In three starts this year, Indian Blessing best finish came in the Dubai Golden Shaheen (G1) when she was second to Big City Man. Winless this year, the 2007 American juvenile filly champion has limited time to make an impact on the racetrack as the breeding shed looms. Saturday’s Gallant Bloom Handicap (G2) at Belmont Park offers that chance as Indian Blessing faces a field of six others, including the improving Sara Louise, the last horse to beat Rachel Alexandra. Trainer Bob Baffert reported this week that Indian Blessing is likely to make a start at the Breeders’ Cup following the Gallant Bloom and then race retirement.
