Unbeaten Australian mare Black Caviar will retire after winning 25 consecutive races.

Trainer Peter Moody said Wednesday that "25 was a great number" and "she has done everything we have asked her to do."

Black Caviar, ridden by her regular jockey Luke Nolen, won her 25th race last Friday in the T.J. Smith Stakes at Royal Randwick by two lengths. It was the six-year-old sprinter's third win since coming back from an eight-month injury layoff in February.

Black Caviar narrowly won the Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot, England, on June 23 of last year and faced possible retirement after tearing a quadriceps muscle at Ascot.

But laser therapy and exercise enabled her to return to the track for another and turns out her final season.
