Black Caviar, the world’s undisputed queen of horse racing is bound to get back in action in 2013. It had been expected that the Australian thoroughbred would retire from the racing world after enduring a muscle tear in her hindquarters during her winning race at the Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Ascot last June.
This wonder horse from the Land Down Under has become an international sensation after 22 victorious races out of 22, garnering over $6.6 million. Black Caviar breathed in new life to horse racing with her profile growing as she joins races. With her well-maintained reputation, she even obtained a front page spot on the Australian Vogue’s December issue, kicking away famous personalities like Delta Goodrem and Elle Macpherson.
The future may have seemed uncertain for Black Caviar when she was diagnosed with a Grade 4 tear on her quadriceps muscle and also a Grade 2 tear of the sacroiliac.
Frankel and Black Caviar – Could this be a possible superhorse offspring?
The 6-yr-old mare was force to go through intense laser therapy every day for two weeks at Newmarket before she is set to fly back to Melbourne. She is taking an equine version of water aerobics to help hasten recovery alongside trainer Peter Moody observing closely on her progress.
Moody will discuss with Black Caviar’s owner regarding her return to the racetrack, while she is training at his stables in Caulfield. Black Caviar may return early in February next year at the Lightning Stakes, a race in which she has been victorious for the past two years. If Black Caviar is unable to participate in that race, she could star at the William Reid Stakes at Moonee Valley in March.
