Hall of Fame jockey Kent Desormeaux powered Majesty Stud’s Dr. V’s Magic to three-length victory in the $75,000 Spectacular Bid Division of the New York Stallion Stakes for 3-year-olds at a mile to complete a sweep of the Belmont Park feature races Sunday.

One race earlier, Desormeaux guided favored Laurentide Ice to victory in the $75,000 Cupecoy’s Joy Division for 3-year-old fillies. Both races were at a mile.

In the Spectacular Bid, Dr. V’s Magic raced with the pace of :23.12; :45.92 and 1:10.20 with Texas Elegance, battled with Stunt Man and then drew away to win in 1:36.53 on the fast track. A son of Raffie's Majesty trained by Dominic Galluscio, he paid $10.60 to win.

In the Cupecoy’s Joy Division, Camelia J. Casby’s Laurentide Ice was on her best behavior and, thanks to a solid early pace by City in the Clouds and Zip of Fools, was an easy four-length victor in 1:37.94 for trainer Mark Hennig.

Laurentide Ice, a daughter of Initdab, rewarded her backers with a payoff of $6.70.
