Eblouissante Making Long Awaited Return July 20
Boom US mare Eblouissante (Bernardini-Vertigineux, by Kris S), a half-sister to champion Street Cry mare Zenyatta, will return to racetrack competition later this month during Saratoga's summer meet which kicks off on July 19, reports bloodhorse.com. The 4YO Eblouissante is undefeated in two career starts but hasn't raced since winning at Santa Anita Park on January 17. Trainer John Shirreffs reports the well-related mare is progressing nicely in the lead up to her return. "She has grown a lot and has put on a significant amount of weight, so I'm really happy with the way she has developed over the last month. She looks strong."
