Perfect Bull will be contesting the $75k Prairie Meadows Derby this Saturday, September 19 in Altoona IA. A field of seven is entered for the One Mile and One-Sixteenth event for three year olds. Carded as the evening's fifth race, post time is 8:17 pm (past performances).
The colt traveled to Remington Park in Oklahoma City after the Canterbury Park meet concluded and has settled in nicely. He bounced out of his previous effort in excellent condition and recorded an easy five furlong breeze last Sunday. Perfect Bull will be making the trip to Prairie Meadows on Thursday with a jog over the main track scheduled for Friday.
While the field contains solid contenders, Perfect Bull boasts the most wins, best speed figures going a route, and arguably best racing form. Yet the favoritism is going to the competitors sporting well-heeled connections. Your MN-bred invader with the ND-connections is offered as the fourth choice on the morning line at juicy odds of 5-1.
