Trainer Kathy Ritvo said Sunday that Mucho Macho Man emerged from his impressive victory in Saturday’s Grade 2 Suburban in good order and was relaxing at the Spa.
“We’re already back in Saratoga and everything’s great,”
said Ritvo, who trains the colt for Dean and Patti Reeves. “He came
out of it very good.”
The 4-year-old son of Macho Uno has won three out of four
starts this year, notching victories in the Florida Sunshine Millions
Classic and the Grade 2 Gulfstream Park Handicap in addition to the
Suburban. He was third in the Grade 2 Alysheba Stakes at Churchill
Downs on the May 4 Kentucky Derby undercard.
No plans have been made for Mucho Macho Man’s next start.
He earned a preliminary Beyer Speed Figure of 108 for his 2 ½-length
triumph in the Suburban under Hall of Famer Mike Smith.
