Majestic Reason shows her talent in Miss Disco Stakes - Maryland Horse Breeders Association

Ellen Charles and Richard Golden’s homebred filly Majestic Reason became a stakes winner in just her third career start, powering through the stretch for a length and a quarter triumph in the $75,000 Miss Disco for 3-year-old fillies on Maryland Pride Day, Aug. 18, at Laurel Park.

A narrow second choice in the field of eight at 2-1, Majestic Reason finished the six furlongs in 1:10.80 over a fast main track. Pacesetting favorite Zorally held on for second, a nose ahead of Caught Dream’n.
Unraced at 2, Majestic Reason debuted with a one and three-quarter length maiden special weight victory June 8 going the Miss Disco distance, then was a well-beaten second as the favorite when stretched out to seven furlongs in an open entry-level allowance over older horses July 14, both races coming at Laurel.
“Jorge had a lot of confidence in her. I was a little concerned after coming back and getting beat in the a-other-than but she had done well since and she ran a really good race today,” winning trainer Graham Motion said. “She kind of had to take the worst of it. They did go quick which obviously helped her. I don’t know exactly what this filly is going to want to do. I would imagine she’d go further, but she’s pretty quick.”
Charles campaigned Majestic Reason’s dam Love's Reason, a daughter of Not For Love and winner of the 2010 Maryland Juvenile Filly Championship. The first three foals out of the mare are stakes-performers: Jump for Love, a filly by Jump Start, finished third in the Maryland Juvenile Filly Championship in 2015; Good Reasoning, a 2014 gelding by Scat Daddy, finished third in the 2017 Caveat Stakes; and Majestic Reason. The mare has an unnamed yearling by Munnings and foaled a filly by Bandbox this past February. She was bred back to Hard Spun for 2019.
