After a lot of hard-luck races where he could only do second at best, Moreno went wire-to-wire in the G1 Whitney Handicap (I) at 10-1 odds to earn an expenses-paid guaranteed spot in the Breeders’ Cup Classic (I).

My A-Z List of Favourite Horses- Black Caviar

Black Caviar was foaled in 2006. She is by Bel Esprit out of Helsinge. She raced from age 2 to 6 and was undefeated throughout her career of 25 races. She won 15 Group 1 races, as well as 7 Group 2 races. She was officially ranked the world’s best racehorse by time form from November 2012 until the end of April 2013. In my opinion her greatest victory was when she travelled to Royal Ascot to race in the Diamond Jubilee Stakes. She travelled all the way from Australia on a 30 hour flight, it was reported she wasn’t feeling herself, and she sustained an 8 centimetre muscle tear during the race but still managed to win by a head. This display of heart is on of the reasons Black Caviar is special to me.

Citation was foaled in 1945. He was by Bull Lea out of Hydroplane. Citation raced 45 times over 4 seasons of racing. He won 32 races, came 2nd 10 times and 3rd twice.

Through his 3 year old and 5 year old season he amassed a 16 consecutive win streak, which stood until Cigar equalled it in 1994-1996. Citation was also the first horse to become a millionaire.
