Fusaichi Pegasus Filly To Makybe Diva

Thursday, 21st August 2008

Australia's most famous mare, triple Gr1 Melbourne Cup winner & dual Horse-Of-The-Year Makybe Diva (Desert King-Tugela, by Riverman) has given birth to a filly foal by Coolmore shuttler Fusaichi Pegasus (Mr Prospector-Angel Fever, by Danzig). This is the 2nd foal for Makybe Diva, who produced a colt by former Coolmore shuttler & Gr1 English Derby winner Galileo last spring & is now booked to visit fellow Coolmore stallion & last season's Australian champion sire Encosta de Lago. Makybe Diva (the only horse to win 3 Melbourne Cups: in 2003, 2004 & 2005) retired in November 2005 with 15 wins (11 stakes from 1400-3200m, including 7 Gr1s) & 7 placings from 36 starts for $14,526,685 earnings.
