PERFECT SOUL, the sire of 2011 Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Turf winner Perfect Shirl, will stand the 2012 breeding season at the Hunderup family’s Norse Ridge Farm, near King City, Ontario in Canada.

A winner  of the  Grade 1 Shadwell Mile Stakes, Perfect Soul, a son of Sadler's Wells, won the Grade 2 Maker’s Mark Mile before retiring to Darby Dan Farm, Lexington with seven race wins and nine graded stakes victories or placings to his name from 21 lifetime starts.

His progeny has already won more than $6.7 million (over $3.1  million in 2011) and includes the 2011 Breeders’ Cup winner Perfect Shirl, Canadian Classic winner Perfect Shower and the multiple Woodbine stakes winner Check Your Soul. 

Perfect Soul will be available for viewing at Darby Dan Farm through Keeneland's November Sale. He will ship to Canada later in November and then can be seen at Norse Ridge Farm.
