Training Job Up for Grabs – Black Caviar’s $5 million Brother

Vlahos, whose bloodstock firm fought off bids from a number of other parties, said Black Caviar trainer Peter Moody is definitely one of the front-runners.

“I’m happy to speak with Peter, who is one of the best trainers in Australia and who started all of this off,” Vlahos told News Ltd.

Others who appear strongly in the running are Team Hawkes and Danny O’Brien.

John Hawkes and sons Michael and Wayne train Black Caviar’s superstar half-brother All Too Hard, who has won six of 11 starts and more than $2 million in prizemoney.

O’Brien trains the unraced Belle Couture, a half-sister to Black Caviar who BC3 bought for $2.6 million at last year’s sale.

“We like what John Hawkes has done with All Too Hard,” Vlahos said.

“We’ll probably make a decision in the next week or so but we don’t want to be rushing into it.”

Yesterday’s $5 million purchase who is by Redoute’s Choice out of super broodmare Helsinge, smashed the previous Australian yearling sale record of $3 million.

Vlahos said it was “exciting” to have acquired the colt but admitted they had to go over their limit to get him.

“Our last bid was going to be $4.5 million so we were definitely over our limit,” he said.

The second most expensive yearling bought yesterday was a half-brother to Starspangledbanner who went for $2.4 million.
