Waratah's Secret Wins Scahill Stakes

Monday, 13th December 2010

In Australia, WA's Mungrup Stud-based 3rd-crop sire Oratorio (Stravinsky-Express A Smile, by Success Express) added a group success when exciting 4YO gelding Waratah's Secret (Oratorio-Blissfully, by Zabeel) led all-the-way to score a 2.25-lengths victory in $125,000 weight-for-age Gr3 A.J.Scahill Stakes (1400m) at Ascot in Perth. Favourite Waratah's Secret (whose Australian-bred sire Oratorio is not the Coolmore shuttler of the same name) was ridden by Paul Harvey for trainer David Harrison in defeating evergreen 9YO gelding Hadabeclorka (Hurricane Sky-Mrs Bold, by Snippets) & 6YO gelding Elliotto (Easy Rocking-Tanamur, by Danehill). Waratah's Secret (a $43,000 yearling at the 2008 Magic Millions Perth Sale) now has 8 wins (also including October's Gr3 Prince Of Wales Stakes over 1200m at Ascot, plus both 2009's Listed Fairetha Stakes over 1400m at Ascot & Listed Belgravia Stakes over 1200m at Ascot) & 4 runners-up (including November's Gr3 Colonel Reeves Stakes over 1100m at Ascot) from 14 starts for $459,100 earnings.
