Mucho Amor wins at first asking at Keeneland under Joel Rosario for trainer Wesley Ward

Adena Springs' Breeders' Cup Classic (G1) winner Mucho Macho Man was represented by his first winner with his first-ever starter April 26 at Keeneland when 2-year-old filly Mucho Amor won a 4 1/2-furlong maiden special weight race under Joel Rosario at Keeneland.

Trained by Wesley Ward for Ten Broeck Farm, Mucho Amor went right to the lead out of the gate and was up as much as two lengths at the midway point. Challenged in deep stretch, the filly dug in gamely to win by a neck in :52 seconds flat over a fast track.

Bred by Ed Few in Kentucky, Mucho Amor is the first foal out of the stakes-placed Rock Hard Ten mare Raucous Lady, whose siblings include stakes winners Vegas Flyer and Charming Ruckus. Mucho Amor was a $260,000 buy at the March OBS 2-year-old sale last month.

Mucho Macho Man was one of the most durable and consistent horses of the past decade. He won or placed in 16 stakes from age 2 through 6, winning the Breeders' Cup and Awesome Again S. (G1) at five, the Suburban H. (G1) and Gulfstream Park H. (G2) at four, and placing in the Kentucky Derby (G1). He retired to Adena Springs with earnings of $5,625,410.

Mucho Macho Man currently stands for a fee of $10,000 live foal. For more information, contact Ben Walden at 859-987-1684 or visit
