Flying Bull

Perfect Bull put in a solid 5/8 of a mile work this morning in preparation for his next start. The colt has exited his recent victories in top form and is thoroughly enjoying himself; in a word, thriving. The colt visits the track three to four days in a row followed by a day of being hand walked. Most horses don't go to the track that often, and then its alternating between days of jogging with the occasional gallop day. Perfect Bull gallops every time. It would be natural to think that he'd tired or bored if not sore. Yet he's just getting stronger and wanting more.

Horses walk from their stables in the morning to the backstretch and enter the track through a gap in the rail to begin their morning exercise. The rider will often allow their mount to stand at that spot for awhile to soak in the atmosphere. This morning as the colt surveyed his surrounding like a field general, his great muscles twitched excitedly in anticipation, yet he stood perfectly still. This colt was born to run, he is a warrior relishing the battle. Watch him fly.
