Black Caviar Posts 20th Race Win In 2012 Robert Sangster Stakes

April 28th, 2012

Black Caviar has posted an historic 20th race win in today’s Group 1 Robert Sangster Stakes at Morphettville Racecourse today April 28, 2012.

The five-year-old super mare was a force to be reckoned with as she sped away from the pack in her with her usual dominating stride to win the 2012 Robert Sangster Stakes by four lengths.

Sistine Angel passed the post in second for trainer Andrew Noblet, while Power Princess ran home to place third.

Black Caviar has now won all 20 of her race starts and has earned more than $5.35 million in prize money.

The Bel Esprit mare is now expected to have one more Australian start in the Group 1 The Goodwood at Morphettville on May 12, 2012.

She will then travel to England to contest the Grade 1 Diamond Jubilee at Royal Ascot on June 23, 2012, ahead of another possible start in the July Cup on July 14, 2012.

Trainer Peter Moody was full of admiration for Black Caviar after the running of today’s 2012 Robert Sangster Stakes.

“It’s tremendous isn’t it?” Moody said.

“It’s great to have that behind us.

“She’s in great shape and it’s just fabulous to see the people here enjoying it.

“I don’t think we ever had too much concern.

“It’s unbelievable how she copes with it.

“She’s a remarkable horse.

“She’s very relaxed and she knows she’s something different.”

Owner Neil Werrett was full of relief after the race was run.

“I think everyone’s had a good day now and we can now relax,” Werrett said.

“I’ve been anxious for a full week.

“(Now) we’re just enjoying the moment.”

Jockey Luke Nolen was thrilled to be associated with Black Caviar and today’s 20th unbeaten race win in the 2012 Robert Sangster Stakes.

“It feels bloody awesome,” he said.

“There’s a lot of people here to see Black Caviar and she didn’t let anyone down.

“She’s unbelievable.

“She makes my job bloody easy.

“A lot of sprinters don’t always have these traits.”

Nolen has no concerns about taking the Bel Esprit mare to Royal Ascot in June for the Diamond Jubilee.

“It’s going to play right to her strengths,” he said.

“She’s a mare that appreciates the straight tracks.

“She’s the queen of the sprinters here so Ascot holds no fears.

“I’m sure she’ll cope with it fine.”
