She's a Devil Due, winning the Alcibiades at Keeneland as a juvenile.
She's A Devil Due, winner of last year's Walmac International Alcibiades Stakes (gr. II) at Keeneland, has been retired due to nagging minor injuries, according to her trainer, Ken McPeek.
The then-2-year-old caused quite a stir on Alcibiades day last October 15. Her owners, Mike Goetz and Brian Griggs, work at the Toyota automotive plant in nearby Georgetown, Ky., and it seemed the entire assembly line assembled in the infield for a wild celebration after the daughter of Devil His Due captured her fourth straight race. Goetz and Griggs took out second mortgages on their homes to finance their purchase of She's A Devil Due, and she rewarded them by earning $533,820 in her seven-race career, which included four wins, two of them in stakes.
She's A Devil Due followed up her Alcibiades triumph by running third in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies (gr. I) at Churchill Downs. She kicked off her 2001 campaign with a third in the Fair Grounds Oaks (gr. II) and then finished seventh in her final start in the Ashland (gr. I) at Keeneland.
Instead of waiting out the injuries, the decision was made to breed the bay filly this year, reportedly to either Seattle Slew or Deputy Minister.
