Horse Description:

A well built, attractive mare by the former Champion stallion Bletchley Park from a good winner producing family.

'Saturday' showed stacks of ability as demonstrated by winning two trials, but after finishing close up just two lengths from the winner at her first start, she broke down at her second start and was retired with the intention of sending her to stud where we're hoping that she can pass on some of that ability to her progeny!

A Perfect Saturday's first foal died at just a few days old, however her second foal (now a yearling) is very healthy and is due to go to the breakers in winter 2108. She's by Western Australia's seven times Champion stallion BLACKFRIARS-(recently deceased).

This season, A Perfect Saturday, who's just the most delightful mare to have on the farm, has produced a healthy filly to ALFRED NOBEL and once again is in foal to BLACKFRIARS....
