Black Caviar’s Baby Sister Steps Out at Flemington

The famous $2.6 million half-sister to super star mare Black Caviar, Belle Couture, took the first major step towards her maiden run with a low key jumpout at Flemington today.

Owned by BC3 Thoroughbreds, the expensive yearling purchase had her first official hitout over 800m at the famous Flemington track for trainer Danny O’Brien.

A daughter of top Australian sire Redoute’s Choice, Belle Couture attracted her hefty purchase price as she shares the dam Helsinge with undefeated turf queen and $7.9 million earner Black Caviar.

Connections are now eagerly awaiting her race debut to see if she can live up to the hype of her breeding and relation to one of the all-time racing greats.

O’Brien and jockey Damien Oliver, winner of this year’s Melbourne Cup aboard the Gai Waterhouse-trained favourite Fiorente, were both impressed with what Belle Couture showed in the jumpout.

“It was her first ever jump out so it was a lot about just learning,” O’Brien told Racing Victoria.

He said that while she was slow from the barriers, everything else she did pleased him and the report back from her hoop, who stayed in Melbourne for the trial before heading to Perth for tomorrow’s Railway Stakes Day meeting, was also positive.

“Apart from being a bit slow out of the gate, it was pretty good,” the Flemington-based horseman said.

“She mustered speed, travelled pretty easily and Damien Oliver was very positive about her.

“Really, I could not have asked her to do any more.”

Oliver didn’t fully extend the filly and allowed her some breathing space in the finish where she crossed second behind an unheard of Anthony Freedman-trained galloper.

“She ran second in the 800m trial and went okay,” Oliver told the Herald Sun.

“It was only an educational trial and I didn’t push her at all.

“I’ve ridden her only once before and she has improved, and she will have another jump-out in the near future before Danny O’Brien decides her racing future.”

Her nice trial and work leading up to it have O’Brien looking at a December debut for the highly spruiked youngster.

“She’s got a bit more to learn, but hopefully she will be at the races in December,” he said.

BC3 Thoroughbreds will be praying Belle Couture produces on the track after the disastrous events surrounding their prize colt, a full brother of Belle Couture, battles for his life following complications after a spider bite and subsequent reaction to the antibiotics.

The youngster known as ‘Jimmy’ made records in the sale’s ring setting the syndicate back nearly $5 million.

If they do pull through, the horse currently given a 50-50 survival rate as they battle the odds at the Werribee Vet Clinic, there is every chance they will never race.
