Meanwhile in New Zealand, 7YO mare Keepa Cheval (Keeper-Sheila Cheval, by Mi Preferido) has foaled a filly by multiple Gr1-winning 5YO stallion & NZ Westbury Stud shuttler Makfi (Dubawi-Dhelaal, by Green Desert). Keepa Cheval is a half-sister to New Zealand Horse-of-the-Year and 9-time Gr1 winner (King) Mufhasa who, fittingly, will attempt to make it 10 Gr1s tomorrow-week in the Gr1 Makfi Challenge Stakes at Hawkes Bay. The filly is the 4th foal by Makfi, who stands for NZ$27,500 + GST with no fee payable until 1 June 2013.
