Eblouissante, a half-sister to the great Zenyatta, is entered in a first-level optional $40,000 claimer in Saturday's fourth race at Betfair Hollywood Park.

Eblouissante, a 3-year-old half-sister to 2010 Horse of the Year Zenyatta, is entered for her first start against winners in Saturday’s fourth race at Betfair Hollywood Park, a first-level optional $40,000 claimer over 1 1/16 miles.

Trained by John Shirreffs for breeder Eric Kronfeld, Eblouissante will be heavily favored in a field of five that includes Glowing Spirit, Includethecat, The Only Key and Toomanytomatoes.

Eblouissante, who is by Bernardini, won her debut in a maiden race over 1 1/16 miles by 4 1/4 lengths on Nov. 16. Ridden by Corey Nakatani, Eblouissante closed from seventh in a field of eight, pulling away in the final sixteenth.

Nakatani has the mount again on Eblouissante on Saturday.
