Mucho Macho Man may not have enjoyed the red carpet treatment failing at the final furlongs each time victory would conspire against it with the remaining field in until last season; his campaign this year is probably one of his best in his three year racing career.
With three consecutive wins since last year, preceded by a sizable layoff due to injury, Mucho Macho Man will hopefully next be seen in the Met Mile handicap battling it out with another prized contender, Caleb’s Posse who boasts of the Breeder’s win from last year.
Having won both his starts this four year old season, Mucho Macho Man or more dearly called 3M is in great form this year, as stated by his trainer and owners. The colt, sired by Macho Uno by Holy Bull has started in 14 races in all having finished in the money in 11.
His most disappointing phase happened to be the Triple Crown races when he raised positive anticipations regarding his Derby stint finishing a strong third but failed to stay on the radar; 3M lost devastatingly in the successive two legs of the Crown series finishing sixth and seventh in the Preakness and Belmont Stakes respectively.
The only two other horses that ran in all three Triple Crown legs were Animal Kingdom and Shackleford though they both managed a win respectively in the first two legs of the series. The Belmont Stakes, also the Triple Crown Graveyard indeed turned out to be one when Isn’t he Perfect bumped with him right at the onset of the race leading to a chain reaction where he later clipped heels with Animal Kingdom injuring both and rendering themselves unfit for the remaining season.
Mucho Macho Man made his comeback with an allowance race later during fall and won it with conviction thus marking his comeback.
For the Florida Sunshine Millions Classic Stakes, Mucho Macho Man started against a seven contenders’ field initially pushing the Todd Pletcher trainee, Turbo Compressor for pace but soon establishing lead and maintaining it for the complete distance despite a strong stalking from Ron the Greek who finished a length and a half behind the race winner.
In a similar effort for a mile in the Grade 2 Gulfstream Park Handicap, 3M exhibited an impressive training by his female trainer, Katherine Ritvo, winning the field of five by 2 distinct lengths.
Due to a similarly impressive hold on dirt tracks and a winning performance in the Breeder’s Cup Dirt Mile, Caleb’s Posse is now 3M fans’ favourite contender. The racing fans demand a face off match for the two solid four year old colts this season and Met Mile might just meet the criteria. This year, Caleb’s Posse has won none but managed a second place finish in the Tom Fool Handicap.
