Black Caviar Half-Brother Goes for Over $1 million at Easter Sale

A half-brother to the world’s fastest horse Black Caviar has sold for over $1 million at the Australian Easter Yearling Sale in Sydney today, setting an Inglis Yearling Sales record for this year.

Black Caviar has already won over $2.5 million in prize money

One of the biggest crowds ever seen at the William Inglis complex came to get their glimpse of racing royalties’ relative, Black Caviar’s half-sibling enticing an animated bidding war at the sale.

The stunning looking bay colt by Casino Prince out of Helsinge eventually sold for $1.025 million to Hawkes Racing who outbid Black Caviar’s trainer Peter Moody.

The colt will be co-trained by Wayne Hawkes along with his father John and brother Michael.

Although still a long way from hitting the race track in the hopes of emulating just some of the success of his half-sister Black Caviar, the colt is already a record breaker being the most expensive yearling sold at the 2011 Inglis Easter Sales.

Prior to today’s sale, the largest price at the 2011 sales was $1 million large that Gerald Ryan paid for a Redoute’s Choice filly.

The $1.025 million could prove a steal if the colt is even half as talented as the Peter Moody-trained Black Caviar, who is by sire Bel Esprit but shares the same dam, the Australian-bred Desert Sun mare Helsinge.

Black Caviar, purchased for just $210,000 at the 2008 Premier Sale in Melbourne, has already amassed over $2.5 million in prize money having won all 11 of her career starts to date including four Group 1’s consecutively.

The four-year-old superstar is out for her 12th at Randwick on Saturday when she makes her Sydney debut in the $1 million Group 1 TJ Smith Stakes (1200m).
