Unbeaten Maxfield Records First Breeze On Comeback Trail

Godolphin homebred Maxfield was back on the work tab for the first time in four months, posting a three-eighths of mile breeze in :37.40 Sunday morning at Keeneland in Lexington, Ky.

Winner of the Breeders’ Futurity (G1) at Keeneland last fall and the Matt Winn (G3) at Churchill Downs in May in his lone 2020 start, Maxfield was sidelined in June by a condylar fracture of his right front. He began jogging at Churchill the middle of September and has been galloping at Keeneland since the first of October.

“We are kicking a few ideas around but there is nothing planned for him right now,” trainer Brendan Walsh said after the work about Maxfield’s possible return to racing.

A 3-year-old colt by Street Sense, Maxfield was produced from the Bernardini mare Velvety, the latter a half-sister to G1 winner Sky Mesa. Maxfield deputed at Churchill on Sept. 14, 2019, coming from well off the pace to win a one-mile maiden race by three-quarters of a length. His Breeders’ Futurity victory was even more impressive, rallying from ninth to win by 5 1/2 lengths going away.
