Having just won the Bold Venture Stakes (G3) on August 13, Secret Reserve, coached by Mike Mattine, will be looking to add another stake to his scoreboard as he beats eight competitors in the six-lap main sprint on Tapeta for kids ages 3 and up.
4 year old son of Giant Gizmo owned by Carlo D’Amato and Stacey Van Camp, has combined a 5-1-1 record from 10 starts, including wins at Elgin and Lake Superior Stakes last year, plus a second in Lake Ontario Staking.
Mattine credits gelding’s most recent performance as one of his top efforts to date.
“It was a really nice endeavor,” he said. “He came in with a nice run late in the game and he ran really well down the lane. I think it was an all-around effort.”
Secret Reserve overcame a 10-1 defeat in game 6 1/2 Bold Venture, a rally half-length score of 1:16.19, giving equestrian Eswan Flores his first Woodbine bet win.
Second and third place finishers from Bold Venture, Candy overload and Ave’s Flatterback in an attempt to turn the tables on the Secret Reserve.
Candy Overload moved into trainer Mark Casse’s warehouse in the Hall of Fame after being privately acquired by owners Leonard Schleifer, Wachtel Stable and Gary Barber.
