Black Caviar’s Little Brother Impresses John Hakwes

It’s only early days but Black Caviar’s $5 million little brother “Jimmy” is showing promising signs that he may just have some of what made his big sister world famous.

The prized yearling was inspected by John Hawkes at BC3 Thoroughbred’s Connewarre property on Wednesday and the hall of fame trainer was pleased with what he saw.

“I’m really pleased with how he has developed since the sales,” Hawkes told Racing Victoria.

“It’s pleasant to see that he’s a good-actioned horse and BC3 have done such a great job with him in bringing him along nice and quietly.”

Hawkes admits there is pressure in training a horse with such strong  relations to Black Caviar but it’s something he is used to.

Hawkes, along with sons Wayne and Michael, trained the recently retired All Too Hard to four Group 1 wins.

“Jimmy”, All Too Hard and Black Caviar are all related through dam Helsinge.

Hawkes said it is an exciting opportunity to train another horse linked to the great Black Caviar.

“If he turns out anywhere near (as good as) All Too hard or Black Caviar we’ll be pretty tickled pink,” he said.

“Jimmy” isn’t the first purchase out of Helsinge by BC3 Thoroughbreds, with the bloodstock organisation paying $2.6 million for Belle Couture last year.

Belle Couture is in work at Flemington with Danny O’Brien and is being set for her racing debut in the near future.

“Danny is doing a fantastic job there and his plan is to make sure that she is 110% and she’ll obviously be very competitive wherever he chooses to run her first up…We’re really looking forward to her running around spring time.”

With Black Caviar and a host of three-year-olds recently joining the retirement ranks, some star gallopers are certainly required to fill their places.
