She was originally purchased as a yearling at the Keeneland Yearling Sales by Venezuela´n owner Jose "Pepe" Sahagun and his Villa Blanca Farms. It was Sahagun´s vision, even as a yearling, that she would one day be bred to Mr. Prospector. It was that vision that produced the great Gone West.

Secrettame (1978 – March 17, 2006) was a champion thoroughbred racehorse and broodmare.

Secrettame is probably known for being the daughter of the great, larger than life Triple Crown Winner Secretariat. She is also the dam of the champion racehorse, and prominent sire Gone West, whos son, Elusive Quality, sired 2004 Triple Crown hopeful Smarty Jones. Smarty Jones was undefeated in all of his races, becoming the first undefeated horse to win the Kentucky Derby since Seattle Slew in 1977, but lost his last race in the final leg of the Triple Crown, the Belmont Stakes, which he lost to Birdstone. She was also the dam of Champion Lion Cavern.

In March 2006, at age 28 Secrettame died of a severe bout of colic.
