Reeves Thoroughbred Racing’s 5-year-old Mucho Macho Man worked a
'bullet' five furlongs in :58 3/5 Saturday morning at Gulfstream Park
with regular exercise rider Nick Petro, Jr. Working for the second
consecutive time in blinkers, Mucho Macho Man continues looking sharp
for his highly-anticipated 2013 season debut in the $400,000 Florida
Sunshine Millions Classic to be run Saturday, Jan. 19.
“He went very well,” said trainer Kathy Ritvo. “He worked in
blinkers again, but we haven’t decided whether to use them for the race.
He’ll have one more work. We’ll look at the weather to decide what
Mucho Macho Man will be making his first start since his game runner-up
effort behind Fort Larned in the $5 million Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1)
at Santa Anita on Nov. 3. The son of Macho Uno won the nine-furlong
Sunshine Millions Classic here last year with Ron the Greek second to
launch his 2012 campaign.
