Black Caviar's Pedigree
4yo Brown Mare
Bel Esprit – Helsinge by Desert Sun (GB)
Black Caviar was no fluke.
Bred by Rick Jamieson, prominent breeder and racehorse owner who has great pride in his small broodmare band at Gilgai Farm, Black Caviar is the result of many hours pouring over pedigrees, breeding theorys and inspecting horses.
The first mating to Helsinge – who has great links to Eliza Park. By resident stallion Desert Sun, she is a daughter of Eliza Park’s blueblood broodmare Scandinavia.
Scandinavia has producing another Eliza Park stallion – this years hot first season sire Magnus. Himself a Group 1 sprint winner of The Galaxy and also trained by Peter Moody.
Black Caviar was the first foal out of Helsinge, sold as a half sister to Magnus who had already won his Group 1 – presenting a beautiful page for when Jamieson placed her through the sale ring.
Black Caviar hails from the family that has also produced stakes winners Muirfield Village, Russian Tea Room, Frosty the Snowman and Midnight Sun. These all hailing from the unraced Vain mare Song of Norway who produced many good horses for another prolific Victorian breeder – Mr David Hains, best known in racing circles as the man who raced the mighty Kingston Town.
Black Caviar has what is known as a double cross to Vain. Vain – the horse that many regard as Australia’s greatest sprinter – in fact plays a significant part in this great mare’s pedigree.
