Redoute's Half To Makybe Makes It A Double
At yesterday's Bendigo Cup meeting, promising stayer in the making, La Amistad, backed up her most recent Ballarat Maiden win with an authoritative victory over 2200m. With big shoes to fill, the 4YO mare is a Redoute's Choice half-sister to triple Gr1-winning Melbourne Cup heroine Makybe Diva (Desert King-Tugela, by Riverman), but now has 2 wins from her first 5 starts. Passed in at the 2011 Inglis Sydney Easter Sale by breeders Makybe who raced her famous sister, La Amistad also has two placings to her credit and has improved as she has been stepped up in distance.
