Cliff's Secret, who debuted against rock-bottom maiden claimers two
months ago, continued her rapid rise Friday at Emerald Downs with a
smashing 5 ¾-length victory in the $13,100 Abbott Party Purse for older
fillies and mares.
With regular rider Juan Gutierrez aboard,
Cliff's Secret ran six furlongs in a swift 1:08 3/5 and paid $7, $3.80
and $3.80. Jim Penney, assisted by daughter Kay Cooper, is the trainer
for owners Michael and Amy Feuerborn of Maple Valley, Wash.
