Black Caviar captured hearts across the world during her racing career which spanned from 2009 – 2013. Her historic unbeaten record of 25 wins from 25 starts included eight memorable wins at Flemington as well as the nail-biting international victory at Royal Ascot where she took on the world and had fans on the edge of their seats. That victory solidified her status as the world’s best sprinter. See the wonder mare parade in the Flemington Mounting Yard Prior to the Group 1 Black Caviar Lightning.
