Two-tone was a physically superior athlete. She had incredible endurance and the most flawless gait a sled dog can have. She was created on the 1998 Yukon Quest trail with Brenda Mackey after two leaders Camaro and Sky bred repeatedly along the duration of the race. Two-tone ran her first mid-distance race as a 2 year old, the Nushagak Classic 275 in Brenda's winning team. A month later she finished her first Iditarod in Rick's 6th place finishing team.
