Sakhee's Secret off the mark at Goodwood

SAKHEE'S SECRET sired his first winner at Goodwood on Friday when the Jane Chapple-Hyam-trained and owned Tommy's Secret won the 5f maiden.

An eye-catching fifth on debut at Chester, Tommy's Secret stayed on well to run out a ready winner.

One of 93 two-year-olds from Sakhee's Secret's first crop, Tommy's Secret was passed in for £1,000 at last year's Ascot December Sale. Out of the dual-winning middle-distance winner La Gessa, the gelding is a half-brother to the 7f two-year-old winner Wordismybond.

Sakhee's Secret, who won five races including the July Cup, covered 18 stakes-performing mares during his first season at Whitsbury Manor Stud and his progeny were in high demand at last year's yearling sales averaging 24,760gns and making as much as 95,000gns paid by Peter and Ross Doyle for Mutazamen. The colt who descends from a family that includes the Phoenix Stakes winner Digamist is owned by Hamdan Al Maktoum and is in training with Richard Hannon.

Sakhee's Secret's 2012 fee is £5,500.
