Veteran trotter Mystical Ryan cruised down victory lane for the second time in four starts for trainer Jamie Johnston on Friday night in the $13,000 Preferred Handicap Trot at Rideau Carleton Raceway.

The nine-year-old gelded son of Striking Sahbra-Eclectia left from Post 2 with John MacDonald in the bike and maintained a solid lead on the field through fractions of :27.2, :56.3 and 1:25.1. Paddington (Stephane Pouliot) pulled the pocket in the stretch, but the 33-1 longshot only made it within three-quarters of a length of the leader. Mystical Ryan stopped the clock in 1:56. Star Ruffnready (Rheo Filion) finished third.

Jamie claimed Mystical Ryan, who has put together a record reading 7-9-2 in 25 seasonal starts, on July 4 at Mohawk Racetrack for $35,000 with Sonja and Cara Johnston.

He paid $9 to win as the 7-2 third choice.
