At Saratoga, Breeders’ Cup Classic candidate Mucho Macho Man worked three furlongs in 34.72 seconds over a muddy Oklahoma training track Monday morning, his first breeze since finishing second behind To Honor and Serve in the Woodward on Sept. 1.

Though the track was wet, trainer Kathy Ritvo though it safe enough to begin breezing toward the Breeders’ Cup.

“He had a good time, he was feeling good,” Ritvo said. “We just let him do it on his own. He worked great and came back super.”

Ritvo said she would like to continue to train Mucho Macho Man in Saratoga as long as the weather stays good.
