Black Caviar Illustrated, Gerard Whateley
Fully updated, and including three new chapters, this sumptuous illustrated edition of Gerard Whateley′s acclaimed bestseller, BLACK CAVIAR, documents in words and pictures, the career of the racehorse who has transcended the track to become an Australian icon. It begins with the entrancing story of champion trainer Peter Moody, a self-made man bred in the remote outback of Queensland, who came to select and guide the fastest horse the world had ever seen.
Under Moody′s patient and masterful guidance, the hulking injury-prone filly matured into a champion, idolized by a devoted following more akin to a rock band than a racehorse. With her invincible run and marauding dominance, Black Caviar has returned racing to the glory days of more than half a century past and secured a reputation that will echo for as long as horses are sent out to race. This full-colour edition features more than 150 images celebrating Black Caviar′s achievements.
