FASTEST MAX notched his second win in a row after rallying to take a six-furlong allowance by a neck. The 3-year-old son of ALBERTUS MAXIMUS was never more than 2 1/4 lengths back as he raced five wide down the backstretch. Three wide as he circled the frontrunners on the turn, he took the lead in upper stretch and was first to the wire at Mahoning Valley. FASTEST MAX has now won three of his last five starts, including a 7 3/4-lengh Maiden Special Weight tally. He was bred by Jennifer M. Thorpe DVM out of the Trippi mare, Looney Lynda.
