2015 Flemington Festival: Black Caviar Lightning Stakes
February 18, 2015 by Marc Jerbs

On Saturday, the Victoria Racing Club Group will host the annual Black Caviar Lightning Stakes at the Flemington Racecourse in Victoria, Australia. It is a Group 1 weight for age race run over a distance of 1000 meters. The race winner will earn A$300,000 and trophy.

Six top sprinters have confirmed its participation led by Oakleigh Plate, New Market Handicap and T.J. Smith Stakes winner Lankan Rupee. Lankan Rupee's quest to retain his title as the world's best rated sprinter will be challenged by undefeated Deep Field, young sprinter Brazen Beau, Watermans Bay and Tiger Tees.

The race handicappers have installed Lankan Rupee and Deep Field as co-favorites to win the Black Caviar Lightning Stakes on Saturday. A dead heat is highly unlikely as both horses are expected to outsmart each other.
