Two Trail Sioux, a grade II-winning daughter of Indian Charlie
, has been retired from racing and is booked to Ghostzapper.
Bred by Sam Shepard's Totier Creek Farm, Two Trail Sioux won or placed in 11 of 12 races and earned $664,960 for John D. Gunther and Don Winton. She captured last year's Fleur de Lis Handicap (gr. II) at Churchill Downs and the Bayakoa Stakes at Oaklawn Park.
Five-year-old Two Trail Sioux, who was produced from the Quiet American
mare Quiet Trail, carries a bit of history with her. She was the last mount for Hall of Fame jockey Pat Day, who announced his retirement shortly after riding Two Trail Sioux to a second-place finish in the July 17 Delaware Handicap (gr. II) last year. Two Trail Sioux also placed in the 2005 Personal Ensign Stakes (gr. I).
Gunther, who owns Glennwood Farm near Versailles, Ky., and Winton bought Two Trail Sioux for $55,000 at the 2002 Keeneland September yearling sale from Spendthrift Farm, agent for Totier Creek.
