2011 William Reid Stakes Final Field Released

March 23rd, 2011

It has been confirmed that Black Caviar will attempt to make it 11 unbeaten wins in a row in the Group 1 William Reid Stakes this Friday night March 25, 2011, at Moonee Valley, after final fields were released today.

The 2011 William Reid Stakes is a standard weight-for-age race run over 1,200 metres and is worth a total of $500,000 in prize money.

The presence of Black Caviar in the already quality 2011 William Reid Stakes field has caused a number of horses to bow out of the race.

While 15 horses nominated for the Group 1 race, only 9 horses have chosen to accept for the 2011 William Reid Stakes final field.

Crystal Lily is among the horses that are willing to have a crack at defeating the seemingly unbeatable Black Caviar.

The Stratum filly finished second to Black Caviar in the Group 1 Newmarket Handicap last start, proving she was the best of the rest of the field.

Crystal Lily has won four of her 11 career starts, including the 2010 Golden Slipper.

The three-year-old filly has drawn barrier seven for the 2011 William Reid Stakes and will be ridden by jockey Stephen Baster.

While there will be nine talented horses taking to the racetrack on Friday night, everyone’s eyes will be on only one, Black Caviar, as she attempts to soar even higher and make further horse racing history with an 11th unbeaten win.

This will be Black Caviar’s fourth Group 1 victory should she win the 2011 William Reid Stakes, after winning the Group 1 Newmarket Handicap last start in untouchable style, despite carrying the top weight in the field.

Black Caviar will be ridden by regular jockey Luke Nolen in the 2011 William Reid Stakes and will jump from gate six.
