I am absolutely positive that if this poor horse died under the care of Baffert, it would have made national headlines as "another horse of Baffert dies"---- The death of Cezanne under the care of Pletcher barely made the news in horse publications. The horse developed an infection in June- not sure when he died, but no notice of this death was made quickly that is for sure.

Albertus Maximus has died due to a paddock accident. My condolences to Old Firends and his connections.:(

GEORGETOWN, KY – OCT. 8, 2022 – Breeders’ Cup Champion Albertus Maximus has died.

Recently pensioned to Old Friends Thoroughbred Retirement from Shadwell’s Nashwan Stud, the 18-year-old stallion suffered a paddock accident that proved fatal, though a full necropsy is still pending.

The son of Old Friends retiree Albert the Great, out of the Forty Niner mare Chasethewildwind, Albertus Maximus broke his maiden as a three-year-old at Santa Anita.

The following year he proved not only his talent but his versatility when he captured his first graded stakes, the 2008 GR1 Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile, on synthetic surface, again at Santa Anita. He followed that with a win on the dirt in the 2009 GR1 Donn Handicap at Gulfstream. 

In addition, he captured the Windy Sands Handicap at a mile at Del Mar and was graded stakes-placed three times.

Albertus was retired from racing in 2012 due to injuries that occurred in his last start, the 2010 Dubai World Cup, where he finished sixth as the favorite. He spent his stud career at His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum’s Shadwell Farm near Lexington.

He closed out his career with 6 wins from 17 starts and earnings of $1,328.230.

“Albertus Maximus inherited his sire’s self-confidence,” said Old Friends President Michael Blowen. “Like Albert the Great, Albertus was well aware of his extraordinary talents. If he wasn’t the friendliest retiree, he was very handsome and knew it­­--and we specialize in superstars.”
