Biography: 

The daughter of Adios-Pick Up, Dottie's Pick won in excess of $250,000 in purses, including more than $100,000 in 1956 alone, then a single-year record for a mare. The highlight of her racing career came that same year, when she won a $25,000 match race from Adios Harry. Dottie's Pick was one of the few mares ever to compete successfully in free-for-alls with males. Her racing days over, Dottie's Pick became one of the foundation broodmares of the Armstrong Brothers Farm in Canada. Five of her ten foals were 2:00 horses. Dottie's Pick died in 1980.

 Armstrong Farms, Brampton, Ontario, Canada
