Black Caviar Returns To Moody Caulfield Stable
Unbeaten 6-time Gr1-winning 4YO mare Black Caviar (Bel Esprit-Helsinge, by Desert Sun) arrived back at trainer Peter Moody’s Caulfield stable yesterday to prepare for the Melbourne Spring carnival. Moody confirmed: “She travelled down from Queensland (where she had been spelling & then began light work) & did the overnight at Dubbo, arriving back at the stables at Caulfield this afternoon. It’s been great anticipation the last 9 or 10 weeks that’s she’s been away. . . . She has put on a good deal of weight. She’s quite a big girl & even bigger at the moment, but where you’d want her at this stage of her preparation. She’s had about 3 weeks under the saddle & we are about 10 weeks away from what could possibly be her 1st-up run in the Schillaci” (Gr2 Schillaci Stakes over 1000m at Caulfield on October 8).
