Maxfield | Coady

Godolphin’s Maxfield (Street Sense) exited his victory in Saturday’s GIII Matt Winn S. in fine shape, according to trainer Brendan Walsh. Plans for the handsome colt’s next start are still undecided.

“I have just been thinking all along to go one race at a time with this colt,” Walsh said. “We’ll talk it over with the Godolphin team and plan for our next target, whatever that may be.”

Maxfield’s win in the Matt Winn took his lifetime record to a perfect three-for-three and earned him 50 points on the Road to the Kentucky Derby to move to ninth place on the leaderboard with a total of 60 points. A debut winner at Churchill last November, Maxfield won the GI Claiborne Breeders’ Futurity in October before missing the GI Breeders’ Cup Juvenile due to an ankle injury.

“The most impressive thing about this horse is how he handles everything so well mentally,” Walsh said. “He’s such a cool horse and nothing really bothers him. Along with his athletic ability, his mental state is a really strong one-two punch.”
