Racing Sharks VIP Tips Package:
No jockey or trainer has been able to establish consistent success in the Black Pearl Stakes, and no horse has ever won the race in consecutive years. Moonlover is probably the most notable winner of the race in recent times, having recorded 10 career victories.
Smart Coupe clocked 1:11.00 to win the Black Pearl Stakes in 2019, however, it wasn’t the fastest time in the race over the last five years. That honour belongs to Moonlover, who ran 1:10.48 to win the Black Pearl Stakes in 2018.
