The Victoria Racing Club (VRC) on Tuesday announced that Black Caviar will return to Flemington this Saturday to celebrate the race day named in her honour.
Prior to the Group 1 Black Caviar Lightning on Saturday, the mare will parade in the Flemington Mounting Yard, the scene of so many of her remarkable victories.
VRC Chairman Amanda Elliott said the Club was enormously grateful to connections for their generosity in sharing the champion mare with the public once again.
“Black Caviar transcended racing, she is a national treasure – a sporting hero who brought Australians together. I give huge thanks to her ownership group for recognising the importance of these champions to everyone and allowing racegoers at Flemington to see her again,” Mrs Elliott said.
“Black Caviar, The Great Horse Race Day is named in honour of this wonderful mare and celebrates all great horses past and present. It is simply magic that we will have her, one of the best ever, with us on Saturday.”
The feature race on Saturday is the $750,000 Group 1 Black Caviar Lightning (1000m) which Black Caviar won in 2011, 2012 and again in 2013 when breaking the Flemington 1000m track record.
