Black Caviar to miss Perth race

Black Caviar to miss Perth raceChampion sprinter Black Caviar will not race again this year with trainer Peter Moody deciding against a trip to Perth for the Winterbottom Stakes later this month.

MOODY told racing officials today he was not happy with how the mare pulled up after her win in the Patinack Farm Classic at Flemington on Saturday.

The unbeaten winner of 16 starts will now be rested with a view to an Australian autumn campaign ahead of a proposed trip to England for the Royal Ascot meeting in June.
