BLACK CAVIAR'S BROTHER FIGHTS FOR LIFE
Thursday, 14 November 2013: Black Caviar’s baby brother is fighting for his life after complications arising from a white-tail spider bite.
The $5m colt is believed to have been bitten a fortnight ago, and has since reacted badly to antibiotic treatment.
BC3 Thoroughbreds chief Craig Cameron, who helped secure the son of Redoute’s Choice at the Inglis Easter Sale for a record price, said the next 48 hours were crucial.
The two-year-old known as ‘Jimmy’ contracted laminitis after a bout of diarrhoea stemming from his spider-bite treatment.
