Champion Blind Luck is scheduled to be sold at the Keeneland November breeding stock sale. The multiple grade I-winning daughter of Pollard's Vision   will be consigned in Book One as Hip No. 210A by Taylor Made Sales Agency, agent.

The chestnut filly has 12 lifetime wins, 10 of which came in graded stakes, and earnings of $3,279,520. During her sophomore season Blind Luck captured the Las Virgenes, Kentucky Oaks, and Betfair TVG Alabama (all gr. I) en route to earning an Eclipse Award as the 2010 champion 3-year-old female. She also ran second in the Breeders' Cup Ladies' Classic (gr. I).

In six starts this year, Blind Luck has wins in the Vanity Handicap (gr. I), La Troienne Stakes (gr. II), and Delaware Handicap (gr. II). In the 10-furlong Del’ Cap, she defeated Horse of the Year candidate Havre de Grace by a nose.

Hall of Fame trainer Jerry Hollendorfer, who co-owns the 4-year-old filly with Dr. Mark Dedomenico, John Carver, and Peter Abruzzo, said: "This filly has proven herself beyond a doubt to be one of the top horses over the past two decades. She has won on different surfaces, on both coasts and against the best fillies in America including Havre de Grace. Blind Luck is easily the best filly I ever trained. She's special."

Blind Luck was not aimed at this year's Breeders' Cup Ladies' Classic after an unplaced finish in the Lady's Secret Stakes (gr. I) Oct. 1 at Santa Anita.

"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."

Bred in Kentucky by Dr. William A. Baker's Fairlawn Farm, she was acquired by Hollendorfer in a private transaction following a 13 1/4-length triumph in her career debut at Calder Race Course.
