Black Caviar: 19 wins in a row, Britain bound



BRISBANE, Australia (AP) — Australian horse Black Caviar is preparing to take on the world after an unprecedented 19 straight wins to start her racing career.

The 5-year-old mare owned by a consortium of families and friends, some Melbourne-area vegetable growers, will have one more start in Australia on April 28 before preparing for Britain’s Royal Ascot in late June.

With an official website, Twitter account and Facebook page dedicated to Black Caviar, her reputation has already spread far and wide.

Some turf experts have even compared her favorably to Phar Lap — the Depression-era galloper long regarded as the best to ever race in Australia.
