BLACK CAVIAR: TO SET BEFORE A QUEEN
PART 2 - BLACK CAVIAR: TO SET BEFORE A QUEEN brings the story up-to-date to follow the mare's training in the lead-up to Royal Ascot, where she raced in front of the Queen in the Diamond Jubilee Stakes on June 23, 2012.
Still unbeaten after 21 races, BLACK CAVIAR took on Europe's best at Royal Ascot to win yet again, taking her unbeaten record to a total of 22 races. This programme has exclusive access to the team behind champion mare BLACK CAVIAR ahead of her Royal Ascot debut and includes stunning coverage of BLACK CAVIAR as a foal, from taking her first steps to her successes on the racetrack, and viewers are even treated to a virtual ride on the racing superstar, with coverage from a jockey's eye view.
"The reason the industry wakes before everybody else, every morning of the year, is the promise of a BLACK CAVIAR. For history and prestige there's nothing that compares to Royal Ascot. On her status as the best sprinter in the world and the best sprinter of all time, she should be winning this race," says Gerard Whateley, BLACK CAVIAR's biographer.
It's a success story in which many have played a part. BLACK CAVIAR is out of the mare HELSINGE by stallion BEL ESPRIT with blood links to legendary champion VAIN on the sire and dam sides.
This second installment edition features exclusive access to BLACK CAVIAR's media-shy breeder, Rick Jamieson; AFL legend Kevin Sheedy who is part-owner of BEL ESPRIT; Peter Ford, the equine advisor who found HELSINGE; with assured contribution by Gerard Whateley, BLACK CAVIAR's official biographer.
It also features exclusive vision of BLACK CAVIAR's new full sister in utero.
Whether you're a racing enthusiast or not, you'll be truly moved by this mare's incredible story. There's never been one like her before and there may never be again. BLACK CAVIAR - a true legend in the racing world!
