MAXIMUS OBSESSION notched his third victory from four career starts when he was awarded first place in this one-mile allowance race at Presque Isle Downs. The 3-year-old colt from the second crop of ALBERTUS MAXIMUS was part of a chain reaction at the start which caused him to trail the field for the 1/2 mile. He began his rally on the far turn, was four wide turning for home and closed through the stretch to make it a 3/4-length difference. MAXIMUS OBSESSION was a debut Maiden Special Weight winner by 4 1/2 lengths and then was a 9 3/4-length winner in his second start. His only other start was a runner-up finish last time out. Out of the Tale of the Cat mare, Bob’s Obsession, MAXIMUS OBSESSION is owned and trained by his breeder Sherman S. Mitchell.
