Blacks A Fake - Champion Queensland pacer
Blacks A Fake is arguably Australia's greatest ever pacer.
A winner of 72 races from 105 starts with over $4.5 million prizemoney, Blackie as he is affectionately known, now lives out his days as a rising 21-year-old in a paddock north of Brisbane.
In his heyday, the legend standardbred was known as one of the greatest pacers we have ever seen – a four-time Inter Dominion champion, being the only pacer ever to do so, as well as countless other marquee honours.
Ahead of the 2021 Group 1 $250,000 TAB Blacks A Fake, we paid a visit to Blackie to re-live his remarkable career and see how he's going in retirement.
