By: SPORTS NETWORK
Lexington, KY (Sports Network) - Champion filly Blind Luck will be put in the sales ring next month. The four-year-old was voted the 2010 Eclipse Award as champion three-year-old filly.
Keeneland announced Tuesday that Blind Luck will be offered at the November Breeding Stock Sale during session one on Monday, November 7. The filly will be consigned by Taylor Made Sales Agency as agent.
"We are very fortunate to include Blind Luck, one of the best fillies of our generation, in our November sale," said Walt Robertson, Keeneland's vice president of sales. "She's an outstanding champion filly and we are honored to include her in our catalog."
Winner of 13 races, including six Grade I stakes, Blind Luck is currently owned by Mark DeDomenico, John Carver, and Peter Abruzzo and her Hall of Fame trainer Jerry Hollendorfer. In 22 career starts she has earned $3,279,520
"This filly has proven herself beyond a doubt to be one of the top horses over the past two decades," said Hollendorfer. "She has won on different surfaces, on both coasts and against the best fillies in America including Horse of the Year candidate Havre de Grace. Blind Luck is easily the best filly I ever trained. She's special."
This year the filly won the La Troienne, Vanity and Delaware Handicaps. Other major stakes she captured were the Hollywood Starlet, Oak Leaf Stakes, Kentucky Oaks, Alabama and Las Virgenes.
Blind Luck has been withdrawn from consideration for next month's Breeders' Cup Ladies' Classic. The four-year-old finished last in the Lady's Secret Stakes on October 1 after being eased the final furlong at Santa Anita.
The filly will not be the only highly regarded female to be offered at Keeneland's November Sale. Also available will be 2011 Alabama winner Royal Delta, 2010 Delaware Handicap champ Life At Ten, 2010 Hollywood Oaks winner Switch and 2010 Breeders' Cup Ladies' Classic champ Unrivaled Belle.
