Superstar racehorse Black Caviar has been retired, only days after winning her 25 straight race on Saturday, the TJ Smith in Sydney. It was also an Australian record 15th Group 1 win, cementing herself as one of the all time greats.
"The owners had a long chat the last couple of days and we thought 25 was a great number," trainer Peter Moody said.
Gai Waterhouse trained Overreach has dominated Australia's richest 2yo race, taking out the $3.5 million Golden Slipper at Rosehill on Saturday. The exciting filly, who started $2.80 favourite, sat just behind the speed on the fence, and dashed clear in the straight to comfortably beat Sidestep and Sweet Idea.
