Black Caviar: one of our best sportswomen? I don’t think so…

Research output: Contribution to journalOnline ResourceProfessional

Abstract

[Extract] After fans have given a fond and very public farewell to Black Caviar, the Australian record-braking mare that went undefeated in 25 races, Kate Galloway wishes we would give regular women’s sport the same media coverage.

The retirement of racehorse Black Caviar last week dominated news headlines and even prompted a mention from Australia’s Prime Minister, who said that we would be unlikely to see something like her again in our lifetime.

While I recognise that Australians love their sport and that horse racing in particular is a cherished pastime – indeed an ‘industry’ – I confess to being somewhat nonplussed about the elevation of this beautiful creature to such an all-star status.
