Black Caviar, the Australian Racing Thoroughbred sensation, is creating international hysteria by shattering records and delivering unrivaled performances on two continents! Excited fans eagerly gather in the thousands to watch this powerful mare with her distinctive salmon coloured silks with black spots fly down the track to claim victory after victory. Currently undefeated in 22 races, Black Caviar was officially rated #1 on the World Thoroughbred Rankings in March 2011 by the Federation of Horse Authorities, and is the highest rated sprinter in the world. Number 22 of her winning streak was in the 2012 G1 Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot in the United Kingdom, which was followed by a special congratulatory pat from Her Majesty the Queen. This incredible performance highlighted just how exceptional Black Caviar is, as she was the first mare to win this race in almost 30 years!
This seemingly unstoppable mare is trained by Peter Moody and has been ridden by jockey Luke Nolen in all but three races. Known as ‘Nelly’ to her friends, Black Caviar’s winnings total more than $6.8 million Australian Dollars. As of June 2012, she holds the modern day world record for the longest unbeaten career in international racing, breaking the records of Australian champions Gloaming and Desert Gold and the U.S.A.’s Zenyatta.
