Last year’s Breeders’ Cup Classic runner-up Mucho Macho Man, 2013 Sprint winner Trinniberg and South American invader Ever Rider are among the out-of-towners already on hand at Santa Anita preparing for the World Championship events on Nov. 1 and 2.

Mucho Macho Man, trained by Kathy Ritvo, is a candidate for the Classic.

Eclipse champion Trinniberg, conditioned by Shivananda Parbhoo, returns in the Sprint, while Ever Rider, winner of the Group 2 Clasico General Belgrano at Palermo Racetrack in Argentina, is ticketed for the Marathon by trainer Carlos Bianchi.

Last year’s Clasico General Belgrano winner, Calidoscopio, won the Marathon at Santa Anita under Aaron Gryder, becoming the first horse from Argentina to win a Breeders’ Cup race.
