GRANTS PASS — After blazing a trail from Emerald Downs in Seattle, Wash., to Saturday's featured race at the Grants Pass Downs, Mystic Trick blazed past the competition.

The thoroughbred clocked 1:06.2 in the Southern Belle Stakes, topping runner-up Chocolate Starr (1:07.35) by 53/4 lengths as jockey Troy Stillwell picked up his second victory of the afternoon.

Stillwell also won atop CPR First Date (15.94) in the opening race of the day, edging Taken U Flyn by less than a tenth of a second.

Last season's leading jockey Nikeela Black won three races on the afternoon.

Her most significant win was with 12-year-old thoroughbred Red Seattle, which claimed its 22nd-career victory and fifth at the Grants Pass downs in the fourth race of the day.

Red Seattle held the lead wire-to-wire across 61/2 furlongs, winning by 41/4 lengths with a time of 1:23.6.

Black also claimed the following race, winning by a whisker saddled atop Classy Dish. Black then notched her third victory with Zig Town, brushing past the likes of Majestic Flash and Michael's Rewards in 1:00.2.

Roger Butterfly won the third and sixth races for trainer Jackie Smith.

Butterfly rode Snowbound Angel 51/2 furlongs in 1:07.8 and Derby Day Hope five furlongs in 1:00.4 to a pair of close finishes.

Trainers Karen Haverty and Ron Haasi each received two victories with Black accounting for three of them.
