The focus this weekend will be on world champion sprinter Black Caviar (BEL ESPRIT), who resumes in the Group One VRC Lightning Stakes, but at Rosehill on Tuesday morning her little brother Moshe gave notice that he too can be a force during the autumn carnival.
Prepared by the Hawkes Racing team, Moshe looked well above average in winning at his only two runs to date at Bendigo and Moonee Valley last November, and has been given the time to mature further.
He stepped out at Rosehill in a 900m trial and coasted home to win by four lengths in 53.65 seconds.
Purchased for just $75,000 at the 2009 Inglis Premier Yearling Sale, he was considerably less expensive than his famous older sister Black Caviar who was bought from the same sale for $210,000 the year before.
