Bella Bessa




On November 6, 2020, we took 22 year old Bella up to Cornville to help her former pal, 23 year old Mephista.


Mephista is the daughter of Devil His Due (who made almost $4-million on the track) and Ask My Secretary (daughter of Secretariat). One of Mephista’s owners passed away which caused her (and her other owner) to be very sad. Then her companion horse left and Mephista stopped eating.


Concerned for Mephista’s health, we were called and brought up Bella. Mephista and Bella instantly reunited and ate and drank water together.
