Black Caviar

IF this was the last time Sydney race fans see Black Caviar, the mare has left a memory to last a lifetime.

More than 23,000 packed Randwick, thousands lined the fence outside the course, and millions nationwide watched the race on television. Black Caviar gave a virtuoso performance.

The champion, who has captured the hearts of a nation, also breaks the hearts of her racetrack rivals.

Black Caviar maintained her unbeaten record with her 25th win in the Group 1 $1 million TJ Smith Stakes (1200m). It was arguably her best performance.

Rival riders weren't about to make it easy for her, but Black Caviar showed why she was now regarded as one of the greatest racehorses of all time. Trainer Peter Moody might have seemed outwardly cool, but his chain-smoking gave away his nervousness.

About

Rohan Kelly grew up on a farm in Western Australia and, after a stint at university, returned to work on the family property. Picking up a camera for a holiday to Africa, he was hooked. He then moved to Perth to study photography, and got his first full-time job in 1998 at the Northern Territory News in Darwin.

His first taste of international attention was in 1999 when East Timorese was evacuated to Darwin Airport during the election crisis. He also covered the 2000 Sydney Olympics as part of the News Limited national team of photographers and was a finalist in the Walkley Awards with his sports pictures.

In 2001, he moved to Sydney to work at The Daily Telegraph and has since worked across all sections of the paper including time on the picture desk at the Daily and Sunday Telegraphs.
