La Amistad Wins Listed WJ McKell Cup

Monday, 26th May 2014

At Randwick, Arrowfield Stud's former Australian champion sire Redoute's Choice (Danehill-Shantha's Choice, by Canny Lad) added a black-type success when 4YO mare La Amistad (Redoute's Choice-Tugela, by Riverman) scored by 4-lengths in the $100,000 Listed WJ McKell Cup (2400m) for 3YO+, over 5YO gelding Destiny's Kiss (Power of Destiny-A Fairy's Kiss, by Stravinsky) & 6YO German-bred gelding Secessio (Königstiger-Suisun, by Monsun). This was the first stakes victory for the progressive La Amistad who took her record to 5 wins and 2 placings from 11 starts for $140,530 earnings. La Amistad, a three-quarter sister to champion mare Makybe Diva, was passed in for $725,000 at the 2011 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale and retained to race by Makybe Racing & Breeding and partners.
