Black Caviar’s Daughter Posts Maiden Race Win

Black Caviar’s daughter Oscietra has returned to racing in this best way possible; leading from start to finish to post a dominant win in the Hanlon Industries Maiden Plate (1000m) on the Geelong Synthetic course this afternoon.

Plenty of hype understandably followed Oscietra to her racing debut at Flemington on New Year’s Day, but after taking up the running, the Exceed And Excel filly faded late to finish second behind Limestone, who franked that form with a smart win in the Group 3 Ladbrokes Blue Diamond Preview (1000m) and second behind Catchy in the Group 2 Blue Diamond Prelude F (1100m).

Jumping from the gates well this afternoon, jockey Regan Bayliss allowed Oscietra to stride forward and immediately take up the running; setting a reasonable tempo for the field of maidens.

Enjoying a carefree run on pace, the three-year-old held her position on the rails rounding onto the final straight and immediately responded when asked for an extra effort; kicking clear of her rivals and producing an impressive late sprint to hit the line three lengths in the clear of Sancy’s Diamond.

Trainer David Hayes was pleased with Oscietra’s performance for success this afternoon and believes that she will only improve into her next start.

“I think that if it wasn’t so windy, she might have won a little bit easier,” Hayes said.

“It’s just incredible how much speed she has. The intention was to sit third or fourth, but she just led them and he (Bayliss) had to ease her back to them.

“Some maidens are weak, but I think that this will become quite a good form reference. I’m pretty confident that she’ll go through to city class and as I said, she’s a black type filly in waiting I think.

“I will give her a bit of time between runs. Being Black Caviar’s daughter, I didn’t want to run her hoping, so she did have that extra trial.

“Her next run will be on turf and it will be in the city. I’ve seen her work with too many stakes winners in the stable and beat them, so she’s just got to do it on race day.”

Co-owner Neil Werrett, who was also in Black Caviar, was on hand for Oscietra’s maiden win and was understandably thrilled with the filly’s run.

“It was a great relief for her to win today,” Werrett said after the race.

“David’s got her in great order and she came out and did what he expected first race, but it was good – great to get a win.

“I expect over the spring that she’ll develop. I’m sure David will take it easy and through her grades and he’ll pick out a race at Moonee Valley in about three weeks’ time I think.”

Black Caviar’s second foal, by prominent sire Sebring, is due to arrive at the Sydney stables of Team Hawkes in three weeks, while her third foal, by More Than Ready, is due to drop in September.
