Zenyatta won first-out at 6 1/2 furlongs over the cushion track with an 87 Beyer en route to becoming one of the most beloved horses in memory. *Zenyatta's little half-sister, EBLOUISSANTE, made a fine debut at Betfair Hollywood Park last week.  Equipped with blinkers, Eblouissante, by champion Bernardini, rallied from the back of the pack to score at 1 1/16 miles with an 85 Beyer Speed Figure.  The sophomore filly is the fourth debut winner foaled by Vertigineux and seems destined for stakes races down the road.

Edgar Prado didn't have a mount at the Breeders' Cup, but the Hall of Famer can still ride with the best of them.

Out of all the excellent Breeders' Cup races, I believe that GROUPIE DOLL's Filly and Mare Sprint was the absolute finest.
