On 11 May 2003, jockey Perry Compton was sitting on 2999 career victories. He entered the starting gate at Prairie Meadows that evening astride a promising filly.
To date, trainer Bernell Rhone has himself saddled 999 winners. This Saturday the trainer will cinch up an accomplished colt at that very same racetrack in search of his own milestone achievement. That colt is Perfect Bull, his dam being Perfect Moment, the same filly that provided the jockey with his 3000th trip to the winner's circle six years ago.
