Mucho Macho Man Drills Bullet at Gulfstream

Mucho Macho Man with Mike Smith aboard pull a mild upset in the $350,000 Grade II Suburban Handicap, for 3-year olds & up, at 1 1/8 mile at Belmont Park. Trainer Kathy Ritvo. Owner Reeves Thoroughbred Racing.

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 day.”

            
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.
