Black Caviar On Song For Schweppes Stakes 2011 Start

October 5th, 2011

The Group 2 Schweppes Stakes is due to take place at Moonee Valley Racecourse on Saturday October 22, 2011.

Black Caviar is set to have her second start of the spring in the race, which will likely see her attempt to win her 15th unbeaten start of her horse racing career.

The five-year-old mare is due to have her first run of the preparation this Saturday October 8, 2011, in the Group 2 Schillaci Stakes at Caulfield.

Peter Moody’s racing manager Jeff O’Conner is hopeful that there will be a better line-up for the 2011 Schweppes Stakes after no big name horses chose to accept for the Schillaci Stakes.

“Obviously they are handy horses up against her on Saturday but is a shame they can’t get a name horse there to give her bit more competition,” O’Connor said.

The 2011 Schweppes Stakes will be run over a distance of 1,200 metres and under weight-for-age conditions.

Worth $300,000 in prize money, the 2011 Schweppes Stakes will take place as part of Cox Plate Day on the same program as the Group 1 Cox Plate, Group 2 Moonee Valley Cup, Group 2 Crystal Mile, Group 2 AAMI Vase, Group 3 Inglis Mile and Group 3 Red Anchor Stakes.
