2YO MAXIMUM FORCE Rallies to Take Maiden Special

Runner-up in his debut some seven lengths in front of the third-place finisher, MAXIMUM FORCE rallied through the stretch in his second start to win an off-the-turf Maiden Special Weight by 1 1 /4 lengths. In this 1 mile & 70-yard main track event, the 2-year-old son of ALBERTUS MAXIMUS raced five wide for most of his trip. He was still eight lengths back after six furlongs, but continued his closing effort around the far turn and down the lane to be clear by midstretch and get the win at Belterra Park. MAXIMUM FORCE was bred in Kentucky by Kathleen A. Sanderson out of the Bandini mare, Bandini Girl.
