TALENTED youngster Thats Perfect has added to his family’s amazing association with the Southern Cross Series.
Winner of last season’s two-year-old division, Thats Perfect returned to Globe Derby to capture last night’s Three-Year-Old Final for trainer Emma Stewart.
As such, the son of Art Major has become the third member of his clan to complete consecutive victories in the futurity.
Thats Perfect’s close relative Beauty Secret was triumphant in 2011 before returning in 2012, while Rocknroll Magic was victorious in 2015 and ’16.
Overall the family has won 10 Group Two Finals.
“It’s a marvellous family with seven of them winning this series,” Stewart said. “The boys have done well, but the fillies have been the better performers.
“It’s a strong female line and hopefully it will keep producing top stock for years to come.”
Driven by Sidney Van Den Brande, Thats Perfect led throughout from barrier two to register a demoralising 26 metres from Clarenden Valour, with Edwin Bromac nine metres away third.
Owned by a large syndicate, the colt rated 1:57.2 over 2230 metres to take his record to seven wins and five placings from 19 starts $75,860.
