Where: Jacobson's Outlook, High Street, Nagambie 3608
On 24 October 2013, history was created when Nagambie became home to the life size bronze statue of the world famous mare Black Caviar.
Black Caviar was born on 18 August 2006 at Gilgai Farm in Nagambie, Victoria. She grew up on the Goulburn River property and then went to Swettenham Stud in December 2007 for a 10-week yearling preparation where she was then sold on behalf of Rick Jamieson to the current owners to be trained by Peter Moody.
The champion mare then went on to become the fastest horse in the world, undefeated in every race.
On 17 April 2013 it was announced that Black Caviar retired from racing.
Sculptor Mitch Mitchell created the work in his Richmond studio from a photo of Luke Nolen riding the wonder horse home in the Schweppes Stakes at Moonee Valley in October 2011.
