This lovely mare is Bella Dorato, the dam of 2012 Champion Sprinter Trinniberg. She’s shown here at the 2012 Fasig-Tipton November sale, just before she sold to Stonestreet for $460,000. She stood out to me even before I knew who she was because she bounced and danced everywhere she went. I don’t know if that’s just her personality or if she was on her toes because of the constant flow of people through the sales barns, but she had quite a spring to her step.

Trinniberg has retired to Rockridge Stud in Hudson, NY after a rather lackluster year, but he was always one of my favorites on the track. Here’s hoping that he passes on the good looks and speed that mama Bella gave him!
