Multiple Grade 1 winner Maxfield will shuttle to Haras Firmamento in the Buenos Aires Province of Argentina for the 2023 Southern Hemisphere breeding season.

The announcement was made Wednesday via Darley America's social media channels.

Maxfield, a 6-year-old son of Street Sense, is in the midst of his second season at stud at Darley's Lexington, Ky., stallion operation, where he stands for an advertised fee of $40,000.

“We are very excited with what we're seeing from Maxfield's first crop hitting the ground this year, and are pleased to be able to team up with a stud farm as prestigious as Haras Firmamento,” said Darley sales manager Darren Fox.

Maxfield won eight of 11 starts during his on-track career, earning $2,001,812 as a homebred for the Godolphin operation, trained by Brendan Walsh.

He won the Grade 1 Breeders' Futurity at two, then he came back during his 3-year-old campaign to win G3 Matt Winn Stakes at Churchill Downs. He experienced his strongest season at age four, winning the G1 Clark Stakes, along with victories in the G2 Stephen Foster Stakes and Alysheba Stakes and the G3 Mineshaft Stakes.

Maxfield is out of the winning Bernardini mare Velvety, with an extended family that includes champion Outstandingly, Grade 1 winners Sky Mesa and Matareya, and prominent sire Bernstein.
