Eblouissante Scratched Prior to Second Start

Eblouissante, a half-sister to 2010 Horse of the Year Zenyatta, was scratched Saturday at Betfair Hollywood Park, less than 30 minutes prior to what was to be her second start.

An impressive debut winner Nov. 16 for owner-breeder Eric Kronfeld, the 3-year-old daughter of Bernardini and the prolific broodmare Vertigineux banged her hip leaving the receiving barn, losing some of her hide in the process, according to the Betfair Hollywood Park stewards.

This necessitated Eblouissante’s declaration from the afternoon’s fourth, an optional claimer at 1 1/16 miles over Cushion Track. The Kentucky bred was 1-9 when the scratch was announced.

Whether or not she misses any training remains to be seen, according to John Shirreffs, who also conditioned Zenyatta during a brilliant career that included 19 wins in 20 starts and earnings of $7,304,580.

“She bruised her hip,’’ said Shirreffs. “It’s hard to say (if she’ll miss any training). We’ll have to see how she is when she walks out of the stall (Sunday).’’
