Sometimes life follows the script, such was the case in the MN Classic. Last year's winner and confirmed front-end speed employed his usual tactics, opening up by one length as the field rounded the first turn. The defender had won the previous edition by thirteen-and-one-half lengths, yet this year's competition included Perfect Bull. Jockey Dean Butler had a measured hold on the MN Derby Champion and that lead was allowed at their discretion. They moved up on even terms through the backstretch, put away their rival by mid-stretch and drew off by an increasing five-and-one-half lengths.
On the heels of victorious performances this year at Canterbury Park, Perfect Bull was named MN Champion Three Year Old Colt.
