How fast did they go in the first 800m of that 1400m? 51.75sec, last 600m 33.39 Let's be real-that was nothing more than a track gallop

I give up.  Haylist was a great galloper.  Black Caviar was great mare who through thick and think remained unbeaten.  Why do we have to say anything against her.  It's not belittling Haylist he has a great record but he couldn't beat her.  Not that he ever stopped trying his great heart out.

Atreus has been beating the same drum for a long time and ignoring what is relatively common knowledge for almost as long. 

I'm dubious but this might help explain to novices and skeptics what Moody was up against throughout her career and why Black Caviar was carefully managed.

This good stuff belongs in her "proper" thread Dizzy.

With what we now know it's interesting reading some of the dismissive early comments in this thread about her lacklustre Adelaide and Ascot runs.

Who was the second best Bel Esprit? Black Caviar is the Powerball Bel Esprit- incredible fluke. Division2 pays $95,000.

2nd best Bel Esprit might be Bel Sprinter?

Correct. Moshe might've been with a longer career.
