Charles Fipke's Seeking the Soul took another step forward toward the Group 1 $10 million Dubai world Cup at Meydan Racecourse on March 30 with a half-mile breeze on Friday morning at the Fair Grounds.

Runner-up in the Grade I Pegasus World Cup Invitational last out, the 6-year-old son of Perfect Soul (Ire.) went the four furlong distance in :49 for trainer Dallas Stewart and galloped out in 1:02.40.

“It was a very good work,” Stewart said “He's just staying sharp and keeping that edge on him. We'll get a stiff work in him sometime next week where we'll be a month out and a month from the Pegasus. Just gave him a couple moderate works since his last race. He's all dappled out and eating well.”

Prior to his second-place finish in the Pegasus World Cup behind City of Light, in which he picked up a paycheck for $1.25 million, Seeking the Soul was third in the Grade I Clark Handicap at Churchill Downs in November, a race which he won in 2017. He has earned a total of $2,951,042.

A Kentucky homebred, Seeking the Soul is out of the Grade I-placed Seeking the Gold broodmare Seeking the Title, who won the Grade III Iowa Oaks. He is a direct descendant of the undefeated Champion Filly and iconic broodmare Personal Ensign.
