INGLEWOOD, Calif. (October 7, 2010)—Sarah’s Secret made it two wins in as many starts, surprising heavily-favored Tales in Excess in a $41,360 allowance Thursday at Oak Tree/Hollywood Park.

Owned by breeder Joan Hadley Thoroughbreds and trained by Kathy Walsh, the 2-year-old daughter of Leroidesanimaux and the Luhuk mare Sarasota angled off the inside in the stretch and ran past the pacesetter, who was 3-10, in the final yards.

The 5-2 second choice in a field reduced to four after the scratch of May Day Rose, Sarah’s Secret ran the 6 ½ furlongs over Cushion Track in 1:16.24.

Ridden by David Flores, Sarah’s Secret returned $7 and $2.40. The place price on Tales in Excess, who had defeated maidens by 4 ½ lengths in her Del Mar debut on Sept. 4, was $2.10. There was no show wagering.

The Mike Harrington-trained duo of Swiss Wild Cat and Hi Ho Yodeler completed the order of finish.

An off-the-pace winner in her initial try at Del Mar on Aug. 22, Sarah’s Secret, who won by a half-length, increased her earnings to $54,000.

Racing continues Friday evening. Post time is 7:05 p.m.

At the conclusion of the eight race program – approximately 10:30 p.m. – a concert starring Morris Day and the Time will begin at the North Park Lawn.
