Moyston breeder-trainer Peter Franklin this week forwarded a photograph of some of Blonde Caviar’s pups whelped on December 22, 2017 to the boom sire Barcia Bale.
All told, Blonde Caviar, a daughter of Where’s Pedro x Lemon Cruiser, whelped a litter of seven dogs and three bitches, a couple more than her first litter in May 2015 to US sire Bella Infrared.
Among the first litter is McIvor Verna, a winner of 10 races from 31 starts and $37,000 in prizemoney. The fawn bitch, holder of the Tara Raceway 600 metre record at 34.84 seconds, will line up off the 10 metre mark in a 725 metre handicap at The Meadows on Saturday night.
And Horsham breeder-trainer Jeff Guy has advised that the beautifully bred Frac Geek – by Where’s Pedro out of $360,000 winner Proven Impala – is due to whelp her first litter this weekend to Barcia Bale.
Frac Geek was a winner of 12 races at Sandown Park, The Meadows, Horsham and Bendigo as well as three races in succession at Tara Raceway over 512 metres, 600 metres and 400 metres in September last year.
