Kenneally Thinking About King's Bishop for Majestic Hussar

Off since a fourth-place finish in the Grade 2 Fountain of Youth Stakes in February at Gulfstream Park, Majestic Hussar made a sharp return to the races Sunday, winning a $35,000 optional claimer and running six furlongs in 1:09.41.

 

The race earned Majestic Hussar, a 3-year-old son of Majestic Warrior, a career-best Beyer Speed Figure of 98 and put trainer Eddie Kenneally in the mind to run him in the Grade 1, $500,000 Foxwoods King's Bishop at seven furlongs on August 24.

 

"He ran real well; I was happy with this," said Kenneally, who trains Majestic Hussar for Joseph Witek. "He won his maiden first time out at Saratoga at seven furlongs. He's the type of horse that will make you excited. He had minor issues, a knee issue, mostly baby stuff. He needed a break right after that Fountain of Youth [won by subsequent Kentucky Derby winner Orb]. He ran hard that day and needed a break, and he got it."

 

Majestic Hussar has now won three of six starts. On January 19, he defeated subsequent Belmont Stakes and Jim Dandy Stakes winner Palace Malice by 2 ¼ lengths in a seven-furlong allowance race.

 

"He's very straightforward, very good mentally," Kenneally said. "He's pretty push-button, a laid-back horse."
