Those who witnessed Makybe Diva’s “threepeat” of Melbourne Cup wins would have experienced flashbacks on watching La Amistad’s win Flemington’s other “two miler”, the listed Andrew Ramsden Stakes (3200m) on Saturday.

La Amistad is a three-quarter sister to the champion stayer, carries the same colours, looks similar and after sitting back last, she swept into the race on the home turn just like her famous sibling.
