Black Caviar suffers muscle tears in Diamond Jubilee, expected to race again
Undefeated mare Black Caviar was diagnosed with two muscle tears and severe bruising to her hindquarters by veterinarians Sunday morning.
The veterinarians told trainer Peter Moody “she definitely would’ve felt it during her run.”
The physical issues could explain why she was unable to produce her customary acceleration during the race.
“She’s entering quarantine today, we’re sending her home, but we’ll be able to have the injuries treated whilst she’s in quarantine,” Moody said.
Moody added: “She’ll now spend four weeks in quarantine and then when we get her home we will give her three months off and get her ready for the Spring Carnival in Melbourne in November.”
