First Mare In Foal to Aurelius Maximus

The Louisiana-based Aurelius Maximus (Pioneerof the Nile–La Reina, by A.P. Indy) had his first mare confirmed in foal this week.

The durable Pay the Man (Bernstein), owned by Montgomery Equine, is among the first book of mares for Grade II-placed Aurelius Maximus. The Ohio-bred made 76 trips to the post in nine years at the races, winning 27 times (including 21 black-type races) for earnings of $1,058,511.

Aurelius Maximus stands at Adcock’s Red River Farms in Coushatta, LA, for an advertised stud fee of $2,000 LFG with consideration to approved mares.

Aurelius Maximus Retired to Stud in Louisiana

Grade 2-placed Aurelius Maximus  has been retired from racing and will enter stud in 2021 at Jay Adcock’s Red River Farm in Coushatta, La., it was announced today. The deal was brokered by Andrew Cary of Cary Bloodstock.

The 5-year-old son of Pioneerof the Nile will stand in a partnership that includes Stonestreet Stables, George Bolton, and Peter Leidel, who raced the colt, with Nathan Granger.

“Aurelius Maximus is the most exciting horse to retire to Louisiana for many years,” said Cary. “His combination of impeccable pedigree, gorgeous conformation, and top-class ability on the racetrack make him a very tantalizing prospect for breeders in the Southwest.”
