Eblouissante Escapes Serious Injury at Hollywood Park

Eblouissante, who was scratched from Saturday’s fourth race following an incident in the receiving barn, has apparently avoided serious injury.
The 3-year-old half-sister to 2010 Horse of the Year Zenyatta appeared fine Sunday, according to trainer John Shirreffs.
“She’s good this morning,” said a relieved Shirreffs.  “It was a contusion or abrasion.  It took some hair off and it’s bruised.  We’re treating it topically now.  We iced it about four or five times (Saturday). She’s walking good on it so we’re going to take her out and train her and see how she handles it.”
Shirreffs explained how the accident happened.  “The horses go to the receiving barn and the man says put your horses in the stalls,’’ he said. “They come out of the stalls in post position order, and sometimes they get a little anxious because they see the horse leaving in front of them.  Sometimes they want to come out of the door a little more on the muscle than they should.  She didn’t jump through the door or anything, she just wiggled through the side and leaned a thousand pounds into her hip on the edge of the door.  She bruised it pretty good.”
“I called the vet over because when she came out of the door, she didn’t want to put her foot down.  She bruised it, so it was stinging her a little bit.  We walked her a couple of steps and she wasn’t walking properly.  That’s when I asked the vet to come over and take a look at her and said to scratch her.”

That's a pretty nice work for her, she hasn't been much of a morning horse usually
On December 21, Eblouissante handily worked 5F in a minute flat (6/36) at BHP.
Trixierhammer, don't let the disguise fool you! It is Zenyatta with blinkers on, duh! Glad to see her back racing. -LIKIN SPARKS, LOL.
Happy to hear it wasn't anything too serious. Love this girl.
