Black Caviar Nominated For Brisbane Gr1 Treble
Meanwhile unbeaten 4YO mare & the world's highest-rated horse Black Caviar (Bel Esprit-Helsinge, by Desert Sun) "will have her 1st Brisbane start on May 14 in the Gr1 BTC Cup" (where there have been 38 entries) & her "2nd appearance in the Gr1 Doomben 10,000 a fortnight later" (which has attracted 72 nominations) reported The Courier-Mail. Black Caviar is also "a surprise entry" for the Gr1 Stradbroke Handicap on June 11 (among 147 entries, also including Hay List), but trainer Peter Moody "stressed she has been nominated as a precaution only". Moody emphasised it was "highly unlikely Black Caviar would run in the 1400m handicap, but the early entry fee ensured he has all bases covered in case she was more fairly treated by the handicapper than he anticipates".
