Race of the Week 2017

Eblouissante Could Start Again at BHP

Trainer John Shirreffs reported Sunday that Zenyatta’s half-sister, Eblouissante, emerged from her impressive debut win “fine,” and that the striking black filly could return toward the end of the Autumn meet, which concludes Dec. 16.
 
“We’re hoping to run her back the last week,” said Shirreffs. 
 
Asked about the blinkers she wore first time out, Shirreffs explained that he put them on about two months ago.  “She’s so curious, we noticed she was watching people walk across the infield,’’ he said.
 
The headgear obviously achieved its desired effect, as the Bernardini filly was all business Friday, winning by 4 ½ lengths under jockey Corey Nakatani.

Nayrod, one can only dream! She was sure impressive.
Wow, what a race that was. She's on her way of becoming amazine like her sis. Maybe even better, if that's possible.
