Nine-year-old gelding Secrets Untold is out to win the Listed Brisbane Handicap at Doomben this Saturday, after having two previous unsuccessful attempts at the race.
His trainer, Phillip Cox, is not at all fazed by Secrets Untold’s age.
“He’s been a great old horse and he doesn’t know he’s nine,” Cox said.
“He’s got no problems and he just loves racing.
“I take him to the track most mornings and he thrives on it.
“That’s why he’s been racing so well.”
The Sequalo gelding won proved he is still up to Saturday class by winning the Yummy Noodle Box Handicap at Doomben over 2,020 metres two starts back.
The Listed Brisbane Handicap will be hosted by Doomben Racecourse for the first time this year, with all previous editions being held at Eagle Farm.
“It doesn’t matter the race is at Doomben this year as he likes both Brisbane tracks,” Cox said.
“I’ve got no thoughts of retiring him and that won’t happen until his form really drops off.
“It’s not a real strong race this year and I’m sure he’ll be hard to beat again.
“Fillydelphia looks to be his biggest danger again but she has to carry a lot more weight this time.”
Secret’s Untold has won 14 of his 73 career starts and has earned more than $525,000 in prize money.
