Majesticperfection Eyes Vosburgh

Majesticperfection, eye-catching winner of Sunday’s Grade 1 Alfred G. Vanderbilt Handicap appears to have emerged from the race in good order.

 

“He looked very well this morning,” trainer Steve Asmussen said Monday. “Very happy.”

 

It was the fifth consecutive victory for the son of Harlan’s Holiday – who did not race until he turned four earlier this year – and first in graded company, leaving Asmussen cheerful as well.

 

“I’m happy he was able to do it yesterday when it counted,” Asmussen said of the Padua Stables trainee. “All of those other races, he won for fun.”

 

Asmussen said that while plans for the colt were not set in stone, he would likely run in the Grade 1, $350,000 Vosburgh at Belmont Park on October 2 as a final prep for the Breeders’ Cup Sprint at Churchill Downs on November 7.
