G1 Winner and Millionaire ALBERTUS MAXIMUS Retires to Shadwell

Thursday, September 1, 2011

ALBERTUS MAXIMUS, winner of the Donn Handicap-G1 and the $1 million Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile, has been retired from racing and will stand the 2012 breeding season at Shadwell Farm in Lexington, Kentucky. The 7-year-old son of Albert the Great was retired due to injuries that occurred two years ago in the Dubai World Cup-G1, where he finished sixth as the favorite.

"We realized that Albertus was not going to return to his G1 form, so the decision was made to retire him to stud." said Rick Nichols, vice president and general manager of Shadwell Farm. "He is a strongly-made horse with obvious talent on both synthetic and dirt, and raced successfully on both coasts."

ALBERTUS MAXIMUS made headlines when he won the $1 million Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile on the synthetic surface at Santa Anita and the historic Donn Handicap-G1 on dirt at Gulfstream in back-to-back races. Always a consistent graded stakes contender, ALBERTUS MAXIMUS won or placed in 11 of 17 races and earned over $1.3 million. His victories also included the Windy Sands Handicap at Del Mar. In addition, he was second in the Swaps Stakes-G2 and Affirmed Handicap-G3, and in one of his best efforts placed to eventual Dubai World Cup-G1 winner Well Armed in the Goodwood Stakes-G1.

"He's a very professional racehorse," stated conditioner Kiaran McLaughlin, "winning the Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile on all-weather and the Grade 1 Donn Handicap on dirt shows his versatility."

ALBERTUS MAXIMUS is out of the Forty Niner mare Chasethewildwind, who has also produced G3-placed Chasethegold. The millionaire's second dam is Grade 1 winner Race the Wild Wind, whose victories include the Santa Maria Handicap-G1. Race the Wild Wind has produced Champion 3-year-old King Charlemagne and G3 winner Meshaheer, as well as the dam of Forego Stakes-G1 winner Here Comes Ben.

Shadwell would like to give every opportunity for success for ALBERTUS MAXIMUS at stud. In view of the fact that he has been out of the public's eye for such an extended period, the 2012 stud fee will be waived for approved mares. In addition, a bonus of $5,000 will be awarded to the breeder of the first winner sired by ALBERTUS MAXIMUS, and a bonus of $10,000 will be awarded to the breeder of the first blacktype winner sired by him. For more information, please contact Kent Barnes at Shadwell Farm. He can be reached by telephone at (859) 224-4585.
