Maximum Security has now worked twice since crossing the line first in the 2019 Kentucky Derby, and trainer Jason Servis was pleased with the colt's exercise despite Monmouth's clockers not crediting him with an official breeze time. The 3-year-old son of New Year's Day was sent out to two-minute lick over a mile then gallop out another furlong, according to drf.com.

Servis timed the one-mile workout in 1:58, with a gallop-out of 2:10. Maximum Security could make his next start in the June 16 Pegasus Stakes at Monmouth, or he could train up to the Grade 1 Haskell on July 20.

“We'll take it race by race, whether it's the Pegasus or the Haskell,” Servis said. “I probably won't make a decision until his next breeze. We'll probably send him out again in seven, eight, or nine days.”
