Mucho Macho Man Prepares for Gulfstream Park 'Cap

Mucho Macho Man breezed five furlongs in 1:02 Saturday morning in preparation for a probable start in the $300,000 Gulfstream Park Handicap (G2) on March 9.

Hall of Fame rider Edgar Prado was aboard, as he was for the 5-year-old son of Macho Uno’s previous two workouts.

“I thought he worked great today,” trainer Kathy Ritvo said.

Mucho Macho Man has been nominated for the Gulfstream Park Handicap.

“I nominated him and that’s our next goal if everything continues to go well,” Ritvo said.

Should Mucho Macho Man run in the mile handicap, it would set up a clash with Fort Larned, who defeated the Reeves Thoroughbreds stable star by just a half-length after a stirring stretch-long duel in the Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1) at Santa Anita on Nov. 3.

Mucho Macho Man finished seventh while favored in the Florida Sunshine Millions Classic at Gulfstream on Jan. 19, a rare off-the-board finish his trainer attributes for a dislike for the sloppy track.

The Florida-bred was equipped with blinkers in that race, but did not wear them in Saturday’s workout.

Defending Gulfstream Park Handicap (G2) winner Mucho Macho Man will miss the March 9 race due to a mild virus.
I hope he is a great horse and deserves to continue racing and wining
