$1.2m Makybe Diva Filly 7th On Debut
Meanwhile the valuable 2nd foal from dual Australian Horse-Of-The-Year & triple Gr1 Melbourne Cup winner Makybe Diva (Desert King-Tugela, by Riverman) finished unplaced on debut yesterday when 2YO filly La Dolce Diva (Fusaichi Pegasus-Makybe Diva) finished 7th (in the field of 9) over 1200m on the synthetic track at Geelong in Victoria for trainer Mark Kavanagh. La Dolce Diva was a $1.2 million yearling at the 2010 Inglis Easter Sale in Sydney. Kavanagh previously told the media he planed to give the filly “a run this preparation to give her the experience & then put her away & train her for the Gr1 VRC Oaks”.
