Black Caviar “She is more relaxed and I am more relaxed,” Moody told reporters on the eve of the Group 1 Goodwood at Morphettville on Saturday.

There are only a handful of tickets left for the meeting where a 30,000 strong crowd will gather on a possibly drizzly day to see if she can extend her record streak to 21 wins from 21 starts.

The possibility of rain is the onlyvariable Moody can see threatening Black Caviar‘s bid.

“She is going to the races for the 21st time and she’s never seen rain, so she might be a fair-weathered horse,” Moody said.

Moody said he was very happy with her preparation and she was in better shape than last time when she won the Sportingbet Classic.

The mare’s coat appeared somewhat shaggy for that assignment with Moody conscious she needs to peak at the right time which is at Royal Ascot in June.

Brenton Wilkinson, chief executive of the South Australian Jockey Club, said he was excited about having her race in Adelaide for the second time in two weeks before such huge crowds.

“Wejust have to build on getting this to continue into the future,” he said.

Wilkinson scotched rumours that a Saudi prince had flown into Adelaide to look over Black Caviar.

He said there was a Saudi contingent in town but it was for an oil conference next week.

Moody said Black Caviar‘s owners had no intention of selling. “She has a big not-for-sale sign over her head,” he said.
