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.
