SU­PER­STAR Black Caviar claimed her fourth con­sec­u­tive Group One vic­tory and stretched her win­ning record to 11 with a crowd-thrilling per­for­mance in the Wil­liam Reid Stakes at Moonee Val­ley last night.

Rated the world’s best race­horse by Time­form ahead of dual Cox Plate win­ner So You Think, the un­beaten Peter Moody-t r ai ned mare was sent out at the pro­hib­i­tive quote of $ 1.09 which looked lux­u­ri­ous af­ter the race.

There were a cou­ple of anx­ious mo­ments for those that took the short odds as Black Caviar was trapped three wide in the early stages of the 1200m weight-for-age event.

But she quickly rounded up her ri­vals and raced away in the straight to score by 13⁄ lengths from reign­ing Golden Slip­per win­ner and race leader Crys­tal Lily ($ 15).

Black Caviar’s sta­ble­mate Hinch­in­brook ($ 31) fin­ished strongly to be an­other 11⁄ place.

‘‘ When I did ( shake her up) she went away. That’s where she wins her races – in the mid­dle stages of her races,’’ Nolen said.

‘‘ We put them away and sat up for the photo. The only in­struc­tions I got were ’ don’t hit her’.’’

Moody sug­gested Black Caviar had to be wo­ken up dur­ing the race when Nolen had to shake her up to get her go­ing.

‘‘ He just had to wake her up a lit­tle bit on the night. It’s a bit late, she should be at home hav­ing a camp,’’ Moody said.

‘‘ Noth­ing wor­ries her. Noth­ing fazes her at all. What do you say?

‘‘ She’s just gone and done the job again, full credit to her, it’s hard to take credit for any part of it. ‘‘ She’s just a ma­chine.’’ A crowd of more than 10,000 at­tended the sea­son’s night rac­ing fi­nale with the club hir­ing buses to 7 F Ed­wards ......................................... 55.5

Moody won a $ 134,000 MercedesBenz GL350 for his horses pass­ing the $ 1 mil­lion mark in prize money over the night rac­ing sea­son while Nolen col­lected a $ 33,500 tele­vi­sion for his mounts reach­ing the same tar­get.
