MAKYBE DIVA: THE CHAMPION BECOMES A LEGEND
110 years later, this land, of which Mark Twain spoke, was truly fired with absolute jubilation like never before, as one horse stopped the nation - for the third time in a row. This is a story about hope, triumph and how MAKYBE DIVA became the greatest mare in Australian thoroughbred racing history, a horse to possibly rival the mightiest of all, the immortal PHAR LAP. Its telling embraces the richness of what the Melbourne Cup really means to all Australians. It's the stuff about the heartbeats and the heroes in those long corridors of turf on that first Tuesday in November. But more importantly it's about something that became... simply magic.
Where MAKYBE DIVA came from and how she got there, is a journey of excitement and emotion. And now for the first time, those who travelled with her, relive those moments of association and mateship, tell the stories and share the memories of what really happened along the way...MAKYBE DIVA..."When the Champion became the Legend".
MAKYBE DIVA was a wonder mare, winning almost every prestigious group race on the Australian calendar - Sydney Cup, Australian Cup, BMW Classic, Cox Plate, Turnbull Stakes, Memsie Stakes, Queen Elizabeth Stakes and of course the three consecutive Melbourne Cups. This is her story complete with interviews of her closest connections: Tony Santic, David Hall, Lee Freedman and Glen Boss.
