MGSW & MGISP Mean Mary (Scat Daddy–Karlovy Vary, by Dynaformer) has been retired from racing. Mary Venezie, who works for owner/breeder Alex G. Campbell, Jr., made the announcement on Twitter Friday.

“With heavy hearts, Team Campbell, Graham Motion and Herringswell Stable have decided to retire our girl, Mean Mary,” the tweet stated. “She ran a great race and we had so much fun cheering her on. We are very sad, but we are looking to the future and what is best for her.”

Earning her black-type badge in the 2020 GIII La Prevoyante S. at Gulfstream, Mean Mary followed suit with victories in the GIII Orchid S. in Hallandale and GII New York S. at Belmont. A neck second behind champion Rushing Fall (More Than Ready) in Saratoga’s GI Diana S. last term, she was off the board in the GI Breeders’ Cup F/M Turf at Keeneland.

Opening 2021 with a victory in Pimlico’s GIII Gallorette S. May 15, Mean Mary defended her title in the New York June 4 and finished second behind Santa Barbara (Ire) (Camelot {GB}) in the GI Beverly D. S. at Arlington Aug. 14. The Graham Motion trainee retires with a record of 12-7-33-0 and earnings of $1,086,270.
