Black Caviar’s Little Sister’s Debut Not Far Away

The much-anticipated racing debut of Black Caviar’s multi-million dollar sister Belle Couture may come as soon as May.

The two-year-old, who was bought as a yearling for $2.6 million, will return to work with trainer Danny O’Brien this week.

By Redoute’s Choice out of Helsinge, the exciting filly is a half-sister to both Australia’s champion mare Black Caviar and rapidly emerging superstar All Too Hard.

O’Brien told Radio Sports National there will be no rushing her to the races before she is ready, indicating that she is being set for a spring preparation.

“She’ll start work this week and she’ll have a good solid build-up and if she gets to the races it’s probably looking more like May-June at this stage,” O’Brien said.

“The main thing that we’ll be doing now is setting her up to be a force in the spring.”

While it is still unknown whether the pedigree will transpire into results on the track, O’Brien said the early signs are positive.

“She’s really grown a lot and furnished into a lovely filly and I’m looking forward to getting her into the stables shortly,” he said.

Racing fans may have to wait a little longer to see Belle Couture at the track but big sister Black Caviar is only a couple of weeks away from continuing her autumn campaign.

The unbeaten six-year-old will have her second autumn start in the Group 1 2013 William Reid Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley on Friday, March 22.

The queen of the turf made a successful return to the track last month to take her unbeaten streak to 23 when winning a third consecutive Lightning Stakes in typically dominant style.

The autumn action really heats up this weekend and sensational odds can be found at!
