WONDERMARE Black Caviar has delivered her third foal, with a filly by antipodean sire sensation Snitzel arriving at a private location in the Hunter Valley in the early hours of Sunday morning.
The new addition follows on from Black Caviar's first foal, a filly by Exceed And Excel, now a two-year-old and named Oscietra, and a colt by Sebring.
The ten-year-old daughter of Bel Esprit went undefeated in a 25-race career, with her 15 Group 1 victories including a narrow defeat of Moonlight Cloud in the 2012 Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot.
Snitzel, a son of Redoute's Choice, stands at Arrowfield Stud, from where he has sired the likes of Group 1 winners Shamus Award, Snitzerland and Wandjina. During the 2015/16 campaign he equalled Without Fear's record of 30 individual two-year-old winners in a season.
Black Caviar's immediate family looks set to continue to grow, as earlier in the year it was revealed that her dam, Helsinge – a 15-year-old daughter of Desert Sun, was to visit Woodside Park Stud's Written Tycoon.
