Eclair De Lune Settles In at Arlington

Richard Duchossois’ Éclair De Lune, winner of the 2010 Beverly D. Stakes, walked the shedrow Wednesday morning a day after arriving from California.  Hall of Fame conditioner Ron McAnally was with his mare today and could not be happier with her ship. 

 

“She is really an ideal shipper,” McAnally said, “she never stopped eating.” 

 

Away from the races since a sixth in May’s Grade I Gamely at Hollywood Park, McAnally has given the 5-year-old German-bred seven stamina-building works over the turf in Southern California. 

 

“Her last three works have been around the dogs at Del Mar, and while they are recorded at seven furlongs, she was really even running farther than that on the outside of the course.” 

 

Off the board in her five starts since last year’s win, but beaten just two lengths in the Grade I Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Turf, McAnally is hopeful that his mare clicks in familiar surroundings. 

 

“We’ll take her around the paddock and hope she remembers the success from here, and obviously, she favors this course, McAnally said.  “It was special to do it once and a second win would be incredible.”
