Black Caviar Movie A Sure Thing, But Who Will Play Who?

With Black Caviar’s remarkable career coming to an end, it seems only a matter of time before a movie is made about the great mare, with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au opening a market on who will play the lead roles.

In what may be the hardest role to fill, Makybe Diva ($2.10), Ethereal ($5.00), Ortensia ($15), More Joyous ($25) and Let’s Elope ($25) all lead the market to play Black Caviar, with Sarah Jessica Parker an outsider at $101.

American actor Chris Bauer heads the betting at $5.00 to play trainer Peter Moody, with Australian Underbelly star Gyton Grantley next in the market at $6.00, Hugo Weaving $7.00 and Russell Crowe $11. NRL legend Fatty Vautin is also in the market at $34.

Jared Daperis ($5.00), Daniel McPherson ($6.00) and Firass Dirani ($7.00) head the betting to play jockey Luke Nolen with Shaun Micallef ($5.00) and Geoffrey Rush ($9.00) favourites to play owner Neil Werrett.
It seems a safe bet that handler Glen ‘Soft Hands’ Darrington will play himself at $1.50.

“The chances of them making a movie on Black Caviar are probably shorter than any price she went around at during her career. Will they stick to Australian talent or look overseas? And will Sarah Jessica Parker get the role she was born to play?” said sportsbet.com.au’s Shaun Anderson.
