He never ran again after his Derby success and was retired to stud at Calumet Farm in Kentucky before being sent to Japan in 1992 where he died in 1999. His most notable offspring was the 1991 English 2,000 Guineas winner Mystiko. Secreto's half brother Istabraq won the Champion Hurdle at Cheltenham's National Hunt Festival in 1998, 1999 and 2000.
