The Racing Post says the Breeders' Cup has made overtures to Black Caviar's connections, expressing an interest in having the undefeated Australian sprinter make the journey to California this fall for the 2012 event at Santa Anita.  Trainer Peter Moody has made no indication he's planning to come to the U.S., following Black Caviar's first overseas journey to Europe this summer, but Breeders' Cup communications director Jim Gluckson says the BC is hopeful.

“We are always looking to expand the international reach of the event and having Black Caviar run here would be a tremendous thrill for our fans in the US,” he said.  “Her races have been followed closely over here, especially on social media, and the fact that she is an undefeated female like Zenyatta would certainly bring a lot of interest to our event.”

Should her connections choose to come, the BC Mile or Turf Sprint would be the most likely targets for the daughter of Bel Esprit.
