A daughter of Axworthy and Sally Simmons, Hamburg Belle was foaled in 1902, bred by E. T. Bedford of Brooklyn, New York. She was placed in the hands of W. J. Andrews and in 1908 won the Charter Oak Stake, trotting in 2:05, 2:06, and 2:04 3/4, a three-heat record at that time. The next year she beat Uhlan at North Randall in 2:01 1/4, 2:01 3/4, a two-heat record that stood for fifteen years. Hamburg Belle was sold by John E. Madden to H. M. Hanna of Cleveland for $50,000. In a return match with Uhlan she was defeated and that fall, on November 10, 1909, died suddenly of pneumonia.
