A Maiden winning by eighteen lengths!
Might be a bit to hard believe, but seeing is believing and those who watched Secret Tales’ demolition job of her four opponents at the Gold Coast on Saturday could only marvel as the daylight distance between first and second got wider and wider with each passing stride.
The Steven O’Dea and Matt Hoysted trained runner made the others look like they were moving in slow motion.
Secret Tales did start a $1.35 favourite, but nobody could have predicted the scope of her win. Jockey Jag Guthmann-Chester must have been wondering where everybody else was in the pull-up.
It was the daughter of Spill The Beans’s second career start. She finished sixth on debut, 3.30 lengths behind Startantes, who also ran on Saturday, finishing third behind Military Gamble at Doomben.
