Mucho Macho Man Doing Well at Gulfstream

Mucho Macho Man breezed a half-mile in 46 3/5 seconds Saturday morning before galloping out five furlongs in 59 3/5 seconds under exercise rider Nick Petro Jr. The 5-year-old son of Macho Uno is scheduled to defend his title in the $400,000 Florida Sunshine Millions Classic at Gulfstream Park on Jan. 19.

"He went good,” trainer Kathy Ritvo said. “He’s doing really well.”

Mucho Macho Man, who defeated Ron the Greek by 1 ½ lengths in last year’s Classic, is coming off a second-place finish in the $5 million Breeders’ Cup Classic, in which he finished a half-length behind Fort Larned. 

“I can’t describe the feeling,” said Petro when asked how it feels riding the long-striding multiple-stakes winner. “It’s like riding a train.”

Another horse on Gulfstream's main track Saturday morning was Breeders' Cup Turf (G1) and Arlington Million (G1) winner Little Mike, who worked for the first time this year, going a very easy half mile in :50. The gelding is getting ready for a trip to Dubai later this winter.

Mucho Macho Man is doing great and showing his fans he has matured alot and is showing he is very competitive to the five year old horses. He was good when he was three years old. He is shining now and will do even better in the Sunshine Millions.
