Horse Description:

A former $82,500 yearling purchase, Secret Salsa won two races and was placed twice from just 6 starts before injury curtailed her career. As a broodmare, she's had three foals, the first is a 2yo gelding by the World Class stayer and Group 2 Goodwood Cup winner ILLUSTRIOUS BLUE, the second-a filly-is by the prolific winner producing stallion MAGNUS, and the third is a filly also by ILLUSTRIOUS BLUE and she was born on November 1st 2016 which was Melbourne Cup Day! We're so impressed with the progeny of Illustrious Blue that we've sent Secret Salsa-who we consider to be our best mare-back to ILLUSTRIOUS BLUE once again for this breeding season.
