Oscietra Missing in Action Others Doing Well Thank You
Come on girls. Hay is not free, you know.
It is time to start racing.
To be fair, Limestone, along with Miss Wahoo, have been earning their keep, but the filly who finished behind them in a 1000 m race at Flemington in January, the much ballyhooed foal of Black Caviar, Oscietra, has yet to take the field again.
It is as though she has fallen off the face of the earth. The famous offspring of Black Caviar debuted to enormous expectations, where it seemed as though nothing less than a win by a large margin would satisfy the racing public.
Darren Weir’s Limestone has been showing good form, winning a Group 3, the Blue Diamond Preview at Caulfield, and finishing second in the Group 2 Blue Diamond Prelude, where only Catchy was better.
Tony McEvoy’s Miss Wahoo has been working at least, but she may need some time to prove herself.
As for the Hayes and Dabernig filly Oscietra, we can find nothing in the way of information about when she might run again.
Black Caviar has a yearling colt by Sebring and had her third, a filly by Snitzel in September of 2016.
It is hard to imagine her birthing another to come anywhere near what she was able to do on the track.
