Arcadia, CA (October 14, 2013). Unraced since finishing second to Bodemeister in the
Arkansas Derby in April 2012, Eddington’s 4-year-old Secret Circle was brilliant in his
1:07.98 comeback win at Santa Anita. He laid down a 104 Beyer while running the
fastest six-furlong time of the meet and defeating another Eddington son Let’s Get
Crackin by 1 1/2 lengths.
Winner of the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Sprint at Churchill Downs in 2011, Secret Circle
was a serious player on the Triple Crown trail with back-to-back wins in the Grade 3
Southwest Stakes and Grade 2 Rebel Stakes at Oaklawn Park. Owned by Mike
Pegram, Karl Watson and Paul Weitman, Secret Circle has won 6 of 8 starts and
earned $1,053,790 and may be under consideration for a start in the Breeders’ Cup Sprint-G1 on November 2.
