Black Caviar will tonight, if winning in the Lexus Newmarket Handicap at Flemington, take another giant step to being the greatest sprinter the world has ever seen. She has won all nine of her starts to date, however this Group 1 Handicap will probably represent her toughest test so far.
Trainer of one of the 11 in opposition Eagle Falls David Hayes says "We have an in-form horse going really well but we might be racing against an all-time great in Black Caviar. This is a handicap, it is a horse race so you never know but it is probably mission impossible. We have to beat the best sprinter in years. There are no obvious chinks in Black Caviar's armour but you don't scratch for one horse".
You will be able to catch the race on Attheraces tonight if you feel like watching a bit of Horse Racing history.
