Champion Perfect Soul (Ire) sired a Classic winner from his first crop and now a Championship contender in his second.

With the Sovereign Award Finalists just announced January 19th, Charles Fipke’s homebred Perfect Shirl will face off against older distaffers Mekong Melody (Ire) and Miss Keller (Ire) in the race for Champion Turf Mare in Canada.

A Graded stakes performer from coast to coast, Perfect Shirl made eight starts in 2010, winning or placing six times. The bay filly streaked to three consecutive wins in Canada and the U.S., culminating in a superb victory with ears pricked in the $150,000 Lake George S. (G2) at Saratoga. The 3-year-old filly also ran third in the Del Mar Oaks (G1) to Grade 1 winner and Eclipse Award Finalist Evening Jewel, and Grade 1 winner Harmonious.

Foaled and raised at Darby Dan, Perfect Shirl has earned $209,223 for Mr. Fipke. She is out of Grade 1 winner/multiple Grade 1 producer Lady Shirl, and is a half-sister to multiple Grade 1 winner Shakespeare, and multiple 2010 Graded stakes winner Lady Shakespeare.

Perfect Soul has now sired nine stakes horses and earners of more than $3,600,000 from his first two crops. He will stand the 2011 season at Darby Dan for $15,000, due when foal stands and nurses.
