Eblouissante to start Saturday
Updated: December 12, 2012, 6:05 PM ETBloodhorse
A smashing winner in her much anticipated debut last month, Eblouissante, a half sister to 2010 Horse of the Year Zenyatta, will make her second start Dec. 15 at Betfair Hollywood Park. Entered in the fourth race, an allowance/optional claiming event, Eblouissante's presence adds to an already attractive Saturday program that includes the $250,000 Hollywood Turf Cup and the $750,000 CashCall Futurity. Eblouissante will have four opponents in the the Cushion Track event that carries a purse of $48,000 for fillies and mares at 1 1/16 miles. Post time is 12:30 p.m. Saturday.
