Ripper So Secret foals at Rangeview

The latest crop of foals by Danetime stakes winner So Secret are arriving at his home base at Rangeview Stud.

Metal Storm mare Scottish Storm delivered a ripper So Secret filly at the Bullsbrook nursery last month.  She won the 2004 Perth Magic Millions 2YO Classic and also earned black-type when placed in the LR Gimcrack Stakes.

Scottish Storm foaled Blitz Off (Natural Blitz) first-up and she won on debut at Pinjarra in March.  The mare also has a yearling colt by So Secret destined for the 2013 Perth Magic Millions.

So Secret has his first two year-olds ready to race this season and among them is the colt from Dance Hi that made $100,000 at this year’s Perth Magic Millions.  His dam was a G2 winner of the 2005 WA Champion Fillies Stakes.

The top priced So Secret filly at the 2012 Perth Magic Millions made $60,000.  She is out of Real Hi and was purchased by Commercial Bloodstock’s Noel Carter.  The dam is a half-sister to Rangeview-bred sprinter Barakey (Key Business) who is unbeaten in 8 starts.

So Secret is a son of ill-fated Danehill sire Danetime and is a member of Sunspeed’s most influential families through his stakes winning dam Most Secret.  The Bletchley Park mare has foaled 7 winners including G1 Railway Stakes winner Covertly (Metal Storm) and So Secret who won five sprints including the G3 Colonel Reeves Stakes.

So Secret stands for a $4,400 (inc gst) fee at Rangeview alongside Henny Hughes ($7,700) and Key Business ($4,400).
