For those interested on this horse who has been racing (sparingly) for the last 2-3 years. Some sad news in regards to this. See below (I found this information on another racing forum):

For those that are interested in regards to Makybe Diva's first foal Rockstardom, see below:

ROSEHILL GARDENS – Friday 26 July 2013
The Stewards inquired into the death of Rockstardom in trainer Mr C Waller’s stables on the afternoon on 26 July 2013, when the necropsy report from the University Veterinary Teaching Hospital, Camden, was received. The Stewards found that the gelding’s death was due to an acute cranial base fracture and subdural haematoma of the brain. Racing NSW Senior Official Veterinarian C Suann reported that this type of injury typically occurs when a horse becomes excitable or fractious, rears and falls over backwards, hitting the back of the skull on the ground or possibly a wall.

Bad week for the family. Valkyrie Diva's son Compass is reported to have dropped dead from a heart attack after a trial three days after Rockstardom died. Valkyrie Diva is Makybe's half sister.

A very sad end to the first foal of one of Australia's legendary race mares. Although he was considered a disappointment may be Chris Waller would have found the key to this galloper and now we will never know .
RIP Rockstadom.
