Black Caviar retires after 25 wins

Black Caviar will be sorely missed in the world of horse racing as she is the best sprinter in the world.

The Australian mare will be retired after an amazing twenty five consecutive wins! In 2012, Black Caviar won the Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot, but in the process tore a quadriceps muscle. After fighting off thoughts of retirement, she made a comeback in February 2013 and won three more races, the most recent one being the TJ Smith Stakes at Royal Randwick. I was hoping that she and her owners would give me a few more chances to bet online and win some easy cash, but this sadly is not to be the case.

Peter Moody (the trainer) and her owners have decided that it was the ‘right time to call time on her wonderful career’. That career is truly impressive and is second to none, with fifteen Group One wins and prize money in excess of £4.5 million. This success is obviously mostly to do with the horse, but besides for the trainer, she has been ridden consistently by Luke Nolan (bar three races) for over four years.

The mare is now going to be enjoying her retirement, with a breeding career! Lets hope that she will able to bear offspring that will go on to match and maybe surpass her achievements. Horses like Black Caviar don’t come along that often, and I have to admit that it was a huge privilege to look at the animal in motion.
