What are people's thoughts?

I personally love watching her race and she has amazing ability to turn it on when needed.

I know there are lots of critics about who she has raced etc, but what a record and now the richest ever in prize money

People easily get jealous of such an amazing record. Best I've seen, and Bowman never really needed the whip.

My beef is with local TAB paying out $1.00 win and $1.00 a place over its last 5 or 6 starts. It's bordering criminal. Those odds should only apply if the entire pool was invested on her, which clearly it never was.

I think it's a very good horse for Australia. We'll never truly know how good though.

It won (joint?) horse of the year, a world-wide recognition, so it's like coming equal with Messi in football terms.

Yeah, probably be outright winner. If it were my horse, I wouldn't risk a long trip either. Didn't do Black Caviar many favours, even though she won o/s which shut a few up at least.

Black Caviar was the same time as Frankel. probably the best race horse ever.
