San Bella was sold to Alida Davis of MA in 2008.

San Bella was rated Premium and Site Champion at the Oldenburg Inspection in Findlay, Ohio on August 18, 2007.  San Bella follows in the footsteps of the MarKim Farms’ award winning Champion Colts: Reagan, Wunderstern, and Impromptu.

The Oldenburg Inspection Committee stated that she is of great quality and if born in Germany, she would have been selected for their esteemed Elite Auction in Vechta, Germany.  Out of the hundreds of foals born in Germany, only a select few are invited to the auction.  San Bella stands up to the best in Germany!

Reagan
