Black Caviar

Undefeated champion Black Caviar has been declared in foal to champion Australian sire, Exceed and Excel.

The announcement was made by Black Caviar's breeder, Rick Jamieson, during the unveiling of a statue of the unbeaten star at her birthplace in Nagambie early Thursday, reports the Herald-Sun.

The life-size bronze captures Black Caviar and jockey Luke Nolen winning the Schweppes Stakes (Aus-I) at Moonee Valley in Oct. 2011.

    Oh, that’s so nice. Prayers for a healthy pregnancy and a beautiful foal. I LOVE the statue…just gorgeous and life-like… :-)

      Life-like is an understatement! Wow!

    Congrats to Black Caviar, Exceed and Excel and their connections! Even though she didn’t take on the first go round it did happen in September according to reports. Cannot wait to see photos of her foal next spring. If all goes well, her owners intend to race Nelly’s offspring even though they would break sales records at the Inglis yearling sale. Personally, I would keep her babies, too! Also, her dam Helsinge just delivered a very leggy and precocious filly by Casino Prince on Oct. 19th at Gilgai Farm, which makes her 7th foal a full sister to All Too Hard who just entered stud this season. Yippee….. I am so happy for everybody involved in this wonderful story. Actually it’s the fairy tale of a lifetime.

    Unfortunately, when she gave birth, all that came out were fish eggs.
    Roe Roe Roe Your Boat will debut in 2016.

    How great for Black Caviar, her connections and for Australia!! It’s been a wonderful thrill to see this great Champion race and I cannot wait to see how her babies turn out…

  • Terri Z

    I’m so happy for all of her connections and for all of her fans. Nelly knows how to be dramatic like Zenyatta; her pregnancy was announced when her statue was unveiled. What a beautiful sculpture of Nelly.
    How wonderful for the Australian people, who have embraced and honored this amazing mare.
    I will never forget her most heroic victory at Royal Ascot, when she was injured and pulled the race off by a nose.
