Black Caviar's brother snapped up for stud duty

MOSHE, a winning brother to brilliant sprinter Black Caviar, has been retired to Eliza Park Stud in Australia for the 2012 southern hemisphere breeding season.

Four-year-old Moshe is also a half-brother to All Too Hard, a dual Group 2 winner at two in Australia this season who finished second in Saturday's Inglis Sires Produce Stakes.

The siblings' yearling half-sister by Redoute's Choice sold for A$2.6 million at Inglis last year.

Eliza Park has billed its new stallion as an "opportunity for broodmare owners to tap into the hottest family in Australia".

Lightly raced, Moshe won three of his five starts including a six-length victory at Bendigo on his debut in a blistering 56.95 seconds (just outside the course record established in 1999). He was also a dual 5f winner at Moonee Valley.

Eliza Park nominations manager Mark Lindsay said: "Having seen Moshe for the first time I was really impressed with his physical appearance - he’s a very masculine horse like his sire Bel Esprit.

"Moshe is already 640kgs, has tremendous length, bone and conformation and we’re delighted to have the opportunity to stand him at Eliza Park, particularly given our close association with the family over the years: Eliza Park stands his sire Bel Esprit and bred and sold his mother Helsinge."

Moshe’s racehorse owners – a large syndicate formed by Roy Higgins and Wylie Dalziel Racing – have retained an interest in Black Caviar’s brother and an introductory service fee will be announced shortly.
