Anyone for Caviar ?
may race for at least another year, and trainer Peter Moody predicts the six-year-old's unbeaten string of wins could stretch to 30.
Moody has said that Black Caviar is in the best shape of her career and probably only now has reached her full physical maturity.
Looking ahead to this weekends Black Caviar Lightning Stakes at Flemington Moody told
"She's done super and I'll be disappointed if she gets beat.You saw her at Caulfield, I don't think she has presented any better than that for a long time.
At the end of her last preparation she was cranky, swishing her tail and getting her head on the side. It was the Black Caviar of old (at Caulfield) back to win 17 or 18 and gave me a real positive to go back to the races with her.''
She is set to be joined by stablemates Moment Of Change and Golden Archer with a $1 million TAB bonus is on offer to the winner if they can go on and land the Sportingbet Oakleigh Plate and then the Lexus Newmarket Handicap.
Moody, however, doesn't expect them to trouble his stable star.
''I'm not kidding myself thinking they can trouble their stablemate but I expect them to run very well and be competitive,'' he added.
It will certainly be a race to tune into to savour the best flat racehorse on the planet at the moment.
