Any doubts about Sworn To Secrecy’s ability to handle a heavy track were quickly dispelled with the filly’s dashing win in the Emancipation Stakes at Randwick.

The only three-year-old in the Group Two race, Sworn To Secrecy ($7) came back to 1600 metres from the 2000 of the Group One Vinery Stud Stakes in which she was a well-beaten ninth.

Brenton Avdulla settled her back in the Emancipation field which was led by Montana Flyer ($4.40 fav).

But when it came to the business end of the race, Montana Flyer struggled in the wet while Sworn To Secrecy stepped up a gear and went on to hold Skyerush ($8) by 2-1/4 lengths.

“She surprised me, she swum today,” trainer John O’Shea said.

“I was a bit worried at the top of the rise but Brenton is a great young rider.

“She will probably go for a spell now. There are plenty of races for her in the spring like the Myer Classic on Derby day.

“I’m very happy. She has justified her purchase price.”

New Zealand bloodstock agent Phil Catalado paid $300,000 for Sworn To Secrecy as a tried horse.

“Phil knows I am always on the lookout for a horse with staying ability and he keeps an eye on them for me,” O’Shea said.

“She has adapted really well to Sydney racing.

“She has a stout pedigree and it’s all in front of her.”

Trainer Guy Walter was pleased with runner-up Skyerush in the conditions and said the mare would be aimed at next month’s Wagga Gold Cup.

Shannara ($14) was just a neck behind Skyerush while the riders of many others said their mounts just didn’t handle the track.
