LONDON (AP) – The handlers of Black Caviar say “everything has gone to plan” in the lead up to Royal Ascot next week for the undefeated Australian mare.
The horse has been “eating and sleeping normally” ahead of the six-furlong Group One Diamond Jubilee Stakes race on June 23 outside London.
It will be Black Caviar’s first international race.
The 5-year-old mare, owned by a consortium of families and friends in Melbourne, is unbeaten in 21 starts.
Black Caviar broke an Australian record for consecutive wins that lasted nearly a century – Desert Gold won 19 consecutive races from 1915 to 1917 and Gloaming did it from 1919 to 1921.
