Secret Circle used an interesting jump to get into the safety zone of the earnings list.
As a two-year-old, the colt took second place to Drill, another colt owned by Mike Pegram and trained by Bob Baffert.
In the interest of keeping the two away from each other, Secret Circle was put in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Sprint, a race he won by a length.
The colt came into 2012 without a blemish on his record, but ticked off his only career loss in the G3 Sham Stakes.
Baffert decided to send the Eddington son to Arkansas to race in the lucrative Oaklawn Park prep series. Secret Circle immediately took to the surface, winning a division of the G3 Southwest Stakes by a half-length.
The colt returned to Oaklawn three-and-a-half weeks later to win the G2 Rebel Stakes after looking extremely uncomfortable on the surface, showing that he could overcome difficulty to win.
The colt looks to come back to Oaklawn one more time before the Kentucky Derby for the G1 Arkansas Derby on April 14.
