Wasted Tears experienced her best season in 2010, winning the John C. Mabee Stakes (gr. IIT), the Jenny Wiley Stakes (gr. IIT), the Ouija Board Distaff Handicap (gr. IIIT), and the Honey Fox Stakes (gr. IIIT). She finished second in that year’s Matriarch Stakes (gr. IT).
Wasted Tears also won the Ouija Board in 2009 and this year, setting a course record in the ’09 running. She was retired with 12 wins from 22 starts and earnings of $941,463.
Foaled at the late Bruce Hundley’s Saxony Farm near Lexington, Wasted Tears is boarded at Jeff and Chiquita Reddoch’s Stonehaven Steadings, which is a part of the former Saxony acreage.
