Hee’s Our Secret continues to thrive in his northern environment and picked up his sixth career win at Trentham on Saturday.
The six-year-old gelding was having his second start since travelling north earlier this month. The son of Sakhee’s Secret had finished a credible 5th over 1400m a week earlier.
Despite slightly over-racing in the early stages of the Clubs NZ 1600 of Saturday Hee’s Our Secret finished well and went stride for stride with That’s Incranibull to the line.
The judge could not split the pair and declared a deadheat.
“I thought his run the week before was really good,” trainer Andrew Carston said. “I was a bit surprised at the price he paid but I was confident of a good run.
“It was a really positive ride from Dylan (Turner) and great to get a result for Andy Denham.”
Hee’s Our Secret will continue his northern campaign and is likely to start at Awapuni on February 7th.
“We have no real long-term plan with him,” Carston said. “I just thought there was a better programme for him in the Central Districts.”
Carston is currently in Auckland attending the New Zealand Bloodstock yearling sales at Karaka and is looking forward to one of Go Racing’s Day 2 purchases joining his Riccarton Barn.
“Go Racing brought me one yesterday,” he said. “A Vadamos filly from a very good family who is really nice type.
“I think Vadamos is a big chance as a sire.”
The filly went through the ring as lot 437 and is a daughter of Group Three winner Art Beat, making her a half-sister to Australian Group Three performer Artic Shock.
There are still a few shares left in the filly and anyone is interested in finding out more about this new recruit can contact Matt on email@example.com or by calling on 0508 GORACING (0508 467224).
