Mucho Macho Man Possible for Suburban

Mucho Macho Man

Trainer Kathy Ritvo reported Friday that Mucho Macho Man was likely to work Saturday or Sunday at Saratoga Race Course, after which a decision will be made about whether the 4-year-old son of Macho Uno will compete in the Grade 2, $350,000 Suburban Handicap at Belmont Park on July 7. The Suburban is contested at 1 1/8 miles.

 

“We’re not sure yet,” said Ritvo, who trains Mucho Macho Man for Dean and Patti Reeves. “He’s on schedule to work either tomorrow or the next day and we’ll make a decision. He came out of the Alysheba super and he’s doing great.”

 

A dual graded stakes winner, Mucho Macho Man was most recently third in the Grade 2 Alysheba Stakes at Churchill Downs on May 4. Earlier this year, he won the Florida Sunshine Millions Classic and the Grade 2 Gulfstream Park Handicap. As a sophomore, he competed in all three Triple Crown races, with his best finish a third in the Kentucky Derby. Given time off after running seventh in the Belmont, he finished his 3-year-old year with an easy allowance victory at Aqueduct last November.

 

Mucho Macho Man shipped down to Belmont Park last Friday from Saratoga with a pair of horses Ritvo was running that day and turned in his first breeze since the Alysheba, covering four furlongs over the training track in a bullet 46.75. It was recently announced that, effective June 1, Reeves Thoroughbred Racing had acquired Dream Team One Racing Stable’s ownership interest in Mucho Macho Man.
