Maximum Security has been defeated in his first start since being disqualified since the winner of the Kentucky Derby.
The colt lined up in Monmouth Park in New Jersey on Sunday (Monday AEST) since the overwhelming favorite but was defeated by King For A Day.
He stumbled in the beginning but got into the lead before assuming control in the straight to win by a length with King For A Day stalking him.
«I feel the next race will probably be greater,» Maximum Security’s coach Jason Servis said.
«We had to get that out of the way. I was happy to get it out of the way even though he got beat.»
It marked the first time Maximum Security was beaten in six starts, and also the stumble could have been the difference.
«It was a difficult week,» Servis, that had debated whether to conduct Maximum Security since he was not convinced he was prepared, said.
«He was feeling pretty good this morning. He jumped and kicking. However, the stumble hurt us much.»
King For A Day was the second favourite after his win at the Sir Barton in Pimlico on the Preakness undercard.
Founded by Mary and Gary West, Maximum Security ended 1-3/4 lengths before Country House at the Kentucky Derby but was disqualified by Churchill Downs stewards for interference to eventual Preakness winner War Will.
The Wests are challenging the Kentucky Derby disqualification in court.
Maximum Security is expected to run at the Haskell Invitational.
