Black Caviar retires from racing

Black Caviar retires from racing

Champion mare Black Caviar’s career is over, with her owners and trainer announcing today she will retire.

Black Caviar has claimed an unprecedented 25 wins from 25 starts – the longest winning streak in world racing for more than a century.

Trainer Peter Moodey says she’s in great shape and 25 is a great number, and they got three more wins out of her than they expected.

Her owners are now planning to begin a breeding career, where her foals could fetch millions of dollars.

Black Caviar has won just over $8 million in prize money

Moody says her fans will get the chance to say one last goodbye to the champion mare, when she is paraded as Caulfield this Saturday.
