A Stroll at Hollywood Park For Majestic City in Proctor (Video)

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 Park.

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 Flores aboard.

Majestic 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.

Should be interesting. After a long drought on turf, Baffert has won his last two on the lawn. It's a nice stakes race for a Friday night.
What do you think about Midnight Interlude trying the turf?

As a life long horse racing fan and handicapper, it’s an honor to be joining
Horseracingnation.com to share my knowledge and expertise on a daily basis to horse racing fans.
Since the early 1980’s when I visited Santa Anita with my grandfather as a young boy, the track has been in my blood. As soon as I turned 16, I was driving out to the track as much as possible, and with the advent of the self-service machines, was able to wager hassle free.
After graduating from UCLA in 2000, I began my career in sports media as a site manager for Athletesdirect.com and a couple of years later became the Media Relations Coordinator for the Los Angeles Avengers of the Arena Football League.
In the past few years, I have moved my focus to covering the Sport of Kings and have worked in the early hours to better understand morning workouts and putting the pieces of the handicapping puzzle together.
I have also used my journalistic talents to produce video coverage of stakes races in Southern California, as well as interviews with jockeys, trainers, owners and more. I look forward to providing their in-depth insight to you.
