Marianne Chase

Breeder and owners Marianne and Brandon Chase made a trainer change to Vladimir Cerin in the summer of 2008, and the move paid quick dividends when Cerin saddled Albertus Maximus for the biggest victory of his career in the second running of the Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile on the Pro-Ride surface at Santa Anita Park that October. Ridden by Garrett Gomez, the 4-year-old son of Albert The Great was steadied in traffic in the backstretch, but rallied five-wide into the stretch to win going away by 1 1/4 lengths over Rebellion. Sent off at odds of $6.30-1, Albertus Maximus narrowly missed the track record with his 1:33.41 clocking for the mile.

The colt was purchased privately after his Breeders’ Cup success and went on to win the 2009 Donn Handicap at Gulfstream Park for new trainer Kiaran McLaughlin, who then took him to the Dubai World Cup where he finished sixth. Albertus Maximus was retired to Shadwell Farm in Lexington, Ky., in 2001.
