Field of 13 declared for Black Caviar Lightning

  • Three 3YOs taking on the older horses
Chautauqua defeats Terravista (r) and Japonisme (ctr) in the 2016 Black Caviar Lightning

The final field and barrier draw has been declared for Saturday's Group 1 Black Caviar Lightning (1000m) with 13 sprinters set to scorch the Flemington turf.

Last year’s runner-up, Terravista, will be aiming to go one better in the absence of Chautauqua while extending his brilliant first-up record of five wins and three placings from eight attempts.

Terravista’s regular rider, Hugh Bowman, has opted to go with up-and-comer Speith who is also resuming from a spell following his fast-finishing runner-up placing behind Malaguerra in the Darley Classic (1200m). 

In fact, 11 of the 13 combatants are first-up from a spell, and that may give Flamberge and Faatinah an edge over the concluding stages seeing they both have a run under their belts this campaign.

Outstanding three-year-olds Flying Artie and Star Turn are sure to test the older horses and have drawn toward the inside in gates 4 and 2 respectively.
