Trained by Tom Proctor, Snow Top Mountain contested the Modesty in foal to Blame . She had been bred to the Claiborne Farm stallion earlier this year.
Snow Top Mountain won three stakes including this year's Suwannee River Stakes (gr. IIIT) at Gulfstream Park and the Edward P. Evans All Along Stakes (gr. IIIT) at Colonial Downs. She also captured last year's Kentucky Cup Ladies Turf Stakes.
Snow Top Mountain placed in seven stakes. She finished second in six of them including the Garden City Stakes (gr. IT) at Belmont Park.
Snow Top Mountain retires with a record of 7-8-2 from 24 starts and earnings of $525,303. The mare will reside at Hunter's Brownwood Farm near Nicholasville, Ky.
Out of the Storm Cat mare Motokiks, Snow Top Mountain is a half sister to Hunter's graded stakes winner Keertana, who was retired this year and is in foal to Blame's sire, Arch.
