Black Caviar streak hits 24
Melbourne - Australian mare Black Caviar has won the 24th consecutive race of her career, taking out the 1 200m Williams Reid Stakes by four lengths at Moonee Valley on Friday.
It was the six-year-old star sprinter's 14th Group One win.
Black Caviar won her 23rd consecutive race on February 16 after an eight-month break. She narrowly won the Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot, England on June 23 but faced possible retirement after tearing a quadriceps muscle at Ascot.
She underwent laser therapy and exercised in a water walker - the equine version of water aerobics - to return for another season.
There have been persistent reports that trainer Peter Moody will soon retire Black Caviar, although she is likely to race in April at Sydney's Randwick.
