Mucho Macho Man Breezes for Sunshine Millions Classic

Mucho Macho Man breezed half-mile at Gulfstream Saturday morning in preparation for a start in the $500,000 Florida Sunshine Millions Classic on Jan. 19. Exercise rider Nick Petro Jr. was aboard for the breeze, timed in :46 1/5  on splits of :11 2/5, :22 2/5 and :34 3/5 before galloping out in a minute.

“He went really good,” said trainer Kathy Ritvo, whose soon-to-be 5-year-old was equipped with blinkers for the workout. “He likes to train. He’s a horse that’s happiest when he trains."

Mucho Macho Man, who defeated Ron the Greek to capture the Florida Sunshine Millions Classic last year, concluded a productive 2012 campaign with a close second-place finish behind Fort Larned in the $5 million Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1) at Santa Anita on Nov. 3.

It wont be if he only races 4 or 5 times and only tries G1 company 1 or 2 times.... He needs to be entered in the big dances.
I've liked Ritvo's pace with him, too, though I do believe she could have tried him in more G1s. However, even though he ran well as a 3-YO, I consider him more of a late bloomer for several reasons. I've said it a million times, but I'll say it again: he's gotten better as he's gotten older, and I truly believe that this will be his year.
Hes 5 years old..and a horse with major potential? Do you agree? Why does he not have a G1 win? Racing once in 2 months is ridiculous for this guy IMO
he a big boy... I like her pace with him and how she keeps his mentality sane... great job!
Be more aggressive with your horse Ritvo....7-9 starts 6 G1 races lets go....
