Perfect Bull has been entered in the $400,000 Oklahoma Derby, to be run on Sunday Oct. 11 at Remington Park. The colt will break from post two as the field of eight contests the mile and one-eighth distance in its twenty-first renewal. Carded as race nine, the approx. post time is 5:06pm (sign-up at twinspires.com for a live video feed or find on HRTV, channel 404 on the DISHnetwork).
Having recorded his first career victory at the Oklahoma City oval last fall as a 2yo, Perfect Bull has been stabled there once again since his victorious Minnesota campaign. A Minnesota-bred winning the Oklahoma Derby is not without precedent as fellow MN-bred Wally's Choice won the event in 2004. The family tree also boasts a victor as Perfect Bull's broodmare sire (father of his mother), Dazzling Falls, won the event in 1995. Looking for history to repeat, Perfect Bull enters the race ready to make history of his own.
