Another horse is headed into retirement. The connections of Include Me Out, dual Grade I winning mare have made the announcement about her retirement on October 14 via a Twitter announcement.
Include Me Out was campaigned by Samantha Siegel’s Jay Em Ess Stable during her racing career. Siegel told The Blood-Horse that the five-year-old Thoroughbred mare is healthy and sound.
The mare is slated to join Siegel’s broodmares at Taylor Made Farm in Nicholasville, Kentucky.
We've had her tested and scanned and she's fine. I look forward to seeing her babies and racing them.
Include Me Out was bred in Kentucky by Brereton Jones. She is by Include, and out of the mare Don't Trick Her by Mazel Trick. She was trained to race by Ron Ellis.
Include Me Out was in the winner’s circle seven times, and also has three seconds, and two thirds out of 16 starts. Her racing career earnings total $956,530.
According to Siegel, Include Me Out’s last two races were lackluster and disappointing. The plans to run her in the Breeders’ Cup were scrapped and the decision was made to retire her. Said Siegel, “She's been good to us...sometimes these mares just decide when they're finished racing."
As a four-year-old, Include Me Out was never out of the money in her seven graded starts. She won the Grade I Santa Margarita Invitational Stakes, and other graded starts.
