I know what caviar tastes like and I’m a fan, but I imagine it doesn’t taste anywhere near as sweet as the success brought to Peter Moody and co. by the amazing Australian mare Black Caviar.

When it seemed like the great US horse Zenyatta was going to be the mare to complete the perfect record of 20 from 20 last year, she stumbled at the final attempt finishing second to Blame in the Breeder’s Cup Classic.

There was never a doubt at Morphetville that Black Caviar would be trumped and she breezed home to a four length victory sparking scenes akin to Beatlemania, or 1Dmania?? I don’t know what the kids call this strange obsession over a group of boys from England & Ireland but it seemed quite similar.

A trip to Royal Ascot is now on the cards where we’ll get to see her run against some of the best in the Northern Hemisphere and a titanic clash with arguably the greatest horse in the world, Frankel, we  pray is on the cards.
