Maximum Security retired

Maximum Security Retires To Ashford Stud

World Champion and Eclipse Award-winning three-year-old Maximum Security

has been retired from racing and is now available for inspection at Ashford Stud where he will stand for 2021. Winner of his only start as a juvenile by 9¾ lengths for owner/breeders Gary & Mary West, Maximum Security was first past the post in all of his four Grade 1 starts as a sophomore winning the Haskell, the Cigar Mile and the Florida Derby and was arguably unlucky to have lost the Kentucky Derby despite having run out an easy winner.
As a four-year-old, Maximum Security won the lucrative Saudi Cup, defeating eight individual Grade 1 winners, before transferring to Bob Baffert for whom he won the San Diego Handicap [G2] and the Pacific Classic Stakes [G1].
The best son of Street Cry’s Breeders’ Cup Juvenile winner New Year’s Day, Maximum Security is a three-parts brother to triple Grade 1 winner Flat Out so he has the pedigree to match his race record and looks. “Maximum Security was an exceptional racehorse and I have no doubt that he will prove very popular with breeders once they see him,” said Ashford’s Director of Sales Charlie O’Connor. “He’s an extremely impressive-looking individual.” 
Maximum Security’s fee has been set at $20,000.

 I hope this star-crossed horse is a successful sire!!!! He always tried his best.

Well said.  Always a fan of his;  he has a lot of heart.  Will never be able to forget when the bouquet of roses was taken from Mrs. West.  The entire proceeding became a hollow victory at this point.  Prayers that he is healthy, safe and sires great runners with as much courage as he has.

My mom is sooooo happy that both Serengeti's owners and Bisou's owners kept their big mares!!!  I think Serengeti will reside at Taylor Made.
