Derby Entrant Majesto Coming Off Solid Maiden Win

Florida Derby entrant Majesto, owned by Grupo 7c Racing Stable, has been getting some attention following his impressive maiden-breaking win at 1 1/16 miles on turf at Gulfsteam on Feb. 27.

That was Majesto's fifth career race, and it came when he had gotten past a series of back problems,  Carlos Luis Giardinello, Grupo 7c's manger.

On Feb. 27, Majesto stalked the pace, took the lead in mid stretch and won by a length over Dig Deep in the solid time of 1;44.00.

In contrast Mohaymen won the Fountain of Youth in 1:42.64 later in the day..

Still, Majesto is getting some attention as a good candidate to hit the trifecta.

Giardinello said he expects that Majesto will run a strong race today, be within striking distance eneterung the stretch and then make a strong run to the finish.

Javier Castellano has the return mount today on Majesto, who is trained by Gustavo Delgado.

Majesto has run twice in 1 1/8 mile maiden special weight races, finishing third in an 11-horse field and sixth  in a 14-horse field.
