Australian Racing Hall of Fame Honours Black Caviar

  • Australian racehorses have a special place in our history – and not always just for their performance on the track. Some of the true racing legends have stuck in our minds, and sometimes our hearts, for generations. It has even been said that horses like the late, great Phar Lap, were a saviour for some, being that his era fell dead centre of the Great Depression with propecia online, and the great star gave hope and spirit to thousands of our countrymen. This may seem a bit of an overstatement, until you actually consider how famous Phar Lap is. Find the closest child and ask them who Phar Lap was, and the odds of getting a correct answer are pretty high.

    Last week marked another historic racing milestone, as the Australian Racing Hall of Fame, at the Australian Racing Museum, celebrated the induction of betting favourite, Black Caviar, a horse with 23 starts and ZERO losses – a feat not having been equalled for the past hundred years!

    In 2001, the inauguration of the Australian Racing Hall of Fame honoured five of the pasts greatest – Bernborough, Carbine, Kingston Town, Phar Lap and Tulloch. Naming the greatest Aussie thoroughbreds ever to have taken the track by storm, has since become an annual honour.

    2002 – Manikato, Might and Power, Rising Fast, Wakeful and Sunline

    2003 – Heroic, Malua, Peter Pan, Tobin Bronze and Vain

    2004 – Ajax, Better Loosen Up, Gloaming, Poseidon and The Barb

    2005 – Chatham, Eurythmic, Galilee, Gunsynd and Todman

    2006 – Amounis, Makybe Diva and Shannon

    2007 – Flight, Grand Flaneur and Super Impose

    2008 – Tranquil Star, Wenona Girl

    2009 – Comic Court, Strawberry Road

    2010 – Northerly, Sky High

    2011 – no inductions

    2012 – High Caste, Let’s Elope, Octagonal, Redcraze and Takeover Target

    2013 – Black Caviar, Crisp, Delta and Star Kingdom

    The horses that have made the list are the greatest horses ever, in Australian racing history, to have donned the race saddle. Some will be household names for many a year to come. Therefore, with pride swelling our hearts (to the size of Phar Lap’s famous ticker) lets honour these Aussie greats.
