Black Caviar won her 23rd consecutive race on Feb. 16 after an eight-month break. She narrowly won the Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot, England, on June 23 and faced possible retirement after tearing a quadriceps muscle at Ascot.

She underwent laser therapy and exercise in a water walker - the equine version of water aerobics - to return for another season.

There have been reports that trainer Peter Moody will soon retire Black Caviar, although she is likely to race in April at Sydney's Randwick.
