Eblouissante, a 4-year-old half-sister to 2010 Horse of the Year
Zenyatta, may have her stakes debut postponed after being diagnosed with
a bruised foot following a win in an optional claimer last month.
Trainer John Shirreffs said that Eblouissante recently resumed
galloping after a brief break. He was unsure whether Eblouissante could
start in the $300,000 Santa Margarita Invitational over 1 1/8 miles on
“I think we’ll have to wait and see how she works,” Shirreffs said.
