Mucho Macho Man wins comeback race
Mucho Macho Man, making his first start since the Belmont Stakes, scored an easy win Wednesday in the $55,000 allowance feature at Aqueduct.
One of only three horses to compete in every Triple Crown race this spring, Mucho Macho Man had been rested since running seventh in the Belmont. He was third in the Kentucky Derby and sixth in the Preakness.
Ramon Dominguez was aboard for trainer Kathy Ritvo as Mucho Macho Man led all the way. The colt defeated Gallant Fields by 5-3/4 lengths for his third win in 12 starts. The time for the one mile was 1 minute, 34.72 seconds.
Mucho Macho Man paid $4.90 for a win bet.
