(AP) Unbeaten Australian mare Black Caviar will retire with a perfect record after winning 25 consecutive races.

Trainer Peter Moody said Wednesday that the super sprinter “has done everything we’ve asked her to do” when he appeared at a news conference in front of Caulfield race track, where the 6-year-old mare will make a farewell, non-racing appearance for track patrons on Saturday.
He said he and the ownership group led by Neil Werrett had discussed Black Caviar’s future over the past few days and “we decided at lunch today” to announce her retirement.
“We feel we’ve done our job, we feel she’s done hers and she deserves a break now,” Moody said. “Twenty-five is a great number. She’ll wander off into the sunset.”

Black Caviar, purchased by Moody for $225,000, won $8 million ($8.3 million USD) in prize money, including an Australian-record 15 Group One wins, most over distances around 1,200 meters.
