TRAINER Peter Moody admitted he “was lost for words” after Black Caviar extended her unbeaten record to 23 in a race named in her honour at Flemington.
The brilliant Australian sprinter broke the track record with an exceptional comeback performance in the Group One Black Caviar Lightning Stakes.
It was her first run since she claimed a dramatic and narrow victory in the Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot in June. Although the great mare’s racing career had been in the balance following her exertions in England, Black Caviar made a seamless return to the track by defeating Moment Of Change by two and a half lengths.
Moody said: “I am proud to have her back. I am just so proud of her and my team. To come back and do that and run a record, I’m lost for words.”
