Oscietra Wins Second Start

She will never be as good as her mum Black Caviar, but she will continue the story of the champion.

Being her first foal, Oscietra pleased and relieved all by breaking her maiden race status at her second start.

At a windy Geelong on Friday, three-year-old Oscietra (by Exceed and Excel) began quickly to take up the lead in a 1000m-maiden on the synthetic track and kicked clear over the final 200m to win by 1-3/4 lengths ridden to perfection by Regan Bayliss.

Oscietra, who is named after a very special and expensive caviar made her racetrack debut on New Year's Day at Flemington drawing a large crowd to cheer her on. She was beaten into third place but none were disappointed with her fine first up effort down the Flemington straight.

Part-owner Neil Werrett was delighted with her Geelong win reiterating for all. "I think it was a great relief for the whole team here today. It's been a while since she raced on New Year's Day. She's very fit and David spent a lot of time getting her ready. So we're very relieved."

David was also relieved to see Oscietra win for the first time and said her next start would be in town on turf. "I gave her plenty of groundwork, including bringing her to Geelong for a jump-out on the synthetic track, to have her ready for Friday. Being Black Caviar's daughter, I didn't want to run her hoping. I'm pretty confident she'll go through into city class and as I said before she ran, she's a black-type filly in waiting, I think.I've seen her work with too many stakes winners in the stable and beat them."

Congratulations to owners Neil Werrett & Lena Attebo, Colin & Jannine Madden, Gary & Kerrin Wilkie, Pam Hawkes and David & Jill Taylor. May the Black Caviar legacy live on as the Oscietra story begins!
