Cyber Secret, a Grade 2 winner and earner of over $650,000, has been retired and will stand the 2015 breeding season at Brent and Crystal Fernung’s Journeyman Stud in Ocala, Fla. The 5-year-old son of Broken Vow will debut at an advertised fee of $2,500.

Bred in Kentucky by Paragon Farms, Cyber Secret was a $110,000 weanling purchase by Gary and Mary West via agent Ben Glass, and raced for the Wests as a juvenile before being bought by Oaklawn Park president Charles Cella. He won three stakes races – the Grade 2 Oaklawn Handicap, the Grade 3 Razorback Handicap, and the listed Prairie Bayou Stakes – in 2013 for trainer Lynn Whiting, and placed in the listed Fifth Season Stakes earlier this year.

Cyber Secret closed out his career with a nose win on turf at Keeneland in October, and retires with 8 wins from 19 starts and $652,993 in earnings.

“Cyber Secret did everything you could ask a horse to do,” said Brent Fernung. “He is a very good-looking horse and is a great fit for Florida. He is by Broken Vow, who is from the prolific Florida sire line of Unbridled, Fappiano, and Mr. Prospector.”

Cyber Secret is out of the winning Dixieland Band mare Stomping, and is from the family of stakes winners Deputy Warlock, Jehan, Open Toe, and Foot Stone. He will stand at Journeyman Stud as the property of Charles Cella.
