My dh and I are not really horse racing enthusiasts but we decided to go to the Caulfield Race Course today to see the famous Black Caviar (who was about the equal Pharlap’s record of 14 straight wins).  It turned out to be a perfect day, a little overcast but pleasant.  We got there to see the first race.  As you can see the crowd was only small.

Here is the crowd before Black Caviar ran

Black Caviar warming up – I’m sure she knows she’s special – just look at the walk on her.

Getting read for the race.

The finish line.  She did it so easily, I don’t think the jockey even had to encourage her.

The winner –

And away she goes to cool down (doesn’t really look very hot does she).

This could be just the beginning for this amazing horse.  Let’s hope they can keep her safe, not like poor old Pharlap.
