Great memories of Maybe Diva Stakes day in 2011.
Despite being off the scene with a serious injury for 71 weeks, trainer @NigelBlackiston had great confidence in his grand galloper Littorio leading into the 2011 Makybe Diva Stakes. pic.twitter.com/finc7uANiW

Some good footage of Laurie Bunker leading Littorio around the parade ring. Laurie built such a great rapport with “Arthur”. And the late John van Veenendaal is featured as Littorio flashed home. John was our vet for several years and a great friend, and is still sorely missed.
Littorio is one of several former gallopers that Susanna and I have on our property at Lancefield. Not sure if we look after him, or he looks after us. He is good for our soul.
