Seven Secrets will be lo

Seven Secrets will be looking to go out on a high when the curtain comes down on her career at Tabcorp Park, Menangle, on Tuesday.

Trainer Blake Fitzpatrick has admitted that she could have retired and headed to stud at the end of last season, but the decision was taken to stay on for one more race.

"Her previous start when she won at Menangle right at the end of the season was going to be her last, but she was kept in work for this race when we saw it on the program," Fitzpatrick said.

"She's been a good mare for her connections her whole career and deserves one more win. With everything as it is, this will be her last run before she goes to stud.

"Although she is pacing-bred, she's been a natural squaregaiter from the beginning and she will go to a trotting stallion hoping to get a trotter."

Fitzpatrick is quietly confident Seven Secrets can lead throughout the 2300-metre stand, after the four-year-old was drawn well in three.

"She's feeling good and the conditions suit her, so she's a big chance," Fitzpatrick added. "She loves the stand, being front and the 2300 metres.

"With a bit of luck things will go her way and she'll bow out a winner."
