The 'Secret' is out at Tampa


Taking the lead right at the start, Lookinforthesecret set a blistering pace, then pulled away late to post a 2 1/2-length victory in the $65,000 Pelican Stakes Saturday at Tampa Bay Downs.

Ridden by Daniel Centeno and trained by Jamie Ness, Lookingforthesecret covered the six furlongs in 1:09.30 and returned $7.40 as the second choice in the field of eight sprinters.

He's So Chic finished second, 3 3/4 lengths to the good of Its His Time, then survived a claim of foul by that one for interference after the start.
