Black Caviar has been named Australian Horse of the Year for a second straight year at an awards ceremony in Melbourne.

The world champion sprinter raced nine times for as many wins during the 2011-12 season for a total of almost $4 million in prize money.

She won six Group One races, culminating in her Diamond Jubilee triumph at Royal Ascot in June.

Black Caviar's connections will decide later this month whether she will be prepared for an autumn campaign or be retired.
