Does the author have exclusive rights to Makybe Diva and why is this the first book to intimately reference her?

No. Various arrangements have been established between Mr. Tony Santic (manager of the family syndicate that owns the mare) and the Victoria Racing Club, covering the promotion of Makybe Diva.

A special arrangement was struck between the author and Mr. Santic to enable the writing and publishing of the mare’s testimonial chapter in the Blood the Soil the Gold.

To our knowledge this is the first publication to include the profile and story of this champion race mare, and with the addition of intimate ‘post-retirement’ paddock photographs taken in May 2006 and the author’s own tribute in the form of a ballad, this chapter can be considered one of the ‘collectors items’ within the book as a whole.
