The 'King Of The Kids' has struck his first blow for #TeamFLR with the Tony McEvoy trained BLACK CHAMPAGNE blowing her opposition away on debut and giving her owners one huge thrill!
Off the back of two strong jumpouts - one official and the second more impressive trial unofficial - the professional filly did everything right on debut jumping, leading and kicking away. The owners on track erupted with delight as the pocket rocket filly delivered a result to remember.
A $36,000 Magic Millions QTIS purchase by Paul Willetts & Ashleigh Dowley - the 7 November foal has been through the outstanding system that is Tony McEvoy's Angaston operation and like many this season the well educated, well handled filly has gone to the races on debut the upmost professional.
Worth celebrating! Black Champagne dominates on debut for her owners
"She was awesome" said FLR's Belinda who has put together many proud owners in this filly and admits to almost faithing as she watched her beloved filly win in 37 degree Adelaide heat.

"She handled the whole day so well. Only 5 runners but the others were all on two feet pre race, sweating up and just looking overwhelmed while Black Champagne handled it like she'd done it 100 times before"
What a thrill for the many owners in Black Champagne who'll now head to the Listed 1050m 2-Year-Old Fillies Cinderella Stakes at Morphettville on Saturday 3 March.
"She's a ripper. She was a very racy style of filly when we purchased her and of course being from a Stakes winning mare and a full sister to a Stakes performed 2YO she'll have immense residual value if she can win the Cinderella Stakes at only her 2nd start"
Congratulations to all owners and the Tony McEvoy team who Black Champagne becomes the first #TMaCTeamFLR winner!
