Pleasantly Perfect Continues to Prepare for Classic Defense
Multi-millionaire Pleasantly Perfect worked a mile in 1:38 1/5 in company with stablemate Sanfran at Santa Anita Monday in preparation for his defense of his Breeders' Cup Classic (gr. I) – Powered by Dodge title at Lone Star Park on Oct. 30. Regular rider Crystal Brown was in the irons for the move."He galloped out a mile and an eighth in 1:53," trainer Richard Mandella said. "He'll leave (for Texas) on the 25th. He'll get most of his work here (in California), but we'll probably do a little something with him when he gets there."Pleasantly Perfect, who won the Pacific Classic (gr. I) in his last start, also won the Dubai World Cup (gr. I) and owns a career line of 17-9-3-1. Currently he ranks sixth on the all-time North American earnings list with a bankroll of $7,349,880.
