It's been about 80 years since Phar Lap famously conquered America, Today Black Caviar joins Phar Lap as an Australian racing legend.

Black Caviar Extends Perfect Racing Record To 22 Wins At Ascot

Black Caviar (foaled 18 August 2006) is an undefeated Australian Thoroughbred racehorse (across 22 races), a success record not equaled for over 150 years. She is considered to be the best sprinter in the world, having been named WTRR World Champion Sprinter in 2010.[4] On 31 March 2011 Black Caviar was rated one of the top Thoroughbred racehorses in the world (with a 136 rating) for the first quarter of 2011

Black Caviar, the world’s top-ranked sprinter, extended her perfect record to 22 straight horse- racing victories by winning the Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot in a photo finish.
Jockey Luke Nolen eased up the six-year-old mare, the overwhelming 1-6 favorite, in the closing moments of the six- furlong (1,200-meter) race. He realized his mistake just in time to get his horse over the finish line in front of French challenger Moonlight Cloud.

“I probably just underestimated the testing track of Ascot,” Nolen said in an interview with the British Broadcasting Corp. “They’re going to talk about my brain fade rather than her fantastic finish. We just got away with it.”

It was Black Caviar’s first overseas race after winning 21 straight in Australia, where her exploits have attracted record crowds and front-page headlines. Her fan base at home is big enough to have justified showing the Diamond Jubilee Stakes live on a giant screen at Federation Square in Melbourne, where the sprinter is trained. The U.K. race started after midnight local time.

The trip to Ascot began June 6 with a 30-hour flight that took her via Singapore and Sharjah, United Arab Emirates. She wore a specially designed compression suit for the journey.
