Black Caviar to make first public racecourse appearance Feb. 2
Black Caviar will make her first public appearance since her victory in the Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot last June at her home track, Caulfield, on Feb. 2.
The Melbourne Racing Club (MRC), in conjunction with connections of the world’s greatest race mare and sprinter, confirmed Jan. 17 that Black Caviar will gallop in between races at the Club’s National Jockeys’ Trust race day.
MRC Chief Executive, Alasdair Robertson, expressed his delight at the prospect of welcoming Caulfield’s first lady back to the track for her final campaign, at her home course.
“We are so pleased to give the public of Melbourne the opportunity to come and see Black Caviar as she prepares to embark upon her final campaign,” Mr Robertson said.
“Caulfield has been Black Caviar’s home for four years, and was the scene of her first black type win. It is most fitting that she be welcomed back to the turf from her memorable victory at Ascot, at Caulfield.”
