Pleasantly Perfect

Trainer:   Richard Mandella
Jockey:   Alex Solis
Foaling Date:   4-2-1998
Pedigree:   Pleasant Colony - Regal State by Affirmed
2003 Record:   4 starts 2-0-1
2003 Grade One Wins:   Breeders' Cup Classic (Santa Anita)
Note:   Only had a couple of minor starts early in the year and was off from March to October, but made the last two starts count by winning the Goodwood Breeders' Cup Handicap for the second year in a row and dominating the Breeders' Cup Classic field. He certainly was handled right to make such a good comeback and deserves consideration.
