It was déjà vu all over again for Majestic
City, making his stakes debut in the
$70,000 Willard L. Proctor Memorial look as easy as his maiden breaking victory
three weeks prior at Hollywood
Sent off as the 1-to-5 favorite in the short field of five,
the son of City Zip cruised to an easy lead and strolled home by over three
lengths while covering the five and a half furlongs in 1:04 flat with David
City earned a Beyer Speed
Figure of 84, two points lower than his debut.
“You think you want to be the favorite, and you do, but at
the same time if he runs off the board I’m sneaking out of here quick,” said
trainer Peter Miller. “He ran about the same as he ran the first time. Just doing
what David’s asking him to do.”
In pushing his career record to a perfect 2-for-2, Majestic
City has earnings of $75,570, already recouping almost half of the $180,000
that owner Majestic Racing Stable paid for him on the advice of bloodstock consultant
Nick Hines at the OBS sale in March.
“He’s very good. The way he trains, he just does everything
very easily,” said Miller. “He’s never been outworked, never had a bad day. He
seems to have more in the tank, so we’ll hope so.”
The next step is the $100,000 Hollywood Juvenile Championship
(Grade III) run over six furlongs on July 17.
