Classy sprinter Pearl Secret has eight mares scanned in foal
Classy sprinter Pearl Secret, standing his first season at Bucklands Farm and Stud in Gloucestershire, has had eight mares scanned in foal.
The mares include the multiple French stakes-placed Spectrum mare Kezia; Indigo Beat, a placed Tamayuz half-sister to Royal Ascot winner Habaayib; and Winning Return, a well-bred Exceed And Excel mare purchased at the Tattersalls February Sale for 40,000gns.
Pearl Secret currently has a book of around 80 mares including 15 black-type performers or producers of black-type performers.
The eight-year-old son of Compton Place was a regular face in the top sprints and his finest hour came when he landed the Group 2 Temple Stakes aged six in 2015. He also finished third to Sole Power in the King's Stand Stakes.
Roisin Close of Bucklands Farm and Stud said: "I'm thrilled with Pearl Secret's start at stud. He has taken to the job with aplomb and is flourishing."
Pearl Secret is standing at a fee of £4,000.
