Maximum Security made his return to the races yesterday by winning the Grade 2 San Diego Handicap, beating Midcourt by a nose while giving away 5 pounds to him. What a gritty horse! He really dug deep. So did Midcourt, for that matter. It was an exciting race. Baffert said he did not have Max really cranked up, as this race was really a prep for the Pacific Coast Classic, but Max is all heart.
