Retama: Mystery Classic resumes training


Mystery Classic, who had been sidelined with a non-displaced condylar fracture to his right hind leg, returned to training on Aug. 25, said his trainer, Bob Schultz. The horse is based at Retama.

"He just got back," said Schultz. "He probably won't be ready until Houston. We ought to be able to start putting works in him the first part of October."

Mystery Classic was the Texas-bred horse of the year in 2007.
