Godolphin don’t have many horses by champion sire I Am Invincible in their powerful stable, but a filly they bought for $900,000 from Magic Millions last year made a winning debut at Hawkesbury on Wednesday.
Trained by James Cummings and ridden by James McDonald, In Secret was the only horse purchased by Godolphin at the Gold Coast in 2021 and was well supported to beat the race favourite Deep Expectation.
She powered to the line between runners to win the 1100m maiden running away by a length and a quarter.

Claims the first at Hawkesbury today under @mcacajamez for @godolphin. The 2YO Filly was a 2021 @mmsnippets purchase for Godolphin out of @SegenhoeGroup Draft. Congratulations to all connections!

In Secret was bred in partnership by Longwood Thoroughbred Farm and Segenhoe, who consigned her for sale, and is the second winner from former brilliant Group III winning filly Eloping, who won over $1.2million in prizemoney.
Longwood Thoroughbred Farm sold the current yearling from Eloping, a filly by Trapeze Artist, for $200,000 at Inglis Premier this year to Mick Price Racing and Breeding.
Eloping has a filly to follow by Snitzel and is back in foal to In Secret’s sire I Am Invincible.
