Blind Luck Purchased for $2.5 Million

Blind Luck wins the 2010 Alabama.
Champion Blind Luck brought $2.5 million at the Keeneland November breeding stock sale. The multiple grade I-winning daughter of Pollard's Vision was consigned as Hip No. 210A by Taylor Made Sales Agency, agent.

Mike Puhich, trainer and director of operations of Mark Dedomenico’s Pegasus Training Center, signed the ticket for Blind Luck on Dedomenico's behalf. Dedomenico owned 50% of the filly during her race career and campaigned her in partnership with trainer Jerry Hollendorfer, John Carver, and Peter Abruzzo. Dedomenico will now keep Blind Luck at his Redmond, Wash-based training facility.

“She had a rough campaign and ran her heart out and we just want to let her be a horse for a little bit, let the smoke clear and then decide who to breed her to,” said Puhich of Blind Luck, who retires from racing with 12 lifetime wins, 10 of which came in graded stakes, and earnings of $3,279,520.

touche....
Part of the problem is that immediately after her bad race, she was announced to be sold. Many of the others you mentioned royal delta etc were always to go to dispersal because of the death of the owners. People may have jumped to the wrong conclusion, but her owners actions led one to a possible bad conclusion.
I couldn't believe all the hateful comments on these racing websites when the decision to sell Blind Luck was made. Not a word about selling Royal Delta, Crisp, Switch, Ultra Blend, Dubawi Heights, Life At Ten etc..... Just comments about how Blind Luck's connections were turning their back on her because of one bad race. How stupid do all you people feel now? After all she is being retired sound as a broodmare and has ended up in a great place, guaranteeing she will have a happy life. Maybe next time all you geniuses will wait to see what happens before you bash other people on these sites. Just maybe.
