Group winning sprinter son of Compton Place

Pearl Secret is one of the highest rated horses ever by Compton Place and is out of the black type mare Our Little Secret. His dam won the Listed City Wall Stakes at Chester and his family is not only packed with winners but also includes the top sire Dutch Art.

He is the natural stallion successor to Compton Place and is an obvious candidate for families who worked well with his late, great father.
