8 Male Rivals for Black Caviar In Gr1 Goodwood
Australian 2011 Horse-Of-The-Year/Champion Sprinter & unbeaten 5YO mare Black Caviar (Bel Esprit-Helsinge, by Desert Sun) will have 8 male rivals as she chases her 21st successive victory by carrying the 57kg top-weight in Saturday's $500,000 Gr1 Goodwood (1200m) at Morphettville in Adelaide: her final Australian start before departing for next month's Royal Ascot carnival in England, where she'll contest the Gr1 Diamond Jubilee Stakes (6 furlongs) on June 23. At her previous start, Black Caviar (who was named World Champion Sprinter for the 2nd successive year in the 2011 World Thoroughbred Rankings) notched her 10th Gr1 triumph with victory in the $400,000 weight-for-age Gr1 Robert Sangster Stakes (1200m) at Morphettville on April 28.
