Racing as a homebred for owner/trainer Francis J. Vitale, Max A Million was a stakes-placed competitor at Delaware, Tampa Bay, Gulfstream Monmouth, Calder, Rockingham and Penn National. As a two year old he ran third Tyro Stakes at Monmouth, and as a four year old he showed again in the Florida Thoroughbred Charities Stakes. In a career that spanned 2002 through 2008 Max started 41 times with 4 wins, 4 seconds and 6 thirds for total earnings of $101,951.
Max came to Old Friends in January 2009. Old Friends thanks Francis Vitale for recompensing this equine athlete’s hardworking, successful years on the track with the secure and comfortable retirement he has earned.

Max A Million has the same sire as Peace Rules.  He enjoys the company of his pals Discreet Hero and Easy Grades.
