Black Caviar Relation to Make Metropolitan Debut at Moonee Valley

The David Hayes & Tom Dabernig-trained Sistonic has long attracted attention due to her breeding but the three-year-old filly proved she’s a star in her own right earlier this month, winning a 1100m maiden at Sale on January 15 by four and a half lengths.

Sistonic is by Black Caviar’s sire Bel Esprit while their mothers are half-sisters.

The filly will tackle her next goal at Moonee Valley on Friday after being nominated for a Benchmark 64 over 1200m – her first metropolitan race.

“She has come through the race well,” Tom Dabernig told Sky Racing.

“It’s always a big step going from a maiden to city class but I think she’s the type of filly that could do it pretty well.”

Sistonic was one of 26 three-year-old fillies nominated for the Moonee Valley race on Monday morning, heading the field at 60kg along with Peter Moody’s Thelittlecracketeer. The quality field includes ten last start winners, including three that also won on debut.

If Sistonic’s four and a half stunning victory at Sale wasn’t good enough on its own, Blocker Dee who was runner-up in the race went on to win his own maiden on Sunday by four and a half lengths, which means good things for Sistonic’s form.

Hayes & Dabernig also nominated Sistonic for both the Group 1 Newmarket Handicap (1200m) and Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m) on Tuesday afternoon.

Sistonic is one of 57 sprinters nominated for the Newmarket Handicap on March 14 while a staggering 122 horses featured in the Australian Guineas nominations for March 7.

First acceptances for both races will be taken on February 24, at which time Hayes & Dabernig will know which distance Sistonic prefers.
