Helsinge Gives Birth To Black Caviar Sibling
Celebrated broodmare Helsinge, the dam of champion sprinter Black Caviar (Bel Esprit-Helsinge, by Desert Sun), gave birth to her latest foal on Saturday, reports bloodstock.racingpost.com. The new arrival, a bay filly by Casino Prince, is a half-sister to Black Caviar and a full-sister to Vinery Stud's multiple Gr1 winning stallion All Too Hard. Owner Gilgai Farm tweeted: "Helsinge celebrates Caulfield Cup day by giving birth to a full-sister to All Too Hard. Mother and daughter safe and well." As well as unbeaten 15-time Gr1 winner Black Caviar and All Too Hard, Helsinge produced the Redoute's Choice colt which set a new Australian benchmark earlier this year when selling for $5 million at the Inglis Easter Yearling Sale in Sydney.
