Santa Anita Gold Cup winner (GI) and multiple Graded-Stakes winner, Majestic Harbor has sired his first foal: a filly out of the mare Gettem Up Girl.

The long-legged chestnut filly arrived before dawn at Springcliff Farm in Martinsville, Indiana.  “She’s big!” said Christine Cagle, the farm’s owner.  “We are so excited to have the first one, and if this filly is an indicator of what he’s going to throw, it’s exciting! She was up and nursing within the hour and I think she will be four inches taller than she is now once she comes up in her pasterns.”

Majestic Harbor stands at Swifty Farms in Seymour, Indiana for $4,000 fee and is owned by Gallant Stables, who campaigned Majestic Harbor throughout his racing career from age 2 to 8.

The sire, a son of Rockport Harbor, compiled a 10-8-7 record from 42 starts at 10 different racetracks on his way to earning $1,295,814. Majestic Harbor won at distances from a mile to 1 1/2 miles and competed in 27 stakes races, 23 of them graded.

Although he was best known for winning the Gold Cup at Santa Anita, at age 6, over a fine group of others colts and geldings that included the likes of Clubhouse Ride, Imperative, Game on Dude and others, he also won the G3 Tokyo City Cup Stakes at Santa Anita, and both the G2 Alysheba Stakes at Churchill Downs and the G3 Mineshaft Stakes at the Fair Grounds at the ripe, young age of 8.

Gettem Up Girl is owned by the Estate of Paul Atkin.

Tim Glyshaw who trained Gettem Up Girl for Atkin, remarked that she was also known as a hard-knocking race horse – winning 15 of her 55 starts, and hitting the board 21 times.

In addition to the first filly, many more sons and daughters are expected on the delivery room, er, stall floor in the weeks and months ahead. One of which, we hope, will be delivered by Diamond Seeker, a mare owned by The Pressbox’s own Gene McLean and Deerfield Farm, one of the primary owners of Majestic Harbor.

We are looking forward to that spy baby this Spring.
