Mystical Victress
Stamping herself as one of the best ever in the Prairie State, Mystical Marker Farms and Peggy Hood’s Mystical Victress became only the third horse in history to win three straight Super Night titles as she completely overwhelmed nine other distaffers, winning the $123,000 Lorna Propes Stake by 7 ¾ lengths in 1:50.0 which equaled the stakes record she set in her victory last year.

Bet down to 1-5 after a convincing win in last week’s elimination, the five-year-old daughter of Sportsmaster-Sneakheravalentine came roaring up first over as the field reached the half-mile mark.

“That was my plan going into this race,” said winning driver Marcus Miller. “I just wanted to make sure there was nobody in her way at any time because once you get her wound up she’s like a big freight train out there.”

Powering into command as the field moved around the turn the Ervin Miller-trained miss seemed to find another gear as she turned for the cash, uncorking a 26.2 final quarter to post her 10th win in 16 starts this season. LR Dancing Dream (Todd Warren) was second while Dee Dee Sage (Mike Oosting) turned in a nice effort to finish third.

After the victory a very happy Miller was quick to praise the entire “team” associated with the champion mare.

“This is what everybody that is connected with her works so hard for all year long,” said Miller. “These are a great bunch of owners and she was razor sharp out there tonight. Stuff like this never gets old!”
