Exciting Australian sprinter Black Caviar secured her 11th victory from as many starts in the Pulse Pharmacy William Reid Stakes at Moonee Valley.

The five-year-old was last seen when winning the Newmarket Handicap at Flemington earlier this month, coming home three lengths clear and clocking the fastest time in the race's 137-year history.

Peter Moody's star filly was again sent off the long odds-on favourite for this latest Group One assignment, which also featured three of her stablemates.

Settled on the heels of the leaders by Luke Nolen, Black Caviar had to be shaken up to challenge for the lead on the turn for home, but she soon responded.

Once straightening up, the filly pulled clear under minimum driving to win with any amount in hand.

Nolen said: ‘I had to shake her up but when I did, away she went.

‘That's where she wins her races - in the middle stages of a race. She hasn't gone backwards since the Newmarket.

‘The only instruction I got was not to hit her - it's a bit surreal really.

‘There are a lot of people here and they are all here to see one horse.

‘She didn't let anyone down and just to be a part of it, I feel very privileged.’
