Maryland-bred Mystical Terp scored his second career victory by taking a starter allowance Thursday for Matthew Brown, N R S Stable and Tim Keefe (that's me!). We purchased the son of Lion Heart for $30,000 at Timonium in 2009 and he's gradually become as reliable as fresh milk in the morning. A come-from-behind sprinter, the big bay gelding has hit the board in eight consecutive races, earning lucrative Maryland-bred and Maryland Million bonuses. I love a horse who shows up and tries – that's all you can ask – every time you go over there. That's 13 wins for the year. As the great Woody Guthrie sang, "Roll on, Columbia, Roll on."
