Oscietra, the daughter and first foal of Black Caviar has broken her maiden status in dominant fashion on the Synthetic track at Geelong on Friday. 

Even after her defeat on debut and eight months off the scene, there was still plenty of attention around the daughter of Black Caviar when she lined-up in the Hanlon Industries Maiden Plate, the third race at Geelong on a regulation Friday afternoon meeting. 

It wasn’t a foregone conclusion that Oscietra would just win, with this being an above average Maiden. This was pointed out by co-trainer David Hayes post race. Hayes told Racing.com “Some Maidens are pretty weak, this (Maiden) will be a good form reference. The first starter from the Hawkes stable Consider It Done shaded Oscietra for favouritsm but could only manage third place after sitting three wide. 

Oscietra pinged the start and landed a length in front. Jockey Regan Bayliss took up the lead but had the daughter of Black Caviar under a strangle hold, controlling a very slow tempo. Bayliss had his rivals stacked up around the corner with just four lengths separating first and last.

After not settling on debut down the Flemington straight on debut behind Limestone, Oscietra relaxed well under Bayliss here at Geelong. As the turned into the straight, Bayliss had a lap full of horse and released the shackles under the 200m. Oscietra kicked clear and just like her Mum did so many times, put the race beyond doubt. 

They didn’t break any records, with Oscietra running the 1000m in 59.29s. This can be excused by the very windy conditions and slow tempo. The win was extremely impressive and she isn’t the only horse to follow from the race.

There was plenty of market support for the first starter Consider It Done. The Filly stuck on well considering her tough run facing the breeze. The Bon Hoffa Mare Bon For Glory ran home very well in the concluding 200m off a slowly run race and looks to have improved leaps and bounds of her first preparation.

Neil Werrett who was part-owner of Black Caviar also has a share in Oscietra. “It was a great relief for her to win today,” Werrett told Racing.com. “David (Hayes) will pick out a race for her at Moonee Valley in a few weeks time.” Werrett also shared some more exciting news, with Black Caviar’s second foal, a Colt, will be going into the Hawkes stable in a few weeks.

Co-trainer David Hayes was very impressed with his Filly. “If it wasn’t so windy, she might have won a little bit easier. It’s incredible how much speed she has, the intention was to sit third or fourth.” Hayes told Racing.com

“I’m pretty confident she’ll go through into city class. I’ve seen her work with too many stakes horses and beat them. As I said prior to this race, She’s a black type Filly in waiting.”
