Australian Story - Fade to Black (Black Caviar)
This Australian Story provides new insights into a saga that's captured the imaginations of all kinds of people all around the world. When Melbourne staged a final farewell to Black Caviar, it had been two years since the champion mare first featured on Australian Story.
Since then her story has gone global and now rivals that of Phar Lap in terms of regard and recognition. The program documents the Black Caviar story from the stud farm where she was born to her 25th race and the sudden decision to retire her.
The horse's owners reveal some of the detail behind that decision.
And there is exclusive footage of the mare's first full sister, a weanling foal said to bear a strong resemblance to Black Caviar.
