Could Lightning Strike Twice
Racing fans could be in for a treat with two of Black Caviar’s foals in training.
Recording-breaking mare Black Caviar won all of her 25 starts across five seasons in a stunning career that began in April 2009, with 15 of her wins coming at the highest level.
Black Caviar’s first two foals, Oscietra, by Exceed And Excel, and Prince Of Caviar (Sebring), both won before retirement, while her third foal, Out Of Caviar (Snitzel), was retired unraced.
Her fourth foal Ready For Caviar (More Than Ready), a three-year-old filly, has had two starts including a second placing on debut, and is in training with Tom Dabernig and Ben Hayes.
With Black Caviar’s fifth foal Invincible Caviar, by I Am Invincible, there is hope that history may be repeated, as she is set to be trained by Peter Moody, Black Caviar’s trainer who led her through her career, unbeaten.
The 56-time Group 1 winning trainer, who returned to training last year, stated that of all Black Caviar’s progeny, this is the one who has the most similarity to her famous mother.
“I am not going to dare to dream that she's going to have mum's ability, but when I walked down the barn and saw this head hanging over the door, you could dead-set think mum was in the stable,” Moody told racing.com.
“This filly is a dead ringer of her: the head, physique, colour, it's unbelievable, it's uncanny.”
With a possibility of the filly racing in a month or so, racing fans could be in for a treat.
