Champion Divine Madonna Produces Another Godolphin Winner
Former champion Australian race mare Divine Madonna has produced another winner for Godolphin, this time by Street Cry filly Maternal at Warwick Farm in Sydney yesterday. A Hurricane Sky-My Madonna mare (an $82,500 purchase at the Magic Millions Adelaide Sale) Divine Madonna was trained by Mark Kavanagh to win over $2 million dollars in a career that netted her 8 wins (including the Gr1 Emirates Stakes, Gr1 Queen Of The Turf Stakes, Gr1 Myer Classic & Gr1 Toorak Handicap) and another two Gr1 placings (in the Gr1 Doncaster & Gr1 Coolmore Classic). Subsequently sold for $2.7 million as a broodmare at the 2008 Magic Millions National Sale, Divine Madonna's foals to date have included Godolphin winners La Pieta (Gr3 placed) and Sanzio (both by Redoute's Choice).
