Black Caviar Tests Positive For First Foal
Undefeated champion Black Caviar is in foal to Darley's incumbent Champion Australian Sire Exceed And Excel, reports theaustralian.com.au. Breeder Rick Jamieson, who owns Black Caviar's dam Helsinge, made the announcement yesterday morning to coincide with the unveiling of a life-sized bronze statue of the champion mare, with regular rider Luke Nolen in the saddle, at her birthplace in Nagambie, Victoria. Black Caviar, who was undefeated in 25 career starts that yielded a remarkable 15 Gr1 victories and over $7 million in prize-money, had to be sent back to Exceed And Excel for a second covering after failing to fall pregnant the first time. The great mare's owners are on record as saying her first foal will not be sold as they intend to race it themselves.
