In the Australia Stakes Black Caviar strolled to a 3 length victory and matched the modern era Australasia record of Seventeen straight wins from the start of a career, held by the Aussie born champion Hong Kong sprinter Silent Witness.
During the C F Orr Stakes (1400m) she easily defeated reigning Caulfield Cup winner Southern Speed by 3.75 lengths, in spite of a step-up in distance, and tied Ajax for most consecutive victories by an Australian race horse since 1930.

After a brief spell Black Caviar resumed her historic run in the Sportingbet Classic, where she entered the most dominant favourite ($1.04) in Morphettville history, and saluted thirty-thousand onlookers with a decisive 4.5 length win.
Black Caviar's next start took place in the Goodwood Handicap on May 12th. Sent out a massive favourite ($1.04), she defeated We're Gonna Rock ($26) by 2 lengths while being eased to the line.
After being spelled, Black Caviar was brought half-way around the world for a tilt in the Royal Ascot. Sent out the dominant favourite, she won by the narrowest of margins much to the relief of her connections, and all of Australia.
As such she moved to twenty straight-two victories, adding to her modern-day record for metro wins from the start of a career. It was also her twelfth Group One win, just two short of the Aussie record of fourteen held by Kingston Town.
Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot

Moonlight Cloud ($9), in a relentless pursuit nearly caught Black Caviar ($1.15) at the finish, placing a short head second with french raider Restiadargent ($81) a quarter length back in third.
