Sworn To Secrecy Wins Emancipation Stakes

Wednesday, 27th April 2011

NZ Cambridge Stud's Australian-bred stallion Keeper (Danehill-Nuwirah, by Pleasant Colony) added a group success (& 20th individual stakes-winner) when 3YO filly Sworn To Secrecy (Keeper-Heartache, by Casual Lies) scored a 2.25-lengths victory over her older rivals in the $175,000 Gr2 Emancipation Stakes (1600m) for fillies & mares at Randwick. Sworn To Secrecy (ridden by Brenton Avdulla for trainer John O'Shea) defeated 5YO mare Skyerush (Super Jet-Bally Aura, by Bellotto) & 4YO mare Shannara (Octagonal-Shadea, by Straight Strike). Sworn To Secrecy (a NZ$52,000 2YO at the 2008 NZB Ready-To-Run Sale) took her record to 3 wins & 5 placings (including both March's Gr2 Phar Lap Stakes over 1500m at Rosehill & Listed Canberra Guineas over 1400m) from 9 starts for $159,863 earnings.
