David Hayes hinted in an interview after her trials, that she has some ability, but not sure she's anywhere near BC's grade, yet punters sent her out a short priced favourite.
After the race, Mr Hayes didn't look that disappointed, just said maybe she went too hard early and would talk to the jockey.
Based on her trials, one would probably send her out favourite, but the chances of her winning Black type races is small.
As any breeder would know, champions inherit certain genes from their parents and grandparents. The genes combine and become dominant under certain circumstances.
The point is, she'll throw some handy foals, but the chances of any one of them being a champion, are probably 100/1.
Even full brothers and sisters to champions rarely are as good for the same reason. Case in point Octagonal sired so many horses, yet Lonhro was the only one to come close, still not as good.
