Black Caviar Gives Birth To Second Foal
World champion sprinter Black Caviar has given birth to her second foal, a colt by Widden Stud's former champion juvenile Sebring, in the Hunter Valley, reports Racing.com. Black Caviar's part-owner Pam Hawkes confirmed that the colt was delivered without incident on Wednesday night. "Everything went smoothly...a hassle-free delivery," she told Melbourne's Radio Sport National. "He looks to have his mother's big backside so I'm hoping he's got the power that she's got." Widden Stud were obviously also excited, tweeting: "Congrats @blackcaviar2006! Delivered a gorgeous Sebring colt overnight! 10 years to the day Sebring himself was born!" The colt is a half-brother to Black Caviar's first foal, a filly by Exceed And Excel which is now a yearling. Hawkes said that neither progeny would be offered for sale. No decision has been made regarding Black Caviar's next mate.
