Not yet exceptional. When the exceptional rating is reached this is highlighted
The fastest mare in the world

Black Caviar

by Aussie

Thunder from down under
Flying hooves - racing moves
Pink silks with polka dots
Jockey gave no whip

Born to run - black mare
She has won every race
From twenty-five starts
Black Caviar blitzed the field

No horse could catch her
Up there with the best
Ascot was amazed at her speed
No whip ever used - no need

This amazing mare retired
Well before her time
Her racing days are over
Owners saved her for stud

Her record will stand forever
Just like Pharlap - never beaten
Crowds came to cheer her on
She will be missed forever long.


Black Caviar has just been retired from racing, her owners felt she needed a rest. After entering and winning twenty-five races from twenty-five starts she reminds us of the wonder horse Pharlap - he was never beaten. Every nation needs heroes and the little mare gave us her all. I don't follow horseracing (I think the only way to follow a horse is with a shovel!) I do have a passion for horses.
