Majestic City is being pointed to the Breeders' Cup Juvenile at Churchill Downs.

ARCADIA, Calif. – Majestic City, second to Dullahan in the Grade 1 Breeders’ Futurity at Keeneland last Saturday, will be pointed to the BC Juvenile on Nov. 5 and will be considered for two other races that weekend at Churchill Downs, trainer Peter Miller said Monday.

The winner of two sprint stakes at Hollywood Park in the summer, Majestic City’s primary goal is the BC Juvenile, but Miller is not ruling a start in the BC Juvenile Turf or the BC Juvenile Sprint.

Owned by Jeff Bloom, Majestic City led for much of the Breeders’ Futurity over 1 1/16 miles and was caught in the final sixteenth, losing by three-quarters of a length.

“I thought he ran an awesome race,” Miller said.
