Free 'Macho Man' T-Shirts to First 2,000 Fans Who Purchase a Program
HALLANDALE BEACH, FL - Mucho Macho Man, the popular winner of the $5 million Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1), will be paraded Saturday, Nov. 9 at Gulfstream Park during the inaugural running of the $1 million Sunshine Millions Preview Day.
Mucho Macho Man will be brought to the saddling enclosure and walking ring with the horses entered in the $150,000 Classic Preview race at approximately 2:30 p.m. Fans will be able to take pictures of the Horse of the Year candidate while he circles the walking ring.
The first 2,000 fans who purchase a Gulfstream Park program will receive a free Mucho Macho Man t-shirt while supplies last.
Mucho Macho Man, born in 2008 in Florida, will appear on a day Gulfstream will highlight Florida-bred Thoroughbreds. The $1 million Sunshine Millions Preview Day will be restricted to Thoroughbreds born in Florida. Four of the races will highlight 2-year-olds and future stars of the sport.
Owned by Reeves Thoroughbred Racing and trained by Kathy Ritvo, Mucho Macho Man has become a fan favorite in part due to Ritvo, who has served as an inspiration to millions around the world after successfully undergoing a heart transplant in November 2008.
Third in the 2011 Kentucky Derby (G1), Mucho Macho Man has garnered a large fan base, including the Village People, who recorded the hit 'Macho Man,' and more than 7,500 Facebook followers.
