Hall of Fame Spot Black Caviar’s Latest Honour

Already regarded has the world’s best horse, champion mare Black Caviar has been recognised in an official capacity with induction into the Australian Racing Hall Of Fame.

While it is usually customary to wait until after retirement to induct a horse into the hall of fame, the sprinting queen takes her place at the height of her powers.

The six-year-old again turned heads at Flemington on Saturday when she returned in stunning condition to break the track record in the Group 1 Black Caviar Lightning (1000m).

The victory took her phenomenal record to 23 unbeaten starts, including 13 at Group 1 level, and her prize pool to more than $7.1 million.

But the show is not over. Black Caviar is expected to race in the Group 1 William Reid Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley on March 22 and trips to Sydney and Brisbane are also on the cards.

Three other horses entered the Hall Of Fame alongside the superstar mare including Melbourne Cup winner Delta, top sire Star Kingdom and extraordinary jumper Crisp.

The late Bruce McLachlan, who won a remarkable 16 training premierships in Brisbane, was the only trainer inducted.

There were a total of 10 new inductees into the hall of game at a gala dinner in Melbourne.

Inventor of the totalisator, Sir George Julius, was one of three associates to be given the honour along with farrier Albert O’Cass OAM and bloodstock agent and adminstrator David Coles AM.

Jockeys Hughie Cairns and Geoff Lane were also inducted.
