Mystic Guide is back, and how!
Godolphin’s 4-year-old son of Ghostzapper was given a canny ride by Luis Saez in the $600,000 G3 Razorback Handicap at Oaklawn Park, kept wide on the heels of the leaders for the first half of the race, making a move around the home turn before kicking clear down the stretch to win by an easy six lengths.
A winner last year of the G2 Jim Dandy Stakes, followed by a fine second in the G1 Jockey Club Gold Cup, Mystic Guide is still relatively lightly-raced, and Stidham couldn’t have asked for more on this seasonal return to action., indicating as it does that this handsome colt has improved once again.
With an embarrassment of riches to choose from, stay tuned for where the trainer sends him next!
