Led by two new stakes horses and three impressive winners on dirt, turf, and all-weather surfaces, Perfect Soul (Ire) had an excellent weekend across North America July 10 & 11.

His first new stakes horse was Charles Fipke’s Thislilsoulofmine, who placed in the $150,000 Onatrio Damsel S. at Woodbine in her second career start. The 3-year-old filly, who was foaled and raised at Darby Dan, is out of Mr. Fipke’s impeccably bred Kingmambo mare, Thislillightofmine, and from the direct family of Belmont (G1)-winning filly Rags to Riches and world-record setting Broodmare of the Year Better Than Honour.

Perfect Soul’s second new stakes horse was Soul Custody, who ran third in the $50,000 Washington’s Lottery S. over the main track at Emerald Downs. The 3-year-old filly is out of another well-bred mare, the Halo matron Halo’s Gleam, a half sister to Desert Wine. She has won or placed 4 times in 7 starts racing for Perfect Soul Brothers LLC.

On July 11, Perfect Shirl made it back-to-back wins at Woodbine, when she took a $61,257 allowance over the main track. The homebred 3-year-old out of Mr. Fipke’s millionaire Grade 1 winner Lady Shirl, gave weight to the entire field, and boosted her record to 5-2-1-1 and $80,557.

On the other side of the continent, Hog’s Hollow dominated a $43,200 maiden special weight at Hollywood Park, drawing off to a 3 ¼-length victory over 1 1/8 miles on the turf course. He has now earned nearly $80,000 for owner/breeder Derrick Fisher.

Staying on the West Coast, 3-year-old Soul Patch won her 3rd race in 7 starts, with a 4-length victory at a flat mile over the dirt at Emerald Downs. Bred by Mr. Fipke, she also races for Perfect Soul Brothers.

Perfect Soul has now sired 62 winners and over $2.6 million from his first two crops. He is the leading sire by Sadler’s Wells at stud in Kentucky.
