Caviar Owner Says "No Regrets" About Royal Ascot Trip
Meanwhile Black Caviar's managing part-owner Neil Werrett told English media yesterday that his team had "no regrets about the Royal Ascot trip, despite Black Caviar (Bel Esprit-Helsinge, by Desert Sun) performing below her best" reported The Daily Telegraph. Werrett declared: "It's been a whirlwind & I don't think anyone has regretted bringing the horse here (to England). We've met The Queen & the horse got a pat from The Queen; so if this was the end, she's ended on a high. I'm sure many owners would love to be living this dream of owning & winning at Ascot. Unfortunately, England or Europe didn't see the best of Black Caviar. At the same time, we're very thankful she won & she needs a bit of a rest now. She's a high-maintenance horse & we want to make sure she's well before she goes to race again. That's something we'll assess in 3 or 4 weeks time. At the moment it is too early. It is one day after the event & Peter (Moody) wants to get her home as soon as possible."
