    Australian Superstar to meet the Queen....

    Apparently, the Queen Is very excited.

    [moderator note]various sections plagiarised from http://www.news.com.au/sport/superra...-1226367323439 [/moderator note]

    I myself am hoping also to be there to see Black Caviar.

    Jockey Luke Nolen will arrive at Newmarket a week out from the 1200m Diamond Jubilee Stakes on June 23 to partner Black Caviar.

    British experts have declared the Diamond Jubilee will be a cakewalk for Black Caviar.


    Black Caviar effortlessly recorded her 21 st straight victory and, with a trip to Royal Ascot on the agenda, William Hill have priced her at 4-5 to take gold at the Royal meeting in June.

    THE most challenging aspect of Black Caviar's Royal Ascot raid is likely to be the journey Itself.

    She takes off from Tullamarine some time In the first week of June on a trip that will Include stops at Singapore and Sharjah In the United Arab Emirates.

    She will land at Heathrow after 23 hours In the air and up to six on two tarmacs and will be floated immediately from Heathrow to her base at Newmarket.

    With Peter Moody to join Black Caviar a week after she arrives, foreman Tony Haydn, vet Peter Angus and track rider Paddy Bell will accompany the mare.

    God speed girl.... I can't wait to see you.
    Gosh, I'm so excited.

    Looks like Black Caviar Is the first to wear a special compression suit for her 30 hour flight to London.

    Re: Australian Superstar to meet the Queen....

    I find William Hill's betting Interesting..... seems no bookie In their right mind Is going to take any chances here.

    Anti-Post Betting seems to be centered around not giving an outright price for Black Caviar In The Diamond Jubilee stakes on 23rd June

    Price for Black Caviar to win both her races here, the Diamond Jubilee Stakes and The July Cup are as low as 4/7 already.

    Even the price for Black Caviar and Frankel to win their respective races by 5 lengths or more, Is a measly 9/1

    It will be very Interesting to see how both open price wise on the day of their respective races.

    I should Imagine the bookies are taking many a double from punters already.

    Well, no surprises really on day one at Royal Ascot.

    Frankel remains unbeaten after taking his 11th win from 11 starts.

    I can not remember any race where any horse has moved to post at such short odds with such a high level of Group 1 competition. Frankel won at 1/10 by 8 lengths.

    BBC Sport - Royal Ascot: Frankel romps to 11th straight win on opening day

    The Queen was there and went to see him prior to the race but the big excitement Is around Saturday when we will see Black Caviar.

    Lovely pics of the Queen and Prince Phillip arriving.

    Re: Australian Superstar to meet the Queen....

    Since Frankel demolished his rivals on Tuesday in the Queen Anne, there has only been one race on punters and racing fans minds – the Diamond Jubilee Stakes, where Australian sensation Black Caviar puts her unbeaten record of 21 races on the line.
    [moderator note] following bit plagiarised from http://www.freebetshere.com/offers/r...stakes-betting [/moderator note]
    This equine heroine is one of the most famous athletes in her home nation and there are a reported 10,000 Australian fans making the journey from Down Under to Royal Ascot to witness her take on the best European sprinters for the first time in her career.
    She is arguably the most exciting foreign horse ever to race at Royal Ascot and it seems punters and bookmakers alike are expecting her to produce a similar type performance to Frankel on Tuesday, who won the Queen Anne Stakes by an astonishing 11 lengths.

    I've just taken 1/4 on Black Caviar... that's the best I can get today.

    Home... Tired, soaked and hungry but... I saw Black Caviar along with an estimated 10,000 Australian's who made the trip across the world to see her.

    I saw Black Caviar and a glimpse of Her Majesty but I was just so excited at seeing Sir Peter O'Sullevan....( hero worship, I am not worthy )

    OMG OMG OMG !!!

    What a shame It wasn't Prince Phillip who greeted Black Caviar's jockey after the race for I'm certain he would have said something to him akin to ' Well you ballsed that up didn't you?

    She started the race at 1/6 favourite but her jockey completely read the Ascot track wrong. For a few heart stopping moments, an estimated 70,000 race goers held their breath when her jockey believed he had won, slacked the reins and sat up unaware two French horses, Moonlight Cloud and Restiadargent had drawn alongside with approx 75 metre's to go. As he realised his error, Caviar got a reminder which he can thank god she responded to enough to win the race In a photograph finish by a nose.

    Watch the race:

    BBC Sport - Royal Ascot: Black Caviar wins Jubilee Stakes by a head

    What a plonker !!!!

    The thing that completely blew me away about Black caviar was the size of her. Mares especially sprinters tend to be smaller horses and I couldn't believe how big she was. 16.2 hands apparently. Some racing expert said she was actually bigger and heavier than Denman. I've been up very close and personal with Denman and they don't call him 'The Tank ' for nothing.

    As for the hype re Black Caviar vs Frankel....... there's no doubt Frankel would have walked all over her.
