Perfect Wish wires the field in Remington Park’s She’s All In Stakes

Midshipman's daughter starts off a great weekend for her sire!

Perfect Wish returned to her winning ways when leading the field from gate to wire to win the $75,000 She’s All In Stakes by two-and-a-half lengths at Remington Park on Friday, 15 December.

If not for a misstep in the G3 Remington Park Oaks in September, Perfect Wish would have won her fourth consecutive race when taking the She’s All In Stakes. Prior to the Remington Park Oaks, the three-year-old Midshipman filly had won three straight, including the Iowa Stallion Filly Stakes at Prairie Meadows. Perfect Wish improved her record to four wins and a third in eight career starts.

Bred in Kentucky by Stonehaven Steadings, Perfect Wish is out of Can You Talk, an unraced daughter of Tale of the Cat. Can You Talk is out of the Stakes-placed mare, Earlybird Road (by Cherokee Run), and is a half-sister to Stakes winner and multiple Graded Stakes-placed Strongconstitution and Stakes-placed Four Inch Heels.

The next day, another pair of Midshipman-sired runners found the winners circle as well at Oaklawn:

  • Back to Ohio won for the ninth time in 10 starts (six stakes wins) taking an $142,000 AOC
  • Midshipman's Dance, three races later, made her career debut a winning in MSW company

In addition to Perfect Wish, Midshipman is represented by the six-time Stakes winner Back to Ohio and the talented juvenile Stakes winners Amidst Waves and Ship Cadet. You'll have to go to $60,000 to find a horse that gets 16% Stakes horses in Kentucky.

Midshipman will stand the 2024 breeding season at Jonabell Farm for $15,000, stands and nurses.
