While debate rages furiously over which stallion should be selected for Black Caviar's first mating, her dam is looking at rather the opposite situation. Helsinge, the world’s leading broodmare, will not be bred this year
The 12-year-old mare has already produced seven foals from eight seasons, and is currently in foal to Casino Prince. When she drops that baby, she will have a whole year off to rest
Her first foal was the super mare Black Caviar, born in 2006. She was followed by full brother Moshe. Helsinge was bred to Australian stallion Churchill Downs in 2007, but failed to conceive. In 2009, she foaled All Too Hard by Casino Prince, and was then sent to Redoute’s Choice. The result of that, the filly Belle Couture, was born in 2010. Her 2011 colt, another Redoute’s Choice, recently sold for a record $5 million. In the later part of last year, Helsinge gave the world a full sister to Black Caviar (2012 filly pictured with Helsinge, above). She will round off with her foal by Casino Prince later this year
