Trot Insider has learned that 2023 Breeders Crown winner Max Contract has new owners since that prestigious victory, and those new connections have officially transitioned the pacing star into a potential producer.

A daughter of Huntsville - Big McDeal, Max Contract made 27 starts in three years of competition, amassing a summary of 15-1-5 with $658,405 in earnings. She took her mark of 1:48.3 in winning the 2022 Mistletoe Shalee at The Meadowlands in stakes record time, and paced back to that mark as a four-year-old in an Open win at The Red Mile last September.

Trained by Julie Miller throughout her career, Max Contract also captured the Shady Daisy, Empire Breeders Classic and Betsy Ross Invitational but her biggest win came in the 2023 Breeders Crown Open Mare Pace. After starting a first-over attack for driver Andy Miller, Max Contract followed the cover of Kobes Gigi around the far turn at Harrah's Hoosier Park and then angled past that rival in the stretch to win by a length in 1:50.2 for owners Andy Miller Stable and Jean Goehlen.

After her appearance in the TVG/FanDuel Open Mares Pace, Max Contract was purchased for an undisclosed sum by Hunterton Farms' Steve Stewart and Indiana-based Black Creek Farm, Maumee River Stables and Conquest Acres LP.

"We are very fortunate that Julie wanted her to come to Hunterton when she retired her," said Stewart, noting that Max Contract has been bred to Confederate.
