No Secrets Here peaking at the right time

EmailAll American Futurity winner No Secrets Here looks like he's back in top form with important season-ending stakes drawing near.

A strapping son of First Down Dash, No Secrets Here is the fastest qualifier to Saturday's Grade 1, $818,850 Los Alamitos Super Derby. The last time he was in a similar position, he won the 2006 Grade 1, $2omillion All American Futurity.

The winner of the Los Alamitos Super Derby earns an invitation to the Grade 1, $1 million Champion of Champions, the ultimate goal for No Secrets Here. The 440-yard race is Dec. 15 at Los Alamitos.

No Secrets Here won his derby trial by a neck over 2006 champion 2-year-old Blues Girl Too, accounting for two of the five qualifiers from that trial. No Secrets Here won the trial in 19.455 seconds for 400 yards, while Blues Girl Too, who will get strong support in the derby, has the second-fastest time of 19.500 seconds.

"He came out of his trial in excellent shape," trainer Paul Jones said at his Los Alamitos barn while No Secrets Here was playing with his hotwalker. "He's coming around at the right time. The money is at the end of the year."

Last year at Ruidoso Downs, No Secrets Here raced to the fastest qualifying time to the All American Futurity and then won the finals in stakes-record time.

Jones, the five-time defending national training champion, is beyond hot. Last Friday night at Los Alamitos, Jones won five races, including the Grade 1, $1.2 million Golden State Million. Last Saturday night, he won five stakes, capped by the Grade 1, $300,000 Challenge Championship.

Blues Girl Too did not hold off No Secrets Here in their trial, but easily qualified for the Super Derby. An earner of $1,476,829, she came into the trials off Grade 1 wins in the Golden State Derby and the Mildred Vessels Handicap over older mares.

Trainer Adan Farias has four horses in the Super Derby, headed by stakes winners A Stoli Mate and A Mere Splash. Farias expects a lot from A Stoli Mate, winner of the Grade 1 Los Alamitos Winter Derby. A Mere Splash won the $145,000 Maiden Stakes and the Grade 3 Vandy's Flash Handicap

"I expected to do well in the trials, but was surprised to do this well," Farias said. "I've never had this many in a big race."

The Farias-trained Feature Mr Liquidity was claimed for $12,500 in March and then underwent knee surgery. He returned to run a strong third behind No Secrets Here and Blues Girl Too in their trial.

Little Bit of Baja surprised at 23-1 odds to win his Super Derby trial.

"He's the most improved one of the four," Farias said.

Futurity, derby up for grabs at Zia

The Grade 1, $339,000 New Mexico Classic Futurity and the Grade 1, $176,000 New Mexico Classic Derby on Sunday at Zia Park both offer wide-open fields.

Fillies could take the futurity with fastest qualifier Won Hot Chick and the consistent Miracle Streakin.

Won Hot Chick returned from a four-month layoff to win her trial in 19.466 seconds for 400 yards. Before her layoff, she was third in the Gradeo2 Ruidoso Sale Futurity.

Miracle Streakin, second in the Grade 1 New Mexican Spring Futurity, is 2 for 2 at Zia Park and has never finished worse than second in six lifetime starts.

In the Grade 1, $170,000 New Mexico Cup Championship, Gotta Get faces Dash Ta Moon.

Gotta Get had seven stakes wins from seven 2006 starts while earning the champion aged gelding title. He is 5 for 8 this year and comes off a fast win in the New Mexico Breeders Championship.

Dash Ta Moon returned from a 10-month layoff to win the Lubbock Stakes on Oct. 6.
