Black Caviar Wins 3rd Successive HOTY Title
At last night's annual Australian National Thoroughbred Awards gala presentation in Melbourne, two-time Racehorse of the Year Award winner Black Caviar (Bel Esprit) make it a hat-trick when winning the award again for the 2012/2013 racing season. The feat equals that achieved by the exceptional New Zealand racemare Sunline. Retired to stud earlier this year for a mating with Exceed And Excel, Black Caviar won all three of her seasonal starts (Gr1 Black Caviar Lightning, Gr1 William Reid Stakes & Gr1 TJ Smith Stakes) to take her final tally to an undefeated sequence of 25 wins. Runner-up to Black Caviar was All Too Hard, her younger Casino Prince half-brother who made his stud debut this breeding season at Vinery.
