If Black Caviar races on she’ll be eligible for $A1.2m payday in Flemington’s Patinack Classic (Nov) & $A2m payday in Hong Kong Sprint (Dec)

BLACK Caviar’s time in quarantine finishes today and trainer Peter Moody has indicated a decision will be made regarding her racing career within a fortnight.

Australia’s favourite horse has spent the past month confined to a controlled environment. She will undergo several tests at Moody’s Caulfield stable over the next week before heading to the paddock for a well earned rest.

“She has travelled good, I’m very happy with her,” Moody said.

“I haven’t decided anything (about her future) and I won’t for the next fortnight.”

Managing part-owner Neil Werrett yesterday said he would love to see Black Caviar race on and have another crack at the Patinack Farm Classic at Flemington on the final day of the Melbourne Cup carnival but would not be disappointed if she had run her last race.

“I spoke with Peter (Moody) earlier (yesterday), he will look at her over the next few days and get advice from the chiropractor and vets to find out where she is at,” he said.

“The next couple of weeks will be interesting, whatever Peter and the team suggest will happen. From our point of view, we don’t want to race her on if there are any problems, she has done a fantastic job for everyone.

“I’d be happy if she went out on her last win being at Royal Ascot, it might not have been her prettiest but probably her best win.

“If she is fit enough we would love to race her on, we would love to go back and have another go at the Patinack (Farm Classic), that will be her aim in the spring.”
