Derby Day 9 April 2011 - Alias Black Caviar Race Day

Written by  Sharon Lenton

On Saturday, 9 April 2011 at Royal Randwick, the most outstanding Woman in Racing in Sydney must go to Black Caviar a true champion who blitzed her rivals for her 12th consecutive win.  Now crowned perhaps the best horse in the world, she was Australia’s queen today.  Walking into the enclosure to a roar of applauds and then a standing ovation on return to scale, it truly was an electrifying atmosphere.

And more, the only filly in the AJC Australian Derby rolls the boys.  Shamrocker became the fourth only filly to win the Derby since 1979.



On Saturday, 9 April attention must turn to the most elegant sea of black and white for a competition for best dressed woman valued at over $21,000.  The final 10 were well chosen by the first panel of judges who had a great eye for fashion and the audience showed their appreciation.  Sydney’s most elegant ladies were in town and left their impression.
