Black Caviar relation trials at Cranbourne

MELBOURNE Aug 8 2016

A half-sister to unbeaten champion Black Caviar has made her first public appearance in a Cranbourne barrier trial.

By Casino Prince out of Helsinge, Brigite is a sister to multiple Group One winner All Too Hard.

Brigite finished midfield in the trial over 800m on Monday under Luke Nolen who rode Black Caviar to 22 of her 25 victories.

Trained by Ciaron Maher, Brigite wasn't asked to do a lot in the hit-out which was run on a heavy track.

Maher said he was in no hurry to find a race for the recently turned three-year-old who has been showing ability on the training track.

He said Nolen kept a firm grip on the filly who was lacking fitness and not happy on the wet going.

"Luke said she would appreciate a better surface but she'll come on a lot from that," Maher said.

"It's a starting point for her. She's a big strong horse that will need a couple of good hit-outs.

"She's still a little way off but we'll find a race when we think she's ready."

Brigite is the seventh foal of Helsinge.

Black Caviar and All Too Hard are her first and third foals while her second, Moshe, is showing promise as a sire.

Helsinge's two foals after All Too Hard, were high-priced yearlings put through the Inglis Easter Sale in Sydney.

A colt nicknamed Jimmy was knocked down for $5 million to the controversial BC3 Thoroughbreds but had to be euthanised following a suspected spider bite.

Belle Couture, a $2.6 million yearling, retired as a maiden after four starts.

Breeder Rick Jamieson, of Gilgai Farm, has retained Brigite to race.
