Mucho Macho Man Breezes for BC Classic

Breeders’ Cup Classic contender Mucho Macho Man had his first official breeze Saturday since winning the Grade I Awesome Again Stakes on Sept. 28, going four furlongs on Santa Anita’s main track in 47.40. He worked in company with stablemate Skinny Peter, who was clocked in 48 flat.

“He went very well,” trainer Kathy Ritvo said of Mucho Macho Man. “When he works in company, Skinny Peter is always his workmate.”

Mucho Macho Man’s drill was one of 177 on Santa Anita’s work tab Saturday, which included several Breeders’ Cup candidates.

Authenticity (Distaff) worked four furlongs in a bullet 46.20 for Todd Pletcher assistant Mike McCarthy; Caracortado (Turf Sprint) went four furlongs in 48, breezing, for Mike Machowsky; and Moreno (Classic) went the same distance in 48 flat for Eric Guillot.

“Perfect” is how Machowsky termed Caracortado’s move. “We’ll probably work six furlongs next week.”

On a firm turf course, defending Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint winner Mizdirection went six furlongs in a bullet 1:11.80. “All’s good,” trainer Mike Puype said. “We’re moving forward.”

Eddie D. winner Chips All In (Turf Sprint) went five furlongs 1:01.60 for Jeff Mullins.
