Majestic Harbor Sets Sights on LA Derby

Gallant Stable’s Majestic Harbor, a Rockport Harbor colt who broke his maiden with a front-running 6 1/4-length score on Feb. 12 at Fair Grounds, breezed six furlongs in 1:16.60 Monday morning in preparation for the upcoming Grade II Louisiana Derby March 26.

 

“I thought it was a good work for him,” said trainer Paul McGee Monday morning before leaving to drive back to Louisville to arrive in advance of some horses shipping to Churchill Downs. “Corey (Lanerie, jockey) was up on him this morning and he thought he breezed well and galloped out strong. I’ll probably fly back here to New Orleans and breeze him one more time before the Louisiana Derby.

 

“I breezed Demarcation five furlongs (1:02) on Saturday,” said McGee of the Amerman Racing Stables color bearer who won the Grade III Mineshaft Handicap here Feb. 19 and is prepping for the Grade II New Orleans Handicap on Louisiana Derby Day March 26. “He’s coming along just fine as well.”

 

The New Orleans Handicap, Fair Grounds’ premier event for older horses on the main track, had its purse boosted to $400,000 in an announcement made late last week.
