Adena Springs announced that they have purchased an interest in GI Breeders’ Cup Classic hero Mucho Macho Man
(Macho Uno), owned by Dean and Patti Reeves. The agreement, effective immediately, is for both racing and breeding purposes. Mucho Macho Man is by Adena Springs homebred champion Macho Uno and upon retirement will join a roster that now include five Breeders’ Cup winners.
“It’s a homecoming of sorts," Adena Spring’s Frank Stronach stated. "Our program bred Ponche De
Leona to Macho Uno, before selling her with Mucho Macho Man in utero. Mucho Macho Man is not only a beautiful animal, but an incredible runner, who has already won or placed in 16 major stakes races, including the [GI] Kentucky Derby and two [GI] Breeders' Cup Classics. There are not many stallion prospects anywhere in the world that can hold their top form from two through six like he has. I look forward to his races this year, and subsequent retirement to Adena Springs.”
Mucho Macho Man will continue to run in the Reeves Thoroughbred Racing colors and Kathy Ritvo will remain his conditioner.
“Patti and I are happy that we reached the agreement with Frank. Mr. Stronach has a great organization that will give Mucho Macho Man every chance to succeed as a stallion. But first and foremost we look forward to
Mucho Macho Man starting in the upcoming GI Santa Anita H. on Mar. 8, and his 2014 campaign in defense of his Breeders’ Cup Classic win.”
