Today we're headed behind the stall door of the small but sporty OTTB, More Secrets. This little powerhouse ran a total of 12 times, but her best placing was only 4th.

After her less than illustrious racing career, More Secrets was whisked off the track by a Racehorse re-homing group: CANTER CA
. She was re-named Beauty, and was everyone's favourite.
(Bit chomping apparent even way back then LOL)
She spent a year with an adult ammy, with a name change again, this time to Secrets, before coming up for a tearful sale as the owner was changing disciplines to endurance.
And that's where current owner/rider M comes into the picture. "I had been looking at horses for a few months", says M "and More Secrets was on the short list". M decided to take a chance and go test ride her, even though she was a bit out of her price range. "We just clicked right way: I liked that she was forward, and she liked that I was quiet: she did one little spook in place during the test ride as a flock of quail took to flight, the owner thought for sure I'd pass on her, and I was like, the best kind of spook :)" The owner could see the connection and worked with M on the price. "I knew I was getting her by Christmas, and we picked her up the first week in January." Her pocket-size and big engine made a new barn name easy, "Porsche". "Years later I found out that the previous owner's Mom had always laughed that she rode Porsches - so it was really always her name". M smiled.
We asked M to sum up Porsche in one word.
"That's easy", she said, "GAME. This mare is always game to try something new."
|Game to pack around little kiddos in inclement weather!|

"I've been really blessed to have this mare" asserts M "She is just so brave and so much fun, I can't wait to see what we will try in the future...I'm thinking the Porsche would be pretty sporty pulling a cart.... :)".
