Indian Blessing, one of Bob Baffert's two charges to win a 2007 Eclipse Award, extended her unbeaten record to five straight with a stylish one-length victory over Proud Spell in the $200,000 Silverbulletday Stakes (G3) at Fair Grounds on Feb. 9.
 
The speedy filly simply ran the Silverbulletday cast off their feet, stalking beautifully down the backstretch before taking command heading into the far turn. Just like in her other four races prior to the Silverbulletday, Indian Blessing opened up straightening for home and never looked back. She defeated Proud Spell again, as that filly was also the runner-up to Indian Blessing in the Breeders' Cup.
 
The 3-year-old homebred filly by Indian Charlie broke her maiden at Saratoga last August and has since won four graded stakes, including capping her championship campaign in 2007 with an impressive wire-to-wire win in the $2 million Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies (G1). In her first start of 2008, she won the Santa Ynez (G2) over Cushion Track at Santa Anita on Jan. 13.
 
Indian Blessing has been favored in each of her five races, and was odds-on for the Silverbulletday, paying $3.40. The filly's earnings for her owners and breeders, Patti and Hal J. Earnhardt III, have soared to $1,567,200. She received a 99 Beyer Speed Figure for the performance in 1:43.75 for 1 1/16 miles, which was nearly a second faster than Pyro ran in winning the Risen Star Stakes later in the card.
