Mucho Macho Man Has Slow Woodward Move

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.

Multiple graded-stakes winner Mucho Macho Man turned in an easy maintenance drill Sunday morning on the main track in preparation for the Grade 1 Woodward.

 

With exercise rider Nick Petro up, Mucho Macho Man went five furlongs down the middle of the track in 1:02.84, which ranked 21st of 23 works in the morning at the distance.

 

Coming off a commanding 2 ½-length win in the Grade 2 Suburban, the 4-year-old son of Macho Uno will seek his first Grade 1 victory in the Woodward.

 

“We haven’t run him in a Grade 1 stakes since the [2011] Belmont, but the last two races he’s run in were Grade 1-type fields, and he beat them,” said trainer Kathy Ritvo.
