Black Caviar becomes a covergirl

Dazzling beauty and horse racing sensation Black Caviar graces the cover of Vogue Australia, making cover girl history! She’s the fastest racehorse in the world, and Australia’s most beloved sports star, and it’s the first time in the magazine’s 53-year history that a horse will appear on the cover.


Black Caviar (known at home as “Nelly”) was photographed by young Australian photographer Benny Horne in the foothills of the Dandenongs in a purpose-built outdoor studio alongside the thoroughbred of Australian modelling, Julia Nobis.

Weighing 570 kilograms and standing 16.2 hands, the statuesque bay mare is not our every-day cover girl, yet she is undeniably beautiful. No doubt she’d rather have been galloping down the straight at Flemington or Randwick than standing in a paddock, but she was on her best behaviour while posing with internationally renowned model Julia Nobis for photographer Benny Horne. The history-making mare is undefeated in 22 races.
