Virus knocks him out of Gulfstream Park Handicap
By J.J. Hysell
There will be no rematch between the top two finishers of the 2012 Breeders’ Cup Classic.
Mucho Macho Man, second to Fort Larned in that race, will miss the Gulfstream Park Handicap on March 9 due to a mild virus.
Fort Larned is being pointed to that race and remains on track for the one-mile test.
It’s the second setback this season for the son of Macho Uno. He was pulled up in his 2013 debut in the Sunshine Millions Classic, and trainer Kathy Ritvo attributed the performance to the sloppy track.
