Champion racemare Black Caviar has safely delivered her first foal after giving birth to a filly by Exceed And Excel.

The bay filly, who is said to have a small white marking on her forehead and small white socks on her front feet, arrived early on Saturday after a smooth birth.

Announcing her arrival, Black Caviar’s part-owner Neil Werrett said in a statement: “She was a champion on the track and she’s proved to be a champion mum with the safe arrival of her first foal overnight.

“We’re incredibly proud that she’s given birth to a filly and equally delighted that both Black Caviar and her foal are healthy and doing well.

“We wish to thank the team that have nurtured her so well throughout her pregnancy and ensured the safe delivery of the filly.

“Black Caviar was the people’s horse and we are looking forward to sharing this filly’s journey with the people of Australia.

“It will be a long and patient road from birth to racetrack so at this time we are revelling in the excitement of being proud parents.”

After hearing the news, Black Caviar’s former trainer Peter Moody tweeted: “So pleased to hear of the safe arrival of Nelly’s first foal.”

Black Caviar retired in 2013 with a perfect record of 25 wins from 25 runs, including 15 wins at the highest level.
