Oscietra will head to the paddock for a month

If David Hayes can take a positive out of the debut defeat of Black Caviar’s daughter Oscietra at Flemington it is that he won’t have to push her to run in the rich two-year-old races during the autumn.

Instead the filly, who was beaten into third place in the New Year Plate on Sunday, will head to the paddock for a month and be allowed to develop and grow.

“There’s one good thing about her not winning and that is you’re not tempted by Diamonds and Slippers,” Hayes said.

“She’s bred to be a great three and four-year-old and so we’ll take that view now.”

Black Caviar did not race as an early two-year-old, making her debut at Flemington in April 2009, the start of a 25 run unbeaten winning streak.

Lindsay Park’s senior trainer said allowing Oscietra a month in the paddock now would be beneficial to her long term racing career.

And Hayes is of the opinion that with time the filly will win her share of races.

“Mum never raced at this age for a reason,” Hayes said.

“So we’ll give Oscietra a month off and she won’t be seen for three or four months, but I think she’ll be bloody good.”

Like jockey Luke Nolen, who rode Black Caviar to 22 of her 25 wins, Hayes hopes the comparisons with the great mare are finished.

“She’s not mummy, but who is,” he said.

“We’ve all raced for 30 years and I haven’t seen one like Black Caviar, so you wouldn’t think there’ll be another like her.”
