Horse Description:

Very nice filly, well grown, athletic and correct, by the World class stayer and Group 2 Goodwood Cup winning stallion ILLUSTRIOUS BLUE.

Home bred by a small partnership that owned her dam Dynamic Duchess, this filly is trained at Gosford (NSW) by Grant Allard.

Went good at her only two trial starts where she finished 6th and then 3rd before going for a spell. The form out of that trial where she ran 3rd is strong with the winner having won at Port Maquarie, and the second placed horse Wooshka finishing runner up at Hawkesbury, winning twice in the city at Canterbury, and also finishing third at Randwick to the future Group 1 winner D'Argento!

Blueberries kicked off her career with two runs as a late three year old during July, and both runs have shown promise. She'll be much better suited stepping up to distances around the 1600m mark.
