RISING STAR BLIND LUCK HEADS GR. I LAS VIRGENES
Jerry Hollendorfer’s emerging superstar filly Blind Luck is listed as definite for Saturday’s Gr. I, $250,000 Las Virgenes Stakes at one mile. Idle since trouncing six rivals by seven lengths in the Gr. I Hollywood Starlet at 1 1/16 miles on Dec. 20, the 3-year-old Kentucky-bred daughter of Pollard’s Vision will once again be ridden by Rafael Bejarno.
On the strength of her authoritative win in the Gr. I Oak Leaf Stakes on Oct. 4, Blind Luck was the 7-2 favorite in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies at Oak Tree on Nov. 6. She finished a troubled third, beaten three-quarters of a length. Her lifetime record stands at 4-1-1 from six starts.
The Gr. II Strub Stakes and the Gr. II Robert B. Lewis Stakes are also scheduled to be run Saturday at Santa Anita.
