She's a Devil Due, a grade II winner at Keeneland who placed in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies (gr. I), was euthanized Dec. 4 because of complications from colic. The 5-year-old daughter of Devil His Due out of the Fappiano mare Fapulous Star was owned by Central Kentuckians Mike Goetz and Brian Griggs and had been in and out of equine hospitals since experiencing difficulties while delivering a Gone West colt in May. The youngster is kept at Mill Ridge Farm near Lexington. She's a Devil Due was not in foal at the time of her death.
Goetz and Griggs bought She's a Devil Due for $30,000 with money secured from second-mortgaging their homes. She's a Devil Due won her first four starts as a 2-year-old in 2000, including the Walmac International Alcibiades Stakes (gr. II) at Keeneland and the Top Flight Stakes at Arlington Park. She then ran third in the Juvenile Fillies.
As a 3-year-old, She's a Devil finished third in the 2001 Fair Grounds Oaks (gr. II) and unplaced in the Ashland Stakes (gr. I) at the Keeneland spring meeting. She was retired shortly after the Ashland because of minor injuries and bred to Seattle Slew. She produced a filly the following year.
Bred by Mike Sloan, She's a Devil Due won four of seven races and earned $533,820 for trainer Kenneth McPeek.
