Email

Majestic Stream took advantage of his rail post and led throughout for a nine and a quarter length win over 2-5 favorite Mr. Trieste in the $66,000 Veterans Stakes at Zia Park on Sunday. It was another neck back in third to Don't Strike Out.

Majestic Stream ($25.40) got an opening half-mile in 50.80 seconds, and remained in control of the race through six furlongs in 1:15.60. He proceeded to cover the mile and a sixteenth in 1:47.80.

Chris Zamora rode Majestic Stream for owner-trainer Clyde Veltmann. The horse has now won 4 of 11 starts and $127,296. Majestic Stream is a 3-year-old by Fusaichi Pegasus, and a candidate for the $150,000 Zia Park Derby on Dec. 9.
