Improbable meets Maximum Security in the Awesome Again at Santa Anita…
Starting last spring, these two were highly rated colts met in the Kentucky Derby with Improbable off at odds of 4/1 and Maximum Security off at 4.5/1. As often happens, the better horse is also the bigger price, at least on that particular day. Maximum Security thoroughly trounce Improbabl on the track. But that is just a single day in the life of two colts. Since then, they have both traveled their own and in the case of Max Security “improbable” road… to meet once again on Saturday, September 26, 2020…
This is an important race, as the winner gets into the Breeders Cup without any further need to race, making all options available to the great Bob Baffert in his handling of the winning colt. But the losing colt, will present some issues for the same great Bob Baffert to solve, as he is the trainer of both colts – for those of you who are new to the game!
This should be a great throw down… and with Improbable developing very nicely this season and Max Security one of the most competitive and gritty horses we have seen for a long time… this could be a real thriller… let’s hope it is and we have much more to discuss come next week.
