Living up to her name, My Perfect Ten, a 5-year-old Perfect Soul mare, rolled to an easy victory in the $50,000 Ellis Park Turf S. on Saturday.

With Roberto Morales aboard, My Perfect Ten was fifth in the early going of the 1 1/16-mile turf event. Swinging three wide at the three-quarter mark, the eventual winner struck the front a the furlong pole and quickly drew off in the late stages to finish 3 1/4 lengths ahead of Run a Risk to get the distance in a fleet 1:40.89 over firm going.

“We were able to break and get a good spot,” winning trainer Stephen Lyster said. “The few horses we expected to go to the lead did. (Jockey Roberto) Morales set her up perfect. He used her a little bit and had her set up perfect. She came out (of the final turn) wide and really finished.”

My Perfect Ten was bred by her owners, the Cudney Stables, who only recently turned her over to Lyster. The mare now has won 5 of 18 lifetime starts and earned $245,743. Her dam Deli Cat has been a remarkable producer, with all eight of her starters winning multiple races, and seven of those earning in excess of $100,000.

Perfect Soul, who stood the 2013 for $7,500 LFS&N at Darby Dan, is the sire of 2013 Kentucky Derby (G1) runner-up Golden Soul.
