Prince Of Caviar

Black Caviar's son and Winx's half-brother are set to stand side-by-side at Benalla's Riverbank Farm this season.

Racing bluebloods Prince Of Caviar and Boulder City may not have had the on-track success of their relatives, but Riverbank Farm's Russell Osborne is confident they will be popular at stud.

Boulder City's oldest progeny are yearlings, while this will be Prince Of Caviar's first season at stud.

"It's a fantastic opportunity," Osborne said of standing Prince Of Caviar.

"We didn't really have a plan. We thought we were lucky enough to get the half-brother to Winx and to be able to get the son of the other greatest race mare we have seen is unbelievable."

Osborne said his veterinarian wife Caroline's connection to Black Caviar during the early stages of her time at stud had helped Riverbank secure Prince Of Caviar.

"So she actually had a bit of an association with (Black Caviar's owner) Neil Werrett," Osborne said.

"It's an honour to stand him.

"I think they will support the horse themselves, pretty well. It was a no-brainer for us to say yes when the opportunity arose."

Osborne said he was 'really, really impressed' with Boulder City's first crop.

"You probably won't see any at the sales because the people that have gone to him want to race them themselves," he said.

"I would put some of the Boulder Citys up against the best yearlings around and I think they'd measure up very well."

Riverbank, which specialises in breeding to race, said he expected strong interest in Prince Of Caviar, despite the economic impact of COVID-19.

"The majority of our people breeding at this lower end aren't relying on sales or anything like that," he said.

"So it's business as usual. They will be breeding as per usual, I would presume.

"I would imagine he (Prince Of Caviar) would get a nice support, but like I say, it's a very unpredictable year."
