Grade 2 winner St Trinians, whose shining moment was when she gave
Zenyatta a scare in the Grade 1 Vanity Handicap in 2010, has been
retired from racing, trainer Mike Mitchell said Tuesday.
St Trinians won eight races and $440,758 from 19 starts, including Grade
2 victories in the Santa Maria Handicap at Santa Anita in 2010 and
Milady Handicap at Hollywood Park in 2011. She won the restricted
Adoration Stakes in her most recent start Sept. 4 at Del Mar and was
aiming toward the Grade 1 Spinster on Oct. 9 at Keeneland.
But after a five-furlong workout Sept. 24, the 6-year-old mare showed signs of wear that made retirement the best option.
"She showed up with some ankle fluid, and it's the same ankle I've had trouble with in the past," Mitchell said.
