, looking to become the fifth individual winner for his freshman sire (by A.P. Indy), did so with ease as he relished the underfoot conditions here. Overlooked at 7-1 odds breaking widest of all, he stalked the early pace as favored Rugged (Distorted Humor) and Ithastobegone (Yes It's True) argued the pace. Majestic Hussar ranged up four wide under his own resolve and jockey Jose Lezcano just had to point him in the right direction as the pair edged off to an unextended six-length win. Fellow firster Casino Day (Flashy Bull) was second, with Ithastobegone holding for third. The winner is a half brother to Danse Grecque (Hold That Tiger), MGSP-Fr, $168,736; and Joes Blazing Aaron (Graeme Hall), GSW, $146,656.
