Impressive Wire-To-Wire First Winner for Silver Max

07.21.2019 -

Maxis Babe rocketed out of the gate to establish a clear lead and never looked back en route to a sparkling Maiden victory at Woodbine Racecourse. Favored at 3-5, the juvenile filly is the first winner by record-setting Grade 1 winner Silver Max.

"Rafael Hernandez has not been tested on Maxis Babe, and won't be!" exclaimed Woodbine track announcer Robert Geller. "Maxis Babe striding free for a big win here....she's absolutely run them ragged".



Her final margin of victory was 4 3/4 lengths.

Bred by Adena Springs, Maxis Babe was purchased for $18,000 at last summer's CTHS Yearling sale. She's trained by Norman McKnight and races in the colors of Racer's Edge, Inc. and Maxis Stable. The bay is out of the Holy Bull daughter Bazooka Babe, a half-sister to Stronach Stables homebred Preakness S. (G1) champion Red Bullet.

The speedy Silver Max won all 12 of his races in gate-to-wire fashion, seven of them at the Graded level. His signature victory came in the Grade 1 Shadwell Turf Mile where he handed the great 2-time Horse of the Year Wise Dan his only defeat in his final 15 starts.
