Smiling Tiger - Perfect Feat, by Pleasantly Perfect | HIP #93

Spiced Perfection


Offered as a racing or broodmare prospect, the remarkably consistent multiple Grade 1 winner Spiced Perfection won stakes at 2, 3 and 4. Known for her will to win, she charged from far back and muscled her way between rivals in the stretch to capture Keeneland’s Thoroughbred Club of America (G2) on Oct. 5. In defeating seven stakes winners including Grade 1 winner Mia Mischief (and Grade 3 winners Danuska’s My Girl and Talk Veuve to Me), she pushed her bankroll beyond the million-dollar mark with the victory.

She showcased her courage at Keeneland’s Spring meet when she regained the lead to prevail in the Keeneland’s star-studded Madison (G1) in April while defeating champion Shamrock Rose and stakes winners such as America’s Tale and Amy’s Challenge. While becoming the only filly to win both the Madison and Santa Anita’s La Brea (G1), she won two of the five Grade 1 filly and mare dirt sprints and did so in a four-month span. The also-rans in the La Brea included Grade 1 winner Dream Tree and Grade 3 winner Happy Like a Fool.

Prior to her Madison victory, Spiced Perfection shipped east from her Southern California base to be the game runner-up over a power-packed field in the Barbara Fritchie (G3) at Laurel.
She made her racing debut in the spring of her 2-year-old season, was victorious a month later at Del Mar and by August had scored her first of six stakes triumphs.

“She ran great, she deserved it. She’s got a huge heart. She’s impressive to watch run.”

- Trainer Peter Miller after the Madison (G1)
