Importantly, Bel Sprinter pinged from the gates. His ability to start cleanly is key to his big-race chances this spring.

Jason Warren very happy with Bel Sprinter’s manners at trial. Resumes in 1000m race at MV Aug 25. Pronto highly unlikely for Golden Rose

Black Caviar, meantime, would return to business as usual as long as she came through her current spell all right, according to her owners, with the great mare likely to be set for an autumn campaign.

Last night, at a reception held on the 46th floor of a Collins Street tower, the Minister for Racing, Denis Napthine, paid tribute to the contribution Black Caviar had made to the sport and to the economy of the racing industry. The mare wasn’t in attendance but plenty of those who have been part of her epic journey over the past six years were.
