So, I said, ‘Yeah, I’m going back to that TV,” Servis said. “When he broke and Luis decided to go and it looked like he was going to get the lead by himself. I said, ‘That’s good.’”

“Luis walked the dog. He backed them up. I have to give him credit. Think it had a lot to do with it,” he added. “I’m not downgrading the horse, but Luis did a great job.”

Furthermore, Servis did not consider Maximum Security to be a potential con tender for the Kentucky Derby and entered him in a $16,000 claiming race at Gulfstream in December for his debut.

“Candidly, if you read between the lines. There had to be a reason why I ran him for $16,000. Also, I glad I didn’t lose him? Hell, yeah,” Servis said. “Is he training good and sound? Yes. But there was a reason why I ran him for $16,000.”

“I claim a lot of horses. If I’m claiming and I see a homebred, I figure they got what they were dealt. It wasn’t like he was an $180,000 yearling.” he said. “I was taking a shot. I didn’t think he would be claimed.” Next, complete 2019 Kentucky Derby odds.
