Beautiful Bells, by The Moor-Minnehaha, was the best known foundation mare at Leland Stanford's Palo Alto Farm. She was considered the "premier trotting broodmare of the world." She produced a larger number of fast trotters than any other matron of her time. Beautiful Bells foaled eleven with Standard records and five with records below 2:20. She also had an extraordinary family of potent sons and daughters. It was her son Chimes who was the sire of three of the fastest trotters of their day: The Abbott, The Monk and Fantasy. Beautiful Bells died in 1904 at age thirty-two.
