MAXIMIAN Rallies to Win Fair Grounds Maiden by 3

Making only his third start and first try on dirt, MAXIMIAN drew clear through the stretch to win this one mile test on the main track at Fair Grounds by three lengths. The 3-year-old colt from the first crop of G1 SW Millionaire ALBERTUS MAXIMUS settled off the pace just 3 1/2 lengths off the lead after the first half mile. He began his rally going three wide on the far turn eventually taking the lead near the top of the stretch and pulled away for the win. Bred by Makadam Farms, LLC, Ian Medina and Kiana Medina out of the Real Quiet mare Michele’s Baby, MAXIMIAN is trained by Steve Asmussen for Sterling Krumbine.
