Eblouissante Arrives in Shirreffs Barn

Eblouissante, a 2-year-old half sister to retired Horse of the Year Zenyatta, is making herself at home in the John Shirreffs stable, which had been home to Zenyatta for more than four years.


Eblouissante, a dark bay or brown filly by Bernardini out of the Kris S. mare Vertigineux, arrived here Thursday.


“She’s been galloping,” said assistant trainer Michelle Jensen. “She doesn’t look like Zenyatta, but she’s a big elegant filly and she’s got the presence, that royal aura.”


 

U R ALL THAT I AM WORKS FOR FRAN’S VALENTINE DEFENSE


U R All That I Am, who won the Fran’s Valentine Stakes by 2 ¼ lengths last year, seeks to become the first repeat winner in the 16-year history of the race May 22.


U R All That I Am, a 5-year-old chestnut mare in the Jerry Hollendorfer stable, worked four furlongs in 49 seconds here Sunday.


Winner of the Work The Crowd Stakes on the Golden Gate Fields turf in her last start on April 23, U R All That I Am has won 10 of 24 starts and earned $404,529 for owner-breeder Tommy Town Thoroughbreds.


Rafael Bejarano has the call in the $70,000-added Fran’s Valentine for California-bred fillies and mares at one mile on turf.


Trainer Art Sherman said that he is on the fence with Ultra Blend between the Fran’s Valentine and the Milady Handicap the previous day.


Others under Fran’s Valentine consideration include Logical Single (Chantal Sutherland), Jax El (Alonso Quinonez) and Ruffled Feathers, who worked six furlongs in 1:14.60 Sunday.

It will be difficult to be as good as she has been hyped to be

Is this Filly two or three?
I like your optimism Tim
NEWS FLASH a nine year old mare breaks maiden at first asking
I think she is better than we think and it seems like there staying humble. There are so many great's in this bloodline, when i went back eight generations. This horse will be Revitalizing
Its good that she's making herself at home(: but that would be terriable if she wasnt as good as we think she is.
