Earlier this week Trevor McCarthy won 2019 Maryland Jockey of the Year and Majestic Reason won the category for the Best Older filly of 2019. They teemed up again today in the Grade 3 Barbara Fritchie. Majestic has never won further than 6f and today’s race was 7f. Trevor showed why he is such a good judge of pace, which in turn makes a good jockey, as he settled her well in third place to let the pacesetters go fast in front. In fact at one stage it looked as if she’d relaxed too much as everyone else got going! No worries, she got going well too and won very easily in the end. She was also 10-1! Congratulations to owners Hillwood Stable and Richard Golden.
