Black Caviar won a thrilling Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot on Saturday by a short head to extend her unbeaten record to 22 races in her first run outside her native Australia.
The Peter Moody-trained mare went off as the 1-6 favorite but was pressured by 5-1 shot Moonlight Cloud in a tense finish in front of Queen Elizabeth II and around 80,000 fans. Restiadargent finished third.
The 6-year-old Black Caviar is ranked second in the world behind Frankel, who won the Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot by 11 lengths Tuesday, and her mere presence created a buzz at Ascot.
The Queen is celebrating her Diamond Jubilee to mark her 60-year reign.
