Perfect Power (Ire)

Perfect Power Camp Eyes Greenham

Dual Group 1 winner Perfect Power (Ire) (Ardad {Ire}) will likely make his 3-year-old bow in the Apr. 16 G3 Greenham S. Sponsored By Watership Down Stud at Newbury for trainer Richard Fahey. The Sheikh Rashid Dalmook Al Maktoum colourbearer has won four of his six starts. He emerged a narrow winner of the G2 Norfolk S. at Royal Ascot last June and added the G1 Prix Morny in France two starts later. In his season finale, the bay was a half-length winner of the G1 Middle Park S. on...

Perfect Power Camp Considering Options

Dual Group 1 winner Perfect Power (Ire) (Ardad {Ire}), who won Saturday's G1 Juddmonte Middle Park S. at Newmarket, may be put away for the winter, rather than make another start as his connections consider their options. Sheikh Rashid Dalmook Al Maktoum's colt graduated at second asking at Hamilton prior to winning the G2 Norfolk S. at Royal Ascot on June 17. Only fifth in the G2 Richmond S. at Goodwood at the end of July, Perfect Power rebounded with a 1 1/4-length win in the G1 Darley Prix Morny...

Middle Park Glory For Ardad's Perfect Power

Saturday's G1 Juddmonte Middle Park S. at Newmarket looked a tight affair on paper and although there were just 1 3/4 lengths covering the first seven home, there was ultimately a degree of comfort in the victory of the G1 Prix Morny hero Perfect Power (Ire) (Ardad {Ire}). Freshened up since his success for Christophe Soumillon in the Morny over this six-furlong trip at Deauville Aug. 22, the Richard Fahey-trained bay was one of the last to play his hand under that rider but was a cosy half-length winner from...

Ardad's Perfect Power Battles To Prix Morny Glory

Sheikh Rashid Dalmook Al Maktoum's 2-year-old colt Perfect Power (Ire) (Ardad {Ire}) became the first stakes winner for his freshman sire (by Kodiac {GB}) when plundering Royal Ascot's June 17 G2 Norfolk S. and, despite a blip when fifth in last month's July 29 G2 Richmond S. at Goodwood, notched another first for the Overbury Stud incumbent with a decisive victory in Sunday's G1 Darley Prix Morny at Deauville, a "Win And You're In" for the GII Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf Sprint at Del Mar in November.

Phoenix An Option For Perfect Power

Group 2 winner Perfect Power (Ire) (Ardad {Ire}) is a likely supplement for the Aug. 8 G1 Keeneland Phoenix S. at The Curragh according to trainer Richard Fahey. Third at first asking at Newcastle near the end of May, the bay graduated at Hamilton on June 9 and clawed out a narrow win in the G2 Norfolk S. at Royal ascot on June 17.

First Black-Type Winner For Ardad As Perfect Power Wins the Norfolk

Impressive both visually and on the clock when off the mark over this five-furlong trip at Hamilton eight days previously, Sheikh Rashid Dalmook Al Maktoum's Perfect Power (Ire) (Ardad {Ire}) delivered the same acceleration to take Thursday's G2 Norfolk S. and provide his Overbury Stud-based first-season sire with a first black-type winner. Drawn in 10 and forced to come up the middle which had looked unfavourable over the first two days, the Richard Fahey-trained £110,000 Goffs UK Breeze Up graduate was outpaced and towards rear at halfway in this GII...
