Majestic City ran 5 1/2 furlongs in 1:04.16 after setting fractions of 22.01 and 45.47 seconds. He won a maiden race over 4 1/2 furlongs on May 21. In the Proctor, Majestic City faced two first-time starters and a maiden, Truco Latino

By City Zip, Majestic City races for the Majestic Racing Stable partnership and trainer Peter Miller. Bought for $180,000 at the Ocala Breeders Sale of 2-year-olds in-training in March, Majestic City has earned $75,570.

“He ran the way I thought he would, the way he ran first time out,” Miller said. “He was only doing what David asked him to do.”
