In some ways he is a very under-rated stallion SO SECRET (Danetime/ Most Secret-Bletchley Park). A stallion who produces great temperaments in his progeny- they are co-operative and willing; they have size; they go at 2 years and beyond and they WIN. What more does an owner want?
On 8 March SO SECRET’s progeny produced a quinella in a 1000m maiden at Pinjarra Park . These were two 3 yr old fillies up against older horses and with a long neck between them on the line. There was 4 lenghths to 4th and 7 lenghths to 5th which tells you how well these fillies both ran, and the winner MELROS BEACH came from behind down the middle of the track to win easing down, telling you that further distance will not be an issue. A great result for trainer Brett Pope and jockey Mollie Clarke and for owners G Dawe, Brett Pope, Mesdames S Dawe & N & J R Stapleton, B I & Mrs C L Dalglish & Mrs E J & T C F Ferris when it was MELROS BEACH who had the long neck from filly IZ THAT RIGHT trained by Ted Martinovich.
MELROS BEACH is out of Dance To Heaven and IZ THAT RIGHT is out of Royal Minx. Both were available at the 2016 Magic Millions Yearling Sales and both are from successful female lines.
Both of these fillies should have good racing lives and that is just what owners are looking for. Congratulations all! Replay
