Cyber Secret, a multiple-graded stakes winner by leading sire Broken Vow, will stand the 2015 breeding season at Brent and Crystal Fernung's Ocala-based Journeyman Stud.

Raced by Oaklawn Park owner and president Charles J. Cella, Cyber Secret rolled to a trio of stakes wins in 2013, including setting a track record. Cyber Secret's victories included the Oaklawn Handicap (G2), Razorback Handicap (G3) and Prairie Bayou Stakes. He finished the 2013 season as his sire Broken Vow's leading earner with $498,329. Trained by Lynn Whiting, Cyber Secret was also second in the $100,000 Fifth Season Stakes in 2014 before retiring with career earnings of $652,993.

In winning the $500,000 Oaklawn Handicap Cyber Secret defeated 2012 Breeders' Cup Classic winner Fort Larned, who finished fifth. He won by five and three-quarters lengths in 1:49.67 for the nine furlongs test. He closed out the season with a four-and-a-half length victory in the $50,000 Prairie Bayou Stakes, setting a Turfway Park track record of 1:42.26 for a mile and one-sixteenths.

“Cyber Secret did everything you could ask a horse to do as a racehorse,” said Brent Fernung. “He won his first start at two, sprinting at Belmont Park. He then went on to become a multiple graded stakes winner, running a route of ground in record-setting time. And after four seasons of racing, he retired sound.” 

Cyber Secret is by Broken Vow out of the winning Dixieland Band mare Stomping. Consigned by his breeder Paragon Farms, Cyber Secret sold for $110,000 at the 2009 Keeneland Novembr mixed sale and was his sire's highest-priced weanling that year.

“Cyber Secret is a very good-looking horse and is a great fit for Florida,” said Fernung. “He is by Broken Vow, who is from the prolific Florida sire line of Unbridled, Fappiano and Mr. Prospector.”

Cyber Secret's sire Broken Vow is a multiple graded stakes winner by Unbridled out of the Nijinsky II mare Wedding Vow, and who has to date sired 11 stakes winners in 2014. Included in that number are Gr. I stakes winner Rosalind, winner of the Ashland Stakes (G1), as well as graded stakes winners Rainha Da Bateria and Divine Oath. Broken Vow has sired 64 stakes winners, including 24 grades stakes winners, in his stud career to date. His leading lifetime earner is multiple Gr. I stakes winner Unbridled Belle ($1,909,823).

Cyber Secret will stand the 2015 season for $2,500 as property of Charles J. Cella.
