Black Caviar Not Done Yet

Black Caviar
AUSSIE ace Black Caviar is expected to race on despite sustaining some soft tissue injuries during her heart-stopping victory in Saturday's Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot.

Trainer Peter Moody described his 22-time unbeaten mare as "very, very flat and the tiredest I have ever seen her" after examining his stable star on Sunday morning at her temporary base at Abington Place stables in Newmarket.

Black Caviar appeared to some onlookers not to be moving quite right in the winner's enclosure after holding off Moonlight Cloud by a head at Ascot.

Moody said: "I have had my vets and chiropractors take some precautionary x-rays of Black Caviar this morning. They have come back fine but she has some soft tissue damage. I think it is called the quadricep muscle where the main problem is and she is quite sore behind."

The problem for HK had been the stringent quarantine requirement of Australia. Something HK and Australia were at one point negotiating to get her o run there.
Whats the point in racing her in Australia. She has nothing left to prove. I could see Hong Kong or Japan for some large purses, but why not call it a perfect career.
I hope they take their time with her to make sure she is sound.
most connective tissue and collagen require 6 weeks minimum to repar and then there is the time required to get proper movement back in that tissue.
They are saying 3 months with no race.. that should be sufficient...
AmbitiousD. Just checked out and it is gone. Sorry for you. Agreed she needs to recover from her injuries.
Yep, HK is all but gone based on her website now. That would have been great to see. I would have loved to watch her race in person. The most important thing is that she recovers from her injuries in sound order
LS I would agree. It must be remembered that these trip to Hong Kong was posted BEFORE Ascot and was part of the possible venues the owners wanted to race her.
For her sake Buck I hope they give her time off, we have seen it to many times when the greed pushes these athletes back into the game to soon.
At the time the main concern was Australia's stringent quarantine.
If you look at her website, she was scheduled to go to Hong Kong. Not sure if the is still a go. At the Tim e. hars
Go ahead Moody pull a D.Wayne on her and run into the ground...any trainer should know until fully healed muscles strains/tears will over compensate and cause more injury. Lack of knowledge on the kinesiology or anatomy of the horse is very surprising as well. Must be totally based on luck with this guy.
