Newark, Del., July 13, 2011 — The California invader Blind Luck, last year’s 3-year-old filly champion, arrived at Delaware Park at approximately 4 p.m. today for her engagement in the $750,000 Grade II Delaware Handicap. The Kentucky-bred conditioned by Jerry Hollendorfer is slated to square off against the leading filly and mare in the country this year, Havre de Grace, and the defending Delaware Handicap champion, Life At Ten, in the mile-and-a-quarter filly and mare summer classic this Saturday.
In her final workout for the Delaware Handicap at her home base of Hollywood Park, the 4-year-old daughter Pollard’s Vision went four furlongs handily in :48.20 yesterday.
“We blew her out yesterday and today was just a walk day, so we will probably just jog a little bit tomorrow and stand in the gate,” said trainer Jerry Hollendorfer. “She shipped fine. I was not expecting any problems with her shipping because she is a pretty good shipper.”
Hollendorfer plans to arrive at Delaware Park on Friday.
