Majestic Hussar tired to finish fourth in the Fountain of Youth.

HALLANDALE BEACH, Fla. - Trainer Eddie Kenneally reported that he has sent two of his promising 3-year-old prospects, Majestic Hussar and Bradester, to the farm. Majestic Hussar set the pace before finishing a tiring fourth stretching out around two turns for the first time in the Fountain of Youth. He had defeated Palace Malice in his previous start.

Bradester has won his last two starts, both going 1 1/16 miles, including an entry-level optional claimer when defeating the well-regarded Gunderman and Cerro earlier in the meet.

“Majestic Hussar had a hard race in the Fountain of Youth, so we just decided to back off on him, give him a little more time and have a fresh horse for the summer,” said Kenneally. “Bradester doesn’t have anything major wrong, we just decided he also needed a little freshening. He’s shown lots of potential. Both his two-turn races were very good, and it’s all about the timing in this business. Sometimes you just need to stop and give them a break before it’s too late.”

Determinato keeps rolling

Determinato won for the third time in as many starts this winter, all going five furlongs on the turf, when again leading throughout to beat high-priced optional claiming company in Wednesday’s main event.

Determinato, who is trained by Bill White for owner Ron Marano, was entered under a $62,500 claiming tag, but there were no takers. Determinato was ridden to victory for the third straight time by Luis Saez.

Who got cooked Mark....its the RIGHT WAY to handle a good colt. He's still sound. Sesamoids intact! If you catch my meaning. Give Eddie credit instead of blaming folks for Violence

Violence nothing to do with my comment. Instead of dragging your hate for pletcher into to this maybe read what i said.

Guy put up a hack who has no ability to rate. Ed himself was on the morning of the foy and said his horse wasnt a runaway type. Meaning he could relax while on the lead. 1:08 is a runaway. Horse had zero chance with those tactics. Blame Jock yes but ed put Jock up. No brainer horse is done for awhile. Hope to see him back and ready to go come spring/summer and a stake or two @ belmont/saratoga.

Btw cant wait to beat orb next out.

First off...again, I don't hate; people or horses. Secondly, you blamed Ed for FOY debacle more than once. Jock's fault all the way. You don't know what instructions were given...by all means he may have said MH wants the front so don't fight him....but pretty sure he didn't say the faster the better....secondly I have a good idea that Orb may not win next out as Shug doesn't WANT TO BURN HIM UP before The Derby. He is already in points wise...unlike your idol who has zero point's with numerous chances.

Ha ha. Hate is expression. Hater? Anyway not on here to argue. Just give my opinion here and there. Ed manages all things majestic hussar including who gets on. That falls on him. Therefore so does the brutal ride the horse got. Mismanaged as soon as jock was named. And if he honestly thought he could win going 1:08 then he needs his head examined. Horse is very talented and the owners shot to make derby goes by the wayside after that nightmare of a ride. Zapped.

As far as orb imo he wont win either forida or kentucky derby. And looong way to go to count out tap.

Btw pletcher has backed of 3 of his most promising 3 year olds as well. Darwin Tizracerand his stablemate archwarrior. But by you and the rest of the haters its not the RIGHT WAY if he doesn't run them.

Well least they MAY have a future. And hate is an emotion not an expression. Violence is an expression of hate fueled by jealousy and anger. So who's hating here really?? My guys in already. And Ed has his stakes win over TAP (appropriate initials) with Honorable Dillon in Hutcheson. Who by the way has a nice shot of making Derby himself.

As i have said before. I think ed is solid. Just mismanaged this one for sure imo. Also i have not only said i think hd is talented but that i have already made a considerable score with him and north slope on a double play and the pick 4 and $1,100.00 dime six. As far as my derby horse i let you know the morning of first Saturday in may. Right now cant wait to see verrazano run Saturday.

Hate on hater. Good luck. Hate on hater is an expression. Take the hate out of the expression as i did in original comment and apply it in the comment as i did and you ll understand it wasnt ment literally as the emotion rather the action part of the expression you used while commenting on my post that had zero to do with violence or tap.

Dwyer, Peter Pan, Kings Bishop, Travers, Pennsylvania Derby, etc....smart moves to keep horses happy and fresh.
