Eblouissante, a 3-year-old half sister to champion racemare Zenyatta, will make her career debut Nov. 16 in the fourth race at Betfair Hollywood Park.

The daughter of Bernardini   out of the Kris S. mare Vertigineux had her final breeze in preparation for that start Nov. 11, going a quick five furlongs in :59 1/5 on the all weather track at Hollywood for trainer John Shirreffs. The move was second-fastest among 66 sent the distance on the day.  

Eblouissante was bred in Kentucky by Eric Kronfeld, who also bred Zenyatta, a daughter of Street Cry, out of Vertigineux under the name Maverick Productions. Kronfeld retains ownership of Eblouissante, who will break from post three going 1 1/16 miles on Hollywood's Cushion Track track with Corey Nakatani aboard. She will race without Lasix.
 
Estimated post time for the fourth at Hollywood, a $45,000 maiden special weight that has drawn a field of eight sophomore fillies, is 2:02 p.m. PST. All runners carry 121 pounds.
