THE focus of attention last weekend, from an American classic perspective, fell on Maxfield, the 2019 Grade 1 Claiborne Breeders’ Futurity winner at Keeneland on his second start.

He stretched his unbeaten run to three on his 2020 debut in the Grade 3 Matt Winn Stakes over a mile and half a furlong at Churchill Downs. Owned and bred by Godolphin, he is trained by Brendan Walsh.
