Horse Racing - Black Caviar Lightning Stakes

Now run over 1000 metres (approximately five furlongs) at Flemington in Melbourne, Australia each February, the lightning was staged over five furlongs from its inception until 1972. In 1987 it became a group 1 event and had the name of the horse that who won the race in 2011 and 2012 added to its title in 2013. The Lightning is the first leg of the Australian Autumn sprint series, which also features the Oakleigh Plate at Caulfield and the Newmarket Handicap, also run at Flemington. In 2007 the race was run at Moonee Valley due to refurbishment work at Flemington.
