Black Caviar Retires Unbeaten


Black Caviar retired

Black Caviar and her connections announced her retirement after her 25th win. The really tall fellow is her trainer, Peter Moody.

“We thought 25 was a great number… it’s the right time to call it a day on what’s been a wonderful career of one of the finest horses we have ever seen,” said Black Caviar’s trainer, Peter Moody. “She couldn’t have possibly done any more.”

With those words, the unbeaten 6-year old mare, Black Caviar was retired. She won 25 races and is considered by many, to be the greatest racehorse ever. Certainly she re-invigorated racing in her native Australia.

A few racing stats for Black Caviar:

  • She won $7,953,936 in stakes earnings
  • Australian Horse Of The Year season 2010-11 and 2011-12
  • Inducted into the Australian Racing Hall Of Fame in 2013 (the first horse ever to be inducted while still racing)
  • Ranked the best sprinter in the world for three straight years from 2010-2012
Her distinctive silks — salmon with black dots — will be retired with her.
