Perfect Bull has been entered in the $100,000 Commonwealth Turf Stakes (Grade 3) to be run this Sunday at Churchill Downs in Louisville KY. Post time for the feature event, carded as race nine, is 4:37pm. The colt will be breaking from post eight in a field of ten for the 8.5 furlong contest.
In preparation for the race, Perfect Bull worked five furlongs last Sunday, recording a bullet move in 1:00.10 (fastest of 49 at the distance) and signaling his eagerness. The colt vanned to Louisville from his Oklahoma City barn on Wednesday and has settled in nicely. Arriving a couple days early will allow him to work over the track and become familiar with his new surroundings.
The connections will enjoy the privilege of experiencing race day from the Aristides Room with its private balcony overlooking the finish line and the famed Twin Spires as well as complimentary food and open bar. Its quite the change from our first visits to Kentucky, when dining at a Waffle House and a misunderstanding at a distillery benchmarked the days. Chasing our Bluegrass dream has provided a strange, wonderful journey. We highly encourage you to make such a trip. Your life will thank you.
