Maximus was started at polo proving a lovely horse to ride, stick & ball and play. However, he got kicked during chukkas and was retired. His full sister Stella won BPP at the 2017 Queensland Silver Cup. Another full sister Tutu played very well, won a BPP, was in the winning 2015 Hector King Team and is Fiola’s best horse. His full brother General and his half-brother the stallion Gold Dust played very well overseas. Cole Aguirre selected General when he was given the pick of the horses for his 21st birthday and he was his best horse to play overseas.
His dam was the highly rated TB international polo mare U2 who started playing in Australia before excelling in England and Spain. She was a compact chestnut TB mare 15.1 hh with a star and small strip. She had a lovely head and took to polo as a real natural. High goal Los Tamaros Patron Bob Aguirre rated her as one of his best ever. It was decided her feats playing overseas warranted her return to Australia to be used as a broodmare. She was a good type, a natural and just so easy to play. Maximus is by the proven sire Timorpolo Patton who is out of the top Never In Doubt polo mare Mirawala and by international sire Monty.
