Mystyko won at the Sunshine Coast over 1,200m yesterday by a length and three quarters from a field of 12. It was his first race since arriving in Queensland just a few weeks ago.
Trainer, Trevor Rogers said, ‘Mystyko raced well, his sectionals in the last 400 and 200 were the best of the day for the same type of horse which looks great for his future.
‘He pulled up fantastically this morning and will probably run again in a fortnight or so.
‘We gave him a couple of runs as a two-year-old to prepare him for this three-year-old campaign. He’s a nice strong individual with a great mental and physical attitude that makes him an adaptable horse to train.

‘He’s a big boy and still growing. Mental and phsyical strength is what you need, he’ll only get stronger when he goes out for another break’, added Rogers.
Jockey Glen Colless, said ‘He’s a nice horse, I’d really like to ride him again’.
Glen is a jockey of few words so it’s meaningful that he said as much as he did.
