From the family of NZ Horse of The Year UNCLE REMUS, COSSACK PRINCE (Joint 2nd Australiasian 4yo Classification (2100m+)), HAPPY ZERO winner of over HK$12 million (2nd in the Gr.1 H.K Mile) and Gr.1 Oaks winning filly HEAVENLY BODY.

A speedy mare winning 4 races herself up to 1100m. Belista won her Maiden by 5 lengths and broke 2 track records in career.

Straight mare that has only been served the once with a striking colt.

No problems with foaling or nursing.

Easy to catch & float.

Her colt is of lovely nature and build.

Her racing career was not a true indication of her ability. E.I combined with an incident with her forehead delayed her beginning on the track.
Although they were only country wins she broke 2 track records and won her maiden by over 5 lengths. A 2nd at the Sunshine Coast. She also won a trial at Newcastle.
