Phoenix, AZ (March 30, 2021) – Minister of Soul came home the easiest of winners in the opener and feature race on the card at Turf Paradise, a six furlong allowance over the fast main track.
The son of Ministers Wild Cat pushed the pacesetter from the start. Carried out to the five path around the turn, the lost ground proved no obstacle. Clearly the best in the field, he opened easily to win by five lengths in 1:08.66. He earned the highest Equibase Speed Figure nationally on the day.
A steady stakes-performer for the last three seasons, the 7-year-old gelding has earned $247,182. He races for and is trained by Esteban Martinez. Bred in California by Dahlberg Farms LLC, he is out of the winning Bernstein mare, Sensitive Soul.
