well prepared for this Saturday’s clash with Hay List, and has employed a different riding style to deal with the shorter Doomben straight.

“I wouldn’t like to see him four in front at the furlong at Doomben, but I’ll leave that to (jockey Luke Nolen), he knows what she’s capable of,” Moody said.

“I don’t need to go through what happened at Randwick again, but the fact she was three in front at the line allayed our fears.

“I wouldn’t say she’s improved off that but she’s certainly held her form since then.

“She’s the star on Saturday, hopefully she will be on Sunday morning.”
