Like Sequalo, Hidden Dragon has made a great start to the 2012/13 season with his progeny already winning 24 races.

Brilliant Dragon who when breaking his maiden in August became his sire's first winner beyond 2000m, was again in winning form at Ipswich in early October, displaying versatility by winning a Class 1 event over 1700m.

Meanwhile the consistent Hidden Kisses was in the winner's circle at Doomben in early August and she has not run a bad race since - in four subsequent outings not once out of the first four. What a great return on her $25,000 pricetag she has been for her owners - her six wins from 30 starts netting them just short of $400,000 in stakes.

Stakes placed, Hidden Kisses is a full sister to the two times winner Chasing Kisses and two of her half siblings by Sequalo are also winners - Sequalo Revenge and Flying Ryan. Their dam, the five times winner Kiss An Angel, is a regular visitor to Hidden Dragon.

Another bargain at the yearling sales, Komodo Blue has also been in great form of late - the Grant Marshall trained five-year-old winning the Sesquicentennial Cup at Muswellbrook in early August and a few weeks later saluting at Doomben.

A $14,000 Magic Millions graduate, she has won seven of her 22 starts.

Lightly raced mare Just Betty is another recent city winner for Hidden Dragon - the three times winner from just seven starts proving too strong for her rivals over 1400m at Eagle Farm in late August. A home-bred for the Bidewell family, she is a full sister to the winner Hidden Star.

Another promising Hidden Dragon is Hide The Moon who looked the goods saluting at his Grafton debut in late September. A home-bred for Rosemary Sloan, he is out of the winning Eagle Eyed mare Moon Beam Kisses who foaled a Hidden Dragon filly last spring.

Hide The Moon boasts an interesting pedigree with Eagle Eyed being a full brother to Hidden Dragon's champion sire Danehill.
