Oscietra (Aus) (Exceed And Excel {Aus}), the winning first foal out of Australian superstar Black Caviar (Aus) (Bel Esprit {Aus}), won for the second time in four starts, landing a Benchmark 64 handicap at Ballarat over 1000 metres on Sunday. Luke Nolen, the regular pilot of Black Caviar, was back aboard, having ridden Oscietra in her third-place debut behind subsequent G3 Ladbrokes B.D. Preview (F) heroine Limestone (Aus) (Helmet {Aus}) at Flemington on New Year’s Day in 2017. Storming up to vie for the lead, the bay was going well enough three off the fence at the 400 metre-mark and galloped home to win by 1 1/2 lengths from Levitical (Aus) (Not A Single Doubt {Aus}) in :57.04.

Off the mark on the Geelong synthetic going this trip on Aug. 11, Oscietra resurfaced with a ninth at this level returned to Flemington on Sept. 27 and was withdrawn from a Feb. 9 engagement after being fractious in the stalls.

The David and Ben Hayes and Tom Dabernig trainee required a barrier blanket on Sunday.

“Like mother, like daughter,” trainer David Hayes told Racing.com. “It’s nice to get her back on track.”
