The 2015 Black Caviar Lightning Stakes is a 1000m sprint race up the straight at Flemington, that takes place at the start of the Autumn Carnival in Melbourne. The Lightning Stakes is a WFA group 1 race, and has been won in recent time by such greats as Black Caviar, Scenic Blast, Apache Cat and Takeover Target. There is nothing quite like a sprint race up the straight at Flemington!

This year we see a somewhat disappointing field of six lineup for the Lightning Stakes. No doubt many have been scared off by the proposition of competing against last years horse of the year Lankan Rupee, and Team Hawkes up and coming superstar Deep Field, who has five impressive wins from as many starts.
