Easy Gallop for Mucho Macho Man

2011 Belmont Stakes logo.

Mucho Macho Man, third in the Kentucky Derby and sixth in the Preakness Stakes, went to the Belmont training track Thursday morning for an easy one-mile clockwise gallop for trainer Kathy Ritvo.


The son of Macho Uno then received a cooling hose bath before settling into his stall with a fan blowing on him for the afternoon.


Ritvo has been changing up Mucho Macho Man’s routine a bit from day to day, with no set galloping schedule.


Owner Dean Reeves showed up at the barn in high spirits the day after saying at the Belmont draw breakfast, “We think we have the best horse in the country.”


“He needs to prove it,” Reeves said. “I don’t know if it’s this week, but he will prove it.”
