Del Mar, CA (August 29, 2021) – A perfect ride, a perfect trip, and a game effort was all 4-year-old Vronsky colt Perfectionistic needed to earn the winner’s share of the $80,960 purse in the 6th race at Del Mar.
A field of nine lined-up for the five furlong turf allowance with Perfectionistic drawing post two. Placed away from any traffic trouble in third by jockey Flavien Prat, he responded when asked at the top of the stretch. Taking the lead inside the final furlong, he dug in and held his lead to the wire to win by a head in a final time of 56.41 over the firm surface.
Perfectionistic has won half of his six career starts and he has earned $135,956. Trained by Phil D’Amato, he races for The Elwood Johnston Trust, Ashley Baze, Mary Hilvers, Peter Hilvers and Ken Tevelde. Bred by Old English Rancho, he is out of the Poteen mare, Seasontoperfection.
