Slade Bloodstock and trainer Peter Moody combined to notch an impressive debut win with another son of Barely A Moment bought at the Perth Magic Millions Yearling Sale.
The syndicator paid $50,000 for Group 1 winner Moment Of Change (Barely A Moment – Europium, by Metal Storm) at the 2010 edition of the Perth sale before returning to outlay $30,000 for Brotherly Secret (Barely A Moment – Amelia’s Secret, by Secret Savings) in 2012.
Moment Of Change won by 10 lengths on debut in a Murtoa maiden in 2011 before going on to claim the Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes (1400m) 13 months later.
Brotherly Secret took out the BRC Function and Event Centre Handicap (1100m) by 2-3/4 lengths but was impressive in his own right with a comfortable success in the $15,000 contest.
Jockey Linda Meech, who also rode Moment Of Change at Murtoa, took Brotherly Secret to the front soon after the start before the two-year-old gelding handled his rivals well to score a decisive win.
“We expected a really forward showing from him today,” Meech said. “Everything he has done, he’s done well and we like him
“From day one he has been like that. He still does have a little bit to learn going to the next grade.
“He is going to make above average, I think.
“He might be ready to go to the paddock now. I suppose Pete (Moody) will decide that.”
Brotherly Secret is the first winner for Secret Savings mare Amelia’s Secret (Secret Savings – Courteous, by Affirmed), who is a sister to the stakes winner Under The Floor (Secret Savings – Courteous, by Affirmed).
