Eblouissante improves to 2-for-2
Eblouissante
PAUL BREEDON SITS ATOP EBLOUISSANTE during her time in Camden when she was being trained by Mickey Preger Jr. at the Camden Training Center.
ARCADIA, Cal. --- Eblouissante, a 4-year-old half sister to the legendary Zenyatta who is also conditioned by John Shirreffs, faced winners for the first time in Thursday’s $58,000 Mojave River Purse at Santa Anita and at odds of 1-2, left little doubt that she has stakes races in her future, winning by 1 ¾ lengths while covering 1 1/16 miles in 1:44.89. Elbouissante, like her dam, Vertigineux, was developed at the barn of Mickey Preger Jr., at the Camden Training Center.Like her near-perfect sister, Eblouissante broke slowly in the five-horse Mojave River, but unlike Zenyatta, showed good tactical speed under Corey Nakatani, as she was just five lengths off pacesetter Folk Dancer and Julien Leparoux midway around the Club House turn. By the time the field hit the top of the stretch, the Kentucky-bred daughter of Bernardini had taken Nakatani to a head advantage over over 44-1 shot Pink Blossom and Alonso Quinonez.
