Mucho Macho Man Heads Saturday BC Worktab

Awesome Again Stakes winner Mucho Macho Man had his penultimate workout Saturday morning prior to the $5 million Breeders’ Cup Classic at Santa Anita on Nov. 2, going five furlongs in 1:02.20.

“Mucho’s” fractional times were 26 1/5 and 40 4/5, with a gallop-out clocking of 1:15 for six furlongs. “He went very well,” trainer Kathy Ritvo said. “He had a great work today and he’ll have one more before the Classic.”

Also working for the Classic was Travers runner-up Moreno, who went five furlongs in company for trainer Eric Guillot in 1:00.60. Workmate Distort This was given 1:01.40. Joe Talamo, who rides Moreno in the Classic, was aboard for the work.

“He went really well,” Guillot said. “He galloped out seven-eighths in (one) 26 and four.”

Caracortado (Turf Sprint) worked six furlongs on the main track in 1:12.20.

“He went real nice and he looks great right now,” trainer Mike Machowsky said of the California-bred gelding. “He finished strong and galloped out good.”

Silver Max (Mile), who upset reigning Horse of the Year Wise Dan in the Shadwell Mile, worked four furlongs for Dale Romans in 46.80, while Authenticity (Distaff) went four furlongs for Todd Pletcher in 47 flat, along with workmate We Miss Artie, who was given the identical clocking.

Also working for Romans was defending Turf winner Little Mike, who went five furlongs on the main track in 1:01. His splits were 23 4/5, 36 2/5, 49 flat and 1:01 flat, with a gallop-out time of 1:15 for six furlongs.

"She’ll have one more breeze (before the Distaff),” said Pletcher assistant Mike McCarthy, who has been at Santa Anita with Authenticity since she ran second to Beholder in the Zenyatta Stakes on Sept. 28.

“It was partly a matter of economics in keeping her here,” McCarthy said. “There was little point in shipping her back to New York after the Zenyatta and then coming back to Santa Anita for the Distaff.”

FrontRunner runner-up Dance With Fate (Juvenile) worked six furlongs for Peter Eurton in 1:12.80.

At Hollywood Park Friday, Rodeo Drive Stakes winner Tiz Flirtatious worked five furlongs on Cushion Track in a minute flat, breezing. “Very nice,” said trainer Marty Jones, who has her ticketed for the $2 million Filly & Mare Turf on Nov. 2.

No I am not chummy with them, or anything like that.
I speak with his owners once in a while and they said he is working lights out since the AA. They said he is happy and is always ready to go in the morning to work. If they are super confident, then so am I. Go MMM!
I am very interested in MMM in the BC Classic, a very serious shot IMHO
