Unbridled's Song's 4-year-old colt Mystic pulled some late-race heroics for a hard-fought neck victory in the $85,000 West Virginia House of Delegates Speaker's Cup Aug. 6 at Mountaineer Park, and in the process became the newest stakes winner for his top 15-ranked sire.

Mystic was in the back half of the eight horse field for the first six furlongs of the 1 mile and 70 yard contest on the turf. With a late surge in the stretch under strong handling from James Graham, the chestnut nipped even-money favorite Strike Impact on the wire in a time of 1:38.90 on the firm going. The final clocking was just a second off the track record and scored him a Beyer Speed Figure of 93.

Mystic, who races for Sequoia Racing, is now 4-0-3 in 15 starts and has amassed $181,573. He was bred in Kentucky by Sha-Li Leasing Associates and is one of three winners from as many starters out of Mayville's Magic.
