This starting position has yielded a mere one win in twenty-nine starts, none since 1999.

Trainer Gustavo Delgado was at least honest in his assessment of this post position.

“I’d prefer a little more inside, but I cannot change it. But remember he’s a strong horse.”

Majesto’s 2nd place finish in his most recent and only graded race, the Florida Derby, certainly raised some eyebrows for the Venezuelan contender.

“Majesto, I expected glory with that name,” said owner Jesus Ceballos, who came up with it by combining the names of his sons Mauro and Jesus. “I’ve been dreaming about this moment since I was six years old. We expect to do the very best.”

Last year, Delgado’s horses won 47 races and earned $1.7 million, finishing in the money a solid 40.5% of the time. This year, his horses have finished in the top-three in 43.4% of their starts.

“It was very difficult in Venezuela,” he said. “I’m very happy to be only two years in the United States and running int he Derby. It’s very important to me in my profession. It’s an amazing story.”
