Racehorse Black Caviar races to the cover of Vogue magazine
staff writers, The Courier-Mail, September 08, 2012
SHE'S conquered everything from Flemington to Royal Ascot, and now super mare Black Caviar can add cover girl to her list of growing achievements.
The champion will be on the December cover of fashion magazine Vogue.
She is believed to be the first animal to take centre stage on the long-running magazine.
The shoot, with an unknown female model, has taken place and the whispers are that Black Caviar passed the assignment with flying colours, just like everything else she does.
The mare joins an amazing list of glamorous females to have made the cover of Vogue supermodels such as Elle Macpherson, entertainer Delta Goodrem and most recently actor Bella Heathcote.
The Vogue cover continues Australia's fascination with the champion mare, who has never been defeated.
A decision will be made soon on whether she will race again.
Trainer Peter Moody said last month an autumn grand final tour of Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane would be his dream farewell for the champion mare.
Black Caviar has won 22 races in a row, including 12 Group 1s, and won more than $6.8 million in prizemoney.
"It's a $50 million question on whether she'll even race again, and I've got absolutely no idea," Moody said.
"My dream is to have a grand final tour of Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane."
Her most recent victory was at Royal Ascot, in the Diamond Jubilee Stakes in June
