Black Caviar clinches record

5:53 pm on 14 April 2013

Australian champion thoroughbred Black Caviar banished any remaining doubts of her place as the world's top female sprinter with a storming finish to claim her 25th win in as many races in the TJ Smith Stakes at Royal Randwick.

Roared on by a sell-out crowd of 25,000 Sydneysiders, the six-year-old mare also confirmed her status as one of Australia's greatest horses alongside 1930 Melbourne Cup winner Phar Lap and triple Melbourne Cup winner Makybe Diva.

The victory on Saturday gave Black Caviar the Australian record for Group One race wins with 15, eclipsing the mark held by Kingston Town since his last outing in 1982.
