Black Caviar wins 19th straight race.

Black Caviar to bypass Futurity, Dubai date.
Unbeaten superstar Australian sprinter Black Caviar will not attempt secure her 20th win in a row in the Futurity Stakes (Aus-G1) on Saturday and also will bypass a planned trip to Dubai to focus on a start at Royal Ascot.
Trainer Peter Moody told the Herald Sun that Black Caviar will be pointed to the six-furlong Diamond Jubilee Stakes (Eng-G1) in June at Royal Ascot.
Black Caviar won the Essendon Mazda Australia Stakes (Aus-G2) January 27, the Sportingbet C. F. Orr Stakes (Aus-G1) on February 11, and the Coolmore Lightning Stakes (Aus-G1) on February 18.
“Black Caviar won’t be chasing her record 20th consecutive win in Saturday’s Futurity Stakes at Caulfield, or next month’s Newmarket Handicap (Aus-G1), or, for that matter, in Dubai—or anywhere else for the next two months,” Moody said of Australia’s reigning Horse of the Year. “There’s nothing wrong with her. To the contrary, she’s at the top of her game.
“But it’s all geared around having her at her peak when she flies across to England for the Diamond Jubilee Stakes. That’s the Royal Ascot race the owners have had their sights on for some time and everything is being tailored like a Savile Row suit to have her cherry-ripe for that race on June 23.
“I’ve got no doubt that Black Caviar could have gone to the Futurity on Saturday and just won as easily as she did in the Orr Stakes earlier in the month, but it would have been her fourth run in five weeks. I had to look at the bigger picture.
“I’m looking to give Black Caviar her shot at stretching her winning streak to a perfect 20 in either Adelaide or Brisbane before we head off to England.”
