Victorious Secret claimed her second win in as many months when landing the opening Racecourse Of The Year Handicap at Leopardstown today, maintaining her unbeaten record under apprentice jockey Killian Leonard.

The daughter of Holy Roman Emperor arrived from off the pace to edge her head past Intense Stylist close home, to follow up last month’s Dundalk success.

Following the race, Fozzy Stack said “Killian is well able to ride in fairness to him, and he is a good kid. She is not the easiest ride in the world; you have to get there very late with her.

“I was a bit worried about running her back on grass as her two performances on it before today weren’t great. In fairness the day in Cork was the day they called it off, and she was against older horses (when beaten) at the Curragh.”
