I’m certainly no expert on horses but it appeared that she used too much energy before the race. She was fighting coming out of the paddock and wound up doing Dressage steps in place… which reminded me of Zenyatta. From the info I’ve read, it appears that she has the ability but not the discipline in spite of great trainers, jockeys and exercisers. Hope she keeps racing though because just looking at her makes me happy.
Confirmed by Equibase - Eblouissante is in the second race on the 13th @ SA with jockey M E Smith.
