because I was caught in the crush, and actually had someone fall on my head after trying to stand on his mate’s shoulders for a better vantage point. As the horses headed onto the track, the challengers all held back and let Black Caviar prance the straight to the crowds roaring approval – it was an unprecedented show of respect in racing circles. The next time the adoring public would see the fi ve-year-old was as she tore to victory. The jockeys behind were cracking their whips in a frenzy, while Luke Nolen did not touch his ride… he looked as if he could’ve poured himself a cuppa up there such was his casualness. If you haven’t taken any interest in Black Caviar’s career to date, I strongly urge you to do so from here on. It’s sounds trite, but it will genuinely be one of those stories you tell your grandkids about one day.

t’s time to tease your hair and put on your glad-rags when the hit musical, Hairspray, returns to Sydney in May. Set in 1960s Baltimore, Hairspray is the story of Tracy Turnblad, an overweight but spunky and talented teenage girl who just won’t take no for an answer. Tracy must overcome the prejudices of the day in order to realise her dream of dancing on Th e Corny Collins TV Show. The Broadway and movie blockbuster will be reborn with Australia’s fi rst ever community production of the show at the Canterbury-Hurlstone Park RSL from May 25. The Weekender has a double pass to Hairspray at Canterbury Hurlstone Park to give away. For your chance to win, like us on facebook and then email louise.bourke@ by May 22 with your name and address.

would lose 14 races during his famous career. Black Caviar has now won in Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney, and heads off to take on the world’s best in England next month. We were actually quite privileged in Sydney – her win here last year was easily the most impressive of her career. It’s the only time she has been challenged… it looked like Hay List had her beaten, but the champion found a sixth gear no one knew she had and sped home to win like it was never in doubt. But seeing Black Caviar on the weekend reminded me of just how special she is. It’s rare to see a good news story, and even more rare for it to be something that everyone can celebrate and enjoy. The crowds arrived hours before Black Caviar ran, dressed in her trademark salmon. In the mounting yard, the crowd was 20 deep to get a glimpse of her – I know this

It’s pretty rare you get to witness a moment in Australian history, but that’s exactly what I did on the weekend. I have attended sporting events in every code across the country, but never have I experienced anything like the pandemonium at Adelaide’s Morphettville Racecourse on the weekend. Black Caviar, the undisputed Queen of Australian racing, was the star attraction and she didn’t disappoint. It was her 21st win from 21 starts – and the party atmosphere was greater than any 21st I’ve ever been to before. The beauty of this racehorse is that everyone is on her side. Horse racing is traditionally full of highs and lows – you win and you lose – but rarely, if ever, has there been a horse which has everyone’s support. Sure, there was Phar Lap, which inspired many through the depression with his inspirational career – but even that champion
