More Than Ready (USA) - Secret Heart (SAF)
Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf (Gr 2, 8f) winner Pluck (2 c Secret Heart, by Fort Wood) is scheduled to stand alongside his sire More Than Ready (USA) at Vinery Stud in Australia following his recent acquisition.
Trained by Todd Pletcher, the Team Valor-homebred came with a big finish in the straight to land the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf having previously won the Summer Stakes (Gr 3, 8f) at Woodbine in Canada.
The colt has since been transferred to Graham Motion and could be targeted towards Europe with the Irish 2,000 Guineas a possible option.
A decision as to when Pluck will retire to stud will be made following his three-year-old campaign.
His dam Secret Heart is a stakes winner in South Africa, by Champion sire Fort Wood, and is a half-sister to the Champion South African 3-year-old Filly of 2004, Promisefrommyheart. His granddam Secret Pact is a stakes winning half-sister to champion London News.
