Gary Stevens is counting down until reuniting with Breeders’ Cup Classic winner Mucho Macho Man in next Saturday’s $400,000 Sunshine Millions Classic at Gulfstream Park.
“I’m looking forward to it,” Stevens said Sunday morning. “It’s his first race of the year off a little bit of a layoff, but I’ve got nothing but confidence in the horse. I’ve been in contact with Kathy (trainer Kathy Ritvo) and Finn (Racing Manager Finn Green).
“The horse had a great workout yesterday (four furlongs in 47.87) in his final tune-up for the race, so we’re just keeping our fingers crossed for good weather. I hope it’s not like it was this past Friday, when they raced on a sloppy track. It’s in the hands of the weather man.”
