Makybe Sister Starts Cups Campaign
La Amistad (Redoute's Choice-Tugela, by Riverman) begins her campaign to emulate famous half-sister Makybe Diva at Hawkesbury today. Searching for four wins on the trot, La Amistad last raced in late May when she won the Listed WJ McKell Cup in Sydney. Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has at $2.80 for the Rowley Mile this afternoon, and has also priced her as a $17 chance for the Melbourne Cup Cup. "La Amistad is only lightly raced, but she's an exciting type and all eyes will be on her at Hawkesbury. It would be great if she could follow in her legendary sister's hoof prints and if she races well she'll probably firm in Cup betting,'' noted sportsbet.com.au's Christian Jantzen. Coup Ay Tee and I'm Imposing, from the powerful Chris Waller yard, share the second line of Rowley Mile betting on $6.00.
