Whispered Secret Wins Listed Fernhill Handicap
On day two of The Championships at Royal Randwick in Sydney, Coolmore's deceased dual Derby-winning shuttler & 6-time Gr1 victor High Chaparral (Sadler's Wells-Kasora, by Dashaan) added a black-type success when 2YO filly Whispered Secret (High Chaparral-Zutara, by Encosta de Lago) scored by 1.3 lengths for trainer James Cummings in the $150,000 Listed Fernhill Handicap (1600m) for 2YOs, over 2YO colts Toga Picta (Lonhro-Purple, by Commands) & All Too Huiying (All Too Hard-Madame Flurry, by Perugino). A homebred for Eduardo Cojuangco's Gooree Stud, Whispered Secret improved her record to 2 wins and 1 placing from 4 starts for $116,950 earnings. From the dual Group-placed mare Zutara, Whispered Secret hails from the family of Victoria Derby winner Prized Icon, Gr1 Thousand Guineas winner Princess Talaria, and Gr3 winners Matras and Romantic Moon.
