Majestic Hussar Possible for Fountain of Youth

Majestic Hussar stamped himself as a 3-year-old with a graded-stakes future with an impressive front-running allowance victory in Saturday’s first race at Gulfstream.

The son of Majestic Warrior, a homebred of Dr. Joseph Witek, posted a 2 ¼ -length triumph over favored Palace Malice under Jose Lezcano, running seven-furlongs in 1:22.53 on a sloppy track.

“He’ll run in a graded-stake somewhere. We’re not sure which one yet,” said Kenneally, whose owner expressed his hope that Majestic Hussar could make the $400,000 Fountain of Youth (G2) at Gulfstream Park on Feb. 26. “We’d like to stretch him out.”

Majestic Hussar. who broke his maiden by more than six lengths in his debut at Saratoga in August over a sloppy track, had previously finished second over a good track at Gulfstream Park on Dec. 15.

“I think he’s a nice horse,” Kenneally said. “I think he would have run well on a fast track.”

The Kentucky-bred colt finished seventh behind Shanghai Bobby in the Hopeful (G2) at Saratoga on Sept. 3.

“He was immature. We wanted to give him a break. He ran poorly in the Hopeful. I don’t think he was ready for that caliber of horse, and he was going through a growing stage,” Kenneally said. “Doc agreed that it was a good idea to back off and give him the fall off and have a fresh horse for the winter/spring campaign.”

Bradester, whom Kenneally saddled for his second victory in three starts on Jan. 1 at Gulfstream, won’t run in next Saturday’s $400,000 Holy Bull (G3).

"We’re just going to wait and see. We’re not sure what we’re doing with him yet,” Kenneally said.
