Black Caviar’s half-sister to be named Belle Couture

BC3 Thoroughbreds has announced the name of the most famous unraced filly in the country as Belle Couture.

The half-sister to Black Caviar by Redoute’s Choice out of Helsinge had been affectionately known as Pippa (sister to royalty).

BC3 CEO Bill Vlahos said the filly is the princess of the BC3 stable and that it is a fitting name.

“Belle Couture is a filly with tremendous poise and strut, she is the princess of our stables,” Vlahos said.

“It’s fitting to have a name that reflects such high end beauty and style.”

Currently in pre-training at BC3’s Grace Park, Belle Couture will be sent to trainer Danny O’Brien with the view to preparing her for the feature two-year-old events in 2013.
