Productive weekend for Perfect Soul
RSS Feeds Monday, July 20, 2009
Perfect Soul had multiple winners the weekend of July 17-19 to go along with the emergence of stakes-placed juvenile Perfect Lou, who was third in Saturday’s $50,000 Minstrel S. – the first of three Breeders’ Cup prep stakes for 2-year-olds on the turf this summer at Louisiana Downs.

Perfect Lou, who broke his maiden at first asking in May at Lone Star Park, made a successful switch to the grass in the Minstrel, rallying late after breaking poorly in the five-furlong dash. The performance should set him up well for the next stakes in the series – the one-mile $50,000 Donnie Wilhite Memorial S. August 15. The final leg of the series is the one-mile $100,000 Happy Ticket Breeders’ Cup S. Sept. 19, which serves as a “Win and You’re In” automatic berth to the $1 million Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf at Santa Anita.

Perfect Shower and Borgatello became Perfect Soul’s latest maiden winners on July 17 & 18, respectively. Both racing in Canada, Perfect Shower took to the Polytrack at Woodbine to win by a decisive 4 ½ lengths, while Borgatello made a professional debut at Hastings Park, rallying from the back of the pack to win at first asking.
