Perfect Shower triumphant in Woodbine feature
RSS Feeds Sunday, June 20, 2010
Perfect Shower won the feature on the grass at Woodbine on June 19, the same course where he captured the $500,000 Breeders' S., part of the Canadian Triple Crown, last year. The 4-year-old son of Darby Dan's Perfect Soul (IRE) now has three wins at Woodbine.

The latest victory came in a nine-furlong grassy allowance race. The Charles Fipke homebred was content to sit mid-pack in the field of 10 for the first six furlongs before coming five-wide with a rush into the stretch. He was in command from then on, winning by 1 1/4-lengths without serious pressure. The final time was 1:48.25.

The dark bay or brown colt is out of the stakes-winning mare Showering. She is the dam of three other winners.

Perfect Shower is just one of five winners by his sire in the past four days. Showing off their sire's capabilities at getting versatile runners, the group includes sprint and route winners on the dirt (at Churchill Downs and Emerald Downs); a maiden winner on the synthetic at Woodbine; and a maiden winner on the turf at Colonial Downs.
