Montoya’s Secret posted a number of strong and consistent results for Leon and Troy Corstens this time in, but the filly’s form lines were vastly different from several leading contenders in the Vinery Stud Stakes this afternoon and she was subsequently left alone in betting markets.

Jumping well, jockey Noel Callow took a position within the Vinery Stud Stakes field as Lubiton, Kamili and Dawn Wall set the early pace.

Experiencing a reasonably carefree run in transit, the High Chaparral filly followed a line of horses into the final straight and was forced to wait for a run, but mustered a big turn of foot when the gaps opened savaged the line to beat a flying Nurse Kitchen; Harlow Gold bobbing Foxplay to finish third.

Leon Corstens was on hand for Montoya’s Secret’s win in the 2017 Vinery Stud Stakes and he was quick to credit son and co-trainer Troy in the impressive success.

“I think the main thanks have got to go to Troy. If it was up to me, I’d have left her at home in the box because I didn’t think she’d handle the track,” Corstens said.

“He was the instigator in this, he said ‘take her up there, I’m quite sure she’ll handle it’ and he was right.

“It’s great. We have our ups and downs. He’s overruled me and I’m pleased he did.

“I was getting a bit worried coming to the 1000m because she seemed to be going backwards when she should have been going forwards.

Callow’s ride undoubtedly played a big role in Montoya’s Secret winning the Vinery Stud Stakes and the veteran hoop was thrilled to post his first Group 1 win in more than a decade.

“She was good,” Callow said after dismounting.

“I drew a nice barrier, so it was pretty hard to stuff up!

“Just when they were racing off the fence I tucked in behind Benny Melham (Dawn Wall) and I just got shuffled back a length where I was vulnerable.

“In the end she got there too early and just wanted to have a look around and that’s why she wanted to get out, but that’s about it!”

Montoya’s Secret posted her third-consecutive race win in the Vinery Stud Stakes and only the fourth of her lucrative eleven start career to date.
