Include Me Out will be sent to Kentucky to be bred.

Two-time Grade 1 winner Include Me Out has been retired after two disappointing performances in recent months. Owner Samantha Siegel made the announcement Monday via Twitter.

Trained by Ron Ellis, Include Me Out won the Grade 1 Santa Margarita Invitational at Santa Anita and the Grade 1 Clement Hirsch Stakes at Del Mar in 2012. She was third in the Breeders’ Cup Ladies’ Classic at Santa Anita last year.

This year, Include Me Out had 1 win in 3 starts, the minor Desert Stormer Handicap at Betfair Hollywood Park. She was later eighth in the Clement Hirsch Stakes at Del Mar and seventh in the Zenyatta Stakes at Santa Anita on Sept. 28.

Via Twitter, Siegel wrote that Include Me Out underwent recent physical tests that showed no ailments, but that the 5-year-old mare will be sent to Kentucky to be bred. By Include, Include Me Out won 7 of 16 starts and earned $956,530.
