Montoya's Secret Wins Gr1 Vinery Stud Stakes

Monday, 27th March 2017

At Rosehill Gardens in Sydney, Coolmore's deceased dual Derby-winning shuttler & 6-time Gr1 victor High Chaparral (Sadler's Wells-Kasora, by Dashaan) celebrated an elite success when 3YO filly Montoya's Secret (High Chaparral-Divine Secret, by Thunder Gulch) scored by 0.2 length for trainers Leon & Troy Corstens in the $500,000 Gr1 Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m) for 3YOs, over fellow 3YO fillies Nurse Kitchen (Savabeel-Flying Monty, by Montjeu) & Harlow Gold (Tavistock-Belongs in Lights, by Belong to Me). Montoya's Secret, who was purchased for $130,000 Bahen Bloodstock & Malua Bloodstock at the 2015 NZ Bloodstock Premier Yearling Sale from the draft of Phoenix Park, improved her record to 3 wins and 4 placings from 10 starts for $405,375 earnings. From the Thunder Gulch mare Divine Secret, Montoya's Secret is a half-sister to Gr2 Auckland Cup winner Delago's Secret.
