A Filly for The Diva

Makybe Diva’s second foal has arrived — it’s a filly this time. The Fusaichi Pegasus filly was born at Segenhoe Stud in Australia’s Hunter Valley and it seems that mother and baby are both doing very well. Plans to head to Coolmore for a visit with her first-choice stallion from last year, Encosta De Lago, are confirmed. After that, The Diva will head back to the property named in her hono(u)r outside Melbourne to kick back with her current foal and await the arrival of number three.

Closer to home, it seems that the Big Brown/Philly Park ‘thing’ is back on the table — for the right price, that is. It seems odd that the course was previously ‘not to their liking‘ — one can only assume that the turf fairies visited overnight and fixed whatever problem might have been a concern. My fantasy version of that event would see Hard Spun pulled out of retirement, but I suspect the lineup will be more along the lines of PA-bred non-winners of two and the big horse.

That counts, right?
