By now, every horse racing fan on Earth has heard of Black Caviar–the uber-horse from Australia who’s won 24 races in a row, as of today. (25 March 2013) This record has not been equaled in over 100 years of Thoroughbred racing.
Now, the irony as I see it is this: Black Caviar has scores of fans–millions, perhaps. Countless admirers, all over this blue marble of a planet. The big, strapping (16.2 hands/ approx. 5/8″ at the withers), dark horse won her respect, one race at a time.
