Majestic Player A, the Indiana-owned standout trotter of 2020, continues to lead the way in North America for wins. The six-year-old gelded son of Majestic Son was acquired by Brian Carsey in September of 2019 and is now owned by Carsey, Jeff Fought Racing and Casey Myers.
Conditioned by Walter Haynes Jr., Majestic Player A won his last start the final weekend of racing at Harrah’s Hoosier Park to mark his 15th win of 2020. He leads all trotters in North America for wins, trailed closely by JessieJesorJessica, who was a winner Monday at The Meadows to earn her 14th win of 2020. Designer Specs, a two-year-old Ohio bred trotting filly, completed the year with a perfect 14 for 14 this season.
Majestic Player A has been consistent all season long, winning in early 2020 and finishing up the season with wins. In all, he now has earnings in excess of $333,000 and took a mark of 1:51.1 at Harrah’s Hoosier Park this summer, which equaled the track record. According to Harnesslink.com, the mile also made him the fastest Australian-bred trotter in history.
Leading the way for pacers with two weeks of racing left in 2020 is Big Petes Style, an eight-year-old gelding who won 17 of 35 starts this year. Slippin the Clutch, a three-year-old pacing colt, was right behind him with 16 wins followed by five with 15 wins apiece, including the standout Party Girl Hill, who went 15 for 16 this year.
