Just 25 days after being crowned Australian Horse of the Year, Makybe Diva racked up more firsts with a winning return to the track at Melbourne's Caulfield Aug. 28.
An incredible closing run by Makybe Diva might be the last Australian race fans see of the champion mare.
Australian horses being primed for raids in Asia and Europe had a day out at Melbourne's Caulfield oval Feb 26. Elvstroem and Makybe Diva staged a thrilling St. George (Aust-II) renewal, and Fastnet Rock broke a 120 year-old weight record to land the Oakleigh Plate (Aust-I).
