Blind Luck was purchased for $11,000 as a yearling at the Fasig-Tipton Kentucky Select Sale of 2008 and is now owned by her trainer: Jerry Hollendorfer, as well as the Mark DeDomenico and John Carver racing partnership.

Blind Luck won four of her six career juvenile starts. Two of her wins were in Grade 1 stakes races: the Oak Leaf Stakes and the Hollywood Starlet Stakes. She also placed third in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies, and second in the Grade One Del Mar Debutante Stakes to Mi Sueno.

3 Year Old Racing Season 2010

Las Virgenes Stakes

Blind Luck made her 3-year-old debut a winning one in the Grade 1 Las Virgenes Stakes where unleashed a furious run to win by a nose.

Santa Anita Oaks

In the $250,000 Santa Anita Oaks, Blind Luck closed well but was swung to the inside rather than the customary outside and she could't quite get there, coming in third.

Fantasy Stakes

In the Grade II Fantasy Stakes on April 3rd she won convincingly as a come-from-behind favorite winning by 2½ lengths.

Kentucky Oaks

The 136 Kentucky Oaks is set to take place on April 30th 2010 and is run on Churchill Downs' traditional dirt course, where Blind Luck goes into the Oaks off a 2½ -length victory in the Grade II Fantasy Stakes, she is listed as a 6-5 morning-line favorite in a field of 14 and will break from post 5 in the 1-1/8-mile Oaks with regular jockey Rafael Bejarano aboard. In the 136 Kentucky Oaks, the favorite Blind Luck came home strong to catch Evening Jewel at the wire to win the Oaks. Her final time in the race was 1:50.70 for the one and one eighth of a mile race.

Blind Luck returned to racing in the Hollywood Oaks in the first week in June. Unfortunately she was beaten by Switch when unable to catch her in the stretch.
