On May 12, 2021, we had to say “Goodbye” to our beautiful Mephista. She was a granddaughter of Secretariat. She was the daughter of Devil His Due (who made almost $4-million on the track) and ASKMYSECRETARY by Secretariat. She had eight babies who all raced. Mephista herself raced at Churchill Downs, Keeneland, and Santa Anita.
When Mephista was retired as a brood mare, Dennis Miller brought her to us from California. She had six amazing years in Arizona, half of them in Cornville with Michael and MaryAnn in a beautiful setting with a pasture which is so fitting of a mare of her stature.
Her heart was giving out which caused several other problems so we were kind to let her go.
It was humbling and an honor to have her in our lives.
RIP Sweet Mephista!
