Description: Highland Reel (IRE) B , C, foaled February 21, 2012 (Galileo (IRE) - Hveger (AUS), by Danehill) goes wire to wire to score a brilliant victory in the 10 furlong $450K Grade I Secretariat Stakes under showery skies but a turf course listed as 'firm' at Arlington Park August 15, 2015. Jockey Seamie Heffernan sent Highland Reel on his way in his first North American start to lead a nice group of 3 year olds. As they were rounding the far turn, Highland Reel appeared to be playing with his foes, letting them get close then bounding away. At the top of the stretch Highland Reel was let loose and he ran off to win by 5 1/4 lengths. Force The Pass gain ground stoutly along the far outside turning for home, while no chance at catching the leader looked to have the place, however Closing Bell came along and nipped him at the wire by a head. Highland Reel is 4-2-0 from 8 starts and he has earned $854,823. He was bred by the Hveger Syndicate and he is owned by Derrick Smith, Susan Magnier, and Michael Tabor. Highland Reel is being trained by Aidan O'Brien. Drawing by Daily Racing Funnies ®.
