Mucho Macho Man seeks his fourth straight win when he takes on nine others in Friday's Grade 2 Alysheba Stakes at Churchill Downs. 

 

Third in last year's Kentucky Derby, Mucho Macho Man was given a breather after disappointing in the final two legs of the 2011 Triple Crown series. He returned with a sharp optional claiming score at Aqueduct in November and exits back-to-back stakes wins at Gulfstream Park. The Kathy Ritvo trainee is 2-for-2 at a mile and a sixteenth and Dominguez sticks with the 2-1 morning line favorite.

 

Nates Mineshaft is a sharp wire job threat breaking from the rail. The Fair Grounds specialist is 4-for-4 at today's distance. 

 

Successful Dan is a 6-year-old gelding making just his tenth lifetime start. The fragile sort missed all of 2011 and ran his Keeneland record to a perfect 4-for-4 with a seven panel win off a lengthy vacation April 6.

 

Apart has not been seen since finishing 9th in Saratoga's Grade 1 Whitney last summer. He likes this distance and owns a pair of local wins.

 

Fort Larned, Golden Yank, Boxeur des Rues, Plutonium, Our Dark Knight, and Colizeo complete the lineup.
