Hawkes Stable Confirmed As Trainers Of Black Caviar’s $5 Million Brother

It has been confirmed that the latest addition to the Black Caviar family will be trained by the Michael, Wayne and John Hawkes at Flemington.

The decision to send the Redoute’s Choice colt to the Hawkes brothers was made official today after much speculation.

Peter Moody, who trains the one and only Black Caviar, was also in the mix to train Helsinge’s latest progeny but failed to make the cut.

Rumours that the Hawkes brothers had secured training rights of Black Caviar’s little brother broke yesterday, and Wayne Hawkes was hopeful they were true.

“If the rumours are true then we’re over the moon that we will be training the third member of this family,” he said.

“At the end of the day not many trainers have John Hawkes’s record of training expensive colts and setting them up for stud,” he said.

“My father’s record speaks for itself – Octagonal, Lonhro, even an up-and-coming sire like Real Saga.”

The new colt was purchased by BC3 Thoroughbreds for a record $5 million earlier this week at the Sydney Easter Yearling Sale.

BC3 also own older sister Belle Couture, who is yet to have her first race and is to be trained by Danny O’Brien.

The syndication company has decided to nickname the newly purchased colt Jimmy, in keeping with their royal theme.

Belle Couture’s stable name is Pippa, the sister to royal Kate Middleton, while Jimmy is the other Middleton sibling.

The colt will now spend the next month in the paddock to learn how to be a horse again, before being broken in.

The new trainers and connections will then begin to look at options for the unnamed galloper to make his racing debut.

The Hawkes stable previously trained Black Caviar’s half-brother Moshe, before acquiring brother All Too Hard.
