Perfect Shirl emerged from the pack to grab the lead with an eighth of a mile to go en route to a three-quarters of a length victory in the 2011 Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Turf at Churchill Downs. A length separated the top five finishers in the race as Perfect Shirl gave trainer Roger Attfield his initial Breeders’ Cup victory and provided jockey John Velazquez with his 11th victory in the Championships.

Perfect Shirl secured her first victory on June 13, 2010 at Woodbine in her fourth start. Perfect Shirl’s initial graded stakes victory came in the 2010 Lake George (Grade 2) at Saratoga. Perfect Shirl also produced three other graded stakes placings.
