Edited press release

Bloom Racing Stable and Irish Hill & Dutchess Views Stallions LLC are sad to report that multiple graded stakes winner and successful New York Stallion Majestic City was humanely euthanized November 8 due to worsening complications of laminitis.

Majestic City, a 13-year-old by City Zip out of the Meadowlake mare It’schemistrybaby, was a precocious winner of his first three races including the Grade 3 Hollywood Juvenile Championship Stakes. He would go on to win or be placed in seven other stakes, including placings in two Grade 1s. He competed at the graded stakes level through his 6-year-old campaign.

Majestic City began his stud career in New York in 2016 and is the sire of four crops to race with progeny earnings of more than $2 million. He was a leading sire of his class in New York for the past four years. Majestic City has three more crops to race.

Irish Hill & Dutchess Views Stallions LLC Stallion Manager, Bill Leak noted that “Majestic City will be sorely missed by myself and the entire IHDV team. He was a horse you could measure others against and only hope they can come close to his quality.”

Jeff Bloom, who campaigned Majestic City and bred many mares to him throughout the years, reflected back on Majestic City’s life and added “Majestic City was my first purchase and the foundation of Bloom Racing Stable. He had a larger-than-life personality and will be forever missed. He provided us with so many wonderful experiences throughout his career and I am thrilled that we still get to see his progeny on the racetrack carry so many of his fabulous characteristics.”
