Stormy's Majesty Rebounds in Discovery

Stormy’s Majesty, well rated by Hall of Fame jockey Edgar Prado, rebounded from a last-place finish in the Empire Classic to take the 66th running of the Grade 3, $100,000 Discovery Handicap for 3-year-olds on Saturday at Aqueduct Racetrack.

 

Away cleanly, Stormy’s Majesty showed early speed to claim a narrow lead, dictating an opening fraction of 23.77 before relinquishing the top spot to Golden Moka, who led through a half-mile in 47.93. Stormy’s Majesty regained the lead as the field entered the far turn and resisted a challenge from Not Abroad to defeat that rival by two lengths, with Teaks North finishing an additional 1 ¼ lengths behind the winner in third.

 

Stormy’s Majesty completed the one-lap journey around Aqueduct’s 1 1/8-mile main track in 1:50.02 and returned $9.10 for a $2 winning wager as the 7-2 second choice.

 

“He broke sharp, and was in a good position,” said Prado. “I was very happy with where he was. On the backside, I let him go a notch, and he responded well. I was pretty confident most of the way because he was doing everything so easily. He finished well. I think he’s back to his old self. Today, he showed up.”

 

Trainer Dominic Galluscio was pleased with the way the race developed for Stormy’s Majesty, whose most recent effort saw him finish 10th against New York-breds at Belmont Park on October 23.

 

“Edgar [Prado] and I decided to let him run a little bit,” said Galluscio. “In the Empire Classic he got behind and didn’t seem to catch his stride or breathe as well. I was surprised he was on the lead because it looked like there were horses with more speed, but I was very comfortable when they showed the fractions and saw the way Edgar was sitting.”

 

A son of Stormy Atlantic, Stormy’s Majesty races for his breeder, Majesty Stud, and earned $213,732 to date. His record stands at 5-1-0 from seven starts, including a previous stakes win in the Albany for New York-breds at Saratoga Race Course on August 25.

 

Overcommunication overcame a stumble at the start to finish fourth, with Golden Moka, Al Muhtasib, and Dominant Jeannes completing the order of finish.
