The Hunter Welcomes Caviar

Friday, 26th July 2013

Champion mare Black Caviar has arrived at Darley Stud to commence her breeding career, following confirmation that Exceed and Excel will be her initial suitor, reports abc.net.au. Commenting on her arrival, head of sales Alistair Pulford enthused, "It's very exciting for all of us and very exciting for Sheikh Mohammed ... Exceed and Excel was the first major, major investment horse-wise in Australia, Sheikh Mohammed forked out a huge sum of money to purchase him as a stallion prospect ... He's lived up to all those expectations and he's about to become champion [sire]." In regard to the looming mating with Black Caviar, he added, "[Exceed and Excel is] a great two-year-old sire and because of that he's a great stallion to start a mare off with."
