Majesticperfection represented by first winner


Freshman sire Majesticperfection was represented by his first winner on Sunday, when It’s Free prevailed by a neck in a 4 1/2-furlong maiden race at Gulfstream Park.

The dark bay or brown colt is the first foal to race by Majesticperfection, who was a Grade 1-winning sprinter during his on-track career. Majesticperfection stands at Airdrie Stud in Midway, Ky., for an advertised fee of $10,000. He is represented by 79 foals in his initial crop.

Bred in Florida by Rick Sutherland, It’s Free is the first foal out of the unplaced Grand Slam mare Princess Quinn. His second dam is Grade 3 winner Gold Princess. The colt is owned by Reynaldo Perez and trained by Roderick Rodriguez. The final time for the race was 53.30 seconds under jockey Abdiel Jaen.

Majesticperfection won five of six starts during his racing career, highlighted by the Grade 1 Alfred G. Vanderbilt Handicap, for earnings of $310,430. The 8-year-old son of Harlan’s Holiday also set the track record at Prairie Meadows for six furlongs while winning the Iowa Sprint Handicap.
