One of the most influential broodmares of modern Australian racing, Helsinge, has passed away.
She never raced but gave birth to highly successful progeny, most notably champion mare Black Caviar who won all 25 of her career starts earning in excess of $7.9 million in prize money.
Helsinge is also the dam of multiple group one winner All Too Hard who is now standing as a stallion at Vinery Stud in Scone, NSW.
The circumstances of Helsinge’s death are yet to be revealed but her owner Rick Jamieson is devastated.
She was 15 years old.
