Soul Custody now twice stakes placed in 2010
RSS Feeds Sunday, August 15, 2010
Soul Custody, a 3-year-old daughter of Perfect Soul (IRE), got her second stakes placing of the year with a third-place finish in the $75,000 Washington Oaks at Emerald Downs on Aug. 14. The filly had previously finished third in the Washington Lottery H. at the same track on July 11.

Perfect Soul now has five stakes horses in 2010. He was champion turf male at age five and had a particular fondness for the Keeneland turf course, winning both the Shadwell Keeneland Turf Mile (G1) and Maker's Mark Mile (G2) at the Lexington oval. He is the sire of the Canadian Classic winner Perfect Shower, who was part of his first crop of foals in 2006. He has nine yearlings cataloged in the upcoming Keeneland September yearling sale.

Soul Custody was always prominent in the Washington Oaks. She tracked in fourth for most of the way in the nine furlong event, and was making her move when she had to check near the top of the stretch, but came on again to get the show spot.

Soul Custody was bred by Darby Dan client Charles Fipke, who stands both Perfect Soul (Ire) and the young sire Tale of Ekati at the Kentucky nursery. Soul Custody is out of Halo's Gleam, who is a half-sister to Toyota Blue Grass (G1) and Haskell Invitational (G1) winner Menifee.
