Black Caviar Draws Barrier 15 For Diamond Jubilee Stakes
Australia’s golden girl of racing, Black Caviar, has drawn the widest barrier for the Group 1 Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot this Saturday.
The six-year-old mare is said to have exceled ahead of her English debut, in which she will attempt to prove her ability to the rest of the world.
Prior to this weekend’s race, Black Caviar has won all 21 of her race starts back home in Australia.
The Diamond Jubilee Stakes will be the first time the Bel Esprit mare has run outside her own country.
Trainer Peter Moody does not seem concerned with the outside draw of 15 for the race, particularly since it is run up the Royal Ascot straight.
”I’ve been watching the straight races closely this week and they seem to be winning from everywhere,” Moody said.
”I don’t think it really matters where she draws. She’s got the tactical speed to put herself in the right spot.”
Black Caviar, who is constantly compared to England’s very own champion Frankel, is not expected to win with the same dominance he demonstrated in the Queen Anne Stakes early this week.
Frankel, who is rated the best horse in the world, posted an 11 length winning margin in the race as he claimed his 11th unbeaten win.
However, in order to avoid injury, Moody is not wanting to exert Black Caviar more than necessary to win her first overseas start.
“I’d love nothing more than to see her come out and win by 10 or 11 lengths,” Moody said.
”But with this mare, it is always about looking her and thinking about her next race.”
