Black Caviar Claims 12th Win in 2011 TJ Smith Stakes

April 12th, 2011

Black Caviar has taken her unbeaten win tally to 12 after her win in last Saturday’s TJ Smith Stakes at Randwick Racecourse on April 9, 2011.

The superstar four-year-old won the $1 million TJ Smith Stakes in her usual thrilling style, winning her fifth straight Group 1 by a phenomenal  two and three-quarter lengths.

Staking claim to her title of the world’s greatest racehorse, Black Caviar thrilled Sydney’s Randwick Racecourse in what was her first, and possibly only, Sydney appearance.

The Bel Esprit mare proved that she was more than capable of handling the Sydney way of going as she powered to the lead on Sydney’s clockwise track.

Hay List, who finished five lengths ahead of the rest of the field in second, provided Black Caviar fans with a bit of a scare, rounding the home turn a long way in front of the superstar.

Black Caviar soon gave Hay list a dose of her extraordinary speed and talent, blitzing past him down the home straight to take out the 2011 TJ Smith Stakes.

Trainer Peter Moody was very relieved that Black Caviar was able to assert her dominance in horse racing once again in Saturday’s race.

“She’s got that relaxed laid back mannerism about her and that’s why I’ve always had the feeling she’d run any trip you wanted,” Moody said.

“Luke (Nolen) gave her a backhander and probably for the first time he genuinely had to.”

Jockey Luke Nolen is thrilled to have the opportunity to align himself with such a champion racehorse.

“At the moment she’s a deserving people’s champion,” Nolen said.

“We’re privileged to have anything to do with her and I thank god every day.”

Pam Hawkes, who owns part of Black Caviar, summed up the overwhelming experience that she has been a part of.

“It’s a dream and as I’ve said before the dream came true,” Ms Hawkes said.

Black Caviar will now go to both the Group 1 BTC Cup on May 14, 2011 and the Group 1 Doomben 10,000 on May 28, 2011, for the Brisbane Winter Carnival.
