The connections of Black Caviar said a trip to Royal Ascot for the undefeated mare hinges on their ability to book a date with Frankel while they are on the other side of the world.

In the aftermath of her 24th straight win in the Group 1 William Reid Stakes at Moonee Valley on Friday, co-owner Gary Wilkie told Racing Network that Black Caviar would likely conclude her career at Ascot first, and then visit Frankel.

“We're not going to Royal Ascot if we can't go to Frankel. That's the issue, not all the other bits and pieces. We have got a lot of decisions to make,” Wilkie said.

Trainer Peter Moody said that Black Caviar fans have been pushing for her return to Ascot, and that he thinks she is a good physical match with England's most famous first-year sire.

    That would be an awesome breeding-. I hope it happens. Anita Carter

    Awsome breeding, yes. However, in my opinion, Black Cavair has earned a year to be just a horse before being bred. Also, breeding great to great does not garuntee great results, as we know.

      As she will no doubt be returning to the southern hemisphere, I think she will be bred in the fall of this year… no year off.

    i read somewhere that taking their bloodlines into consideration that would not be the best pairing.

    They couldn’t refuse Black Caviar could they?? Nahhh.

    I don’t know what to think here. Last time she was at Ascot, Black Caviar won by the skin of her teeth although she was hurt and got a lousy ride IMO. Plus that is one horrendously long trip which she has made already. On the other hand, if Frankel is waiting for her…I just don’t know. Anyway, she’s as big a Superstar as he is so why can’t he come calling with apples and mints to Australia…
