PARIS CONTINUES TO BE PERFECT
The first of two ex Port Elizabeth stalwarts to make names for themselves in the international world, was Paris Perfect (by Muhtafal), followed this year by the herculean efforts of Lizard’s Desire by Lizard Island.
While Lizard’s Desire is presently battling laminitis in his adopted country of Dubai, Paris Perfect has started twice this season in Saudi Arabia, where he has produced two magnificent performances. Looking at the latest pictures of him in the winner’s enclosure following the Um Elqura Universal Cup at Taif Racecourse in Saudi Arabia, where he carried the “impossible” impost of 61kg to a three length victory over 2,400m (we always thought the distance well beyond him) over Danat Fahad (by Giants Causeway) and Nemerbader (by Singspiel) in third… it seems he has developed again in stature.
Bred and raised at Summerhill for some of our staunchest clients, Peter and Gail Fabricius, Paris Perfect is another advert for his grand sire, Muhtafal, whose progeny seem to get better with age. For those that thought Paris Perfect’s memorable third in the richest race in the world, the Dubai World Cup, was a once-off fluke, you’ve now got food for thought.
