The next period of Colista's life is uncertain. Colista left racing and moved to Polo. At some point, from the time Colista left racing to around 1990 or so, Colista and Harry met and she moved to Hopkinton, New Hampshire where Harry spoiled her until his death in 2004. I adopted Colista after Harry's passing.

Colista was not a great racehorse, but she was my racehorse, and those of you who have owned a racehorse know how I feel. Colista will always be a champion in my heart.
