Champion mare Black Caviar’s first foal to race Oscietra has been well beaten in midweek company at Sandown.
Black Caviar’s daughter Oscietra was sent out an easing $4.20 favourite and after hitting the lead inside the final 300m, weakened to finish eighth, 5.6 lengths from the winner.
Lindsay Park senior trainer David Hayes said he wasn’t looking to make excuses for her the filly’s performance.
“Her two big flops have been on two of the toughest tracks in Australia, Sandown and Flemington,” he said.
“It’s a very tough 1000 metres here and she needs a bend to be able to use her acceleration, but I don’t want to make excuses.”
