All eyes will be on the $1 million TJ Smith Stakes this Saturday April 9, 2011, as Black Caviar takes to the track in an attempt to win her 12th unbeaten race start.
As expected, Black Caviar is tipped to win the Group 1 TJ Smith Stakes.
According to Sportingbet Australia CEO, Michael Sullivan, everybody is jumping aboard the Black Caviar bandwagon, with punters refusing to put their money on anything else.
“We took a bet of $150,000 almost instantly and since then we have taken further bets of $100,000, $44,000 and $22,000,” Sullivan said.
“Punters won’t hear of her getting beaten and the likes of Hay List and Crystal Lily can’t find a supporter to have more than $100 on them.”
Black Caviar drew well in the barrier draw, and will jump from gate five in Saturday’s race.
The Bel Esprit racing superstar will be ridden by her usual jockey, Luke Nolen, and will carry the set 56.5 kilogram weight for four-year-olds.
Hay List, who is often labelled as the “best of the rest”, is tipped to finish in second position in the 2011 TJ Smith Stakes.
The five-year-old Statue Of Liberty gelding is fresh off a first place finish in the Group 2 Challenge Stakes at Warwick Farm on March 27, 2011.
Hay List has drawn barrier 10 for the 2011 TJ Smith Stakes and will be ridden by jockey Glyn Schofield.
Shoot Out, who is tipped to finish in third, has drawn well in barrier two and will be ridden by jockey Corey Brown.
