More Than Good was more than prepared for his stakes debut on short rest Monday night, leading the field home in the $100,000 Karl Boyes Memorial Stakes at Presque Isle Downs. The 5-year-old is the latest Stakes winner for the Adena Springs stallion Macho Uno, who's earned a strong reputation as a sire of talented, tough and durable runners.

Watch the Karl Boyes Memorial Stakes

Grade 3 winner Wellabled, sent off as the heavy favorite in the Boyes Memorial, rushed out to lead by a length and a half through the opening quarter in 22.25 seconds. Oldies But Goodies sat second, on near-even terms with More Than Good and jockey Fernando Salazar Becerra. The field began to close in on Wellabled around the turn. Wellabled kept his head in front into the lane, but More Than Good rushed up to be second, with Shekky Shebaz a threat on his hip.

Wellabled drifted out at the eighth pole as he began to tire badly late, with More Than Good, still full of run, assuming the lead. The gelding continued to draw off to win by 2 1/4 lengths, stopping the clock in 1:03.17 for the 5 1/2 furlongs on the all-weather track.
Less Than Perfect, the longest shot on the board, closed from sixth in the field of seven, and from widest of all, to be second by 1 3/4 lengths. Caloric, who was forced to check in the lane as Wellabled tired, was up to be third by a head over Shekky Shebaz. Then came Oldies But Goodies, Wellabled, and second choice Lanier, also a graded stakes winner.

Macho Uno, an Eclipse Champion Juvenile in his racing days, is the sire of several other tough, talented & durable runners, including Private Zone & Mucho Macho Man (Breeders' Cup Classic) who scored multiple Grade 1 victories after their 4-year-old seasons.

Mucho Gusto On to Haskell Inv. (G1) After Securing 4th Graded Victory

Although the distance may have been a concern to some beforehand, Bob Baffert's speedy Mucho Gusto......

Although the distance may have been a concern to some beforehand, Bob Baffert's speedy Mucho Gusto settled nicely off the pace and took charge around the far turn en route to an impressive 2 ¼ length win over Santa Anita Derby winner Roadster in the $100,000 Affirmed Stakes (G3) at Santa Anita.

Ridden by Joe Talamo, Mucho Gusto, a 3-year-old colt by Mucho Macho Man, got a mile and one sixteenth with aplomb in 1:45.15.

Owned by Michael Lund Petersen, Mucho Gusto now has four graded stakes wins to his credit and an overall mark of 7-5-1-1. With the winner's share of $60,000, he now has earnings of $430,800.



Attentive to the pace from the outset, Mucho Gusto, fresh off a 3 ¼ length score in the Lazaro Barrera Stakes (G3) going seven furlongs on May 18, sat a joint third with Roadster heading to the far turn, but when Talamo stepped on the gas at the 3 ½ furlong pole, he quickly reeled in early pacesetters Visitant and Kingly while leaving Roadster in his wake and was in-hand at the wire.

“With the right trip, I don't think this colt has any distance limitations,” said Talamo, who's ridden Mucho Gusto in all seven of his starts, including a disappointing third two starts back in the Sunland Derby (G3) at 1 1/8 miles on March 24.

“He finally drew outside today, so we were able to kind of sit outside. He can go to the lead or sit second or third. As long as he settles, he'll finish.”

“That race at Sunland set him back a little,” said Baffert. “They went so fast. There's some derbies around, but I think he'll probably go to the Haskell (Invitational, Grade I, 1 1/8 miles July 20 at Monmouth Park). As long as he relaxes, he'll run that far…I think 'Mucho' has really improved.”

Ridden by Mike Smith, Roadster, who subsequent to his Santa Anita Derby win, was beaten 16 ½ lengths in the Kentucky Derby May 4, was off at even money and paid $2.40 and $2.10 while finishing one length in front of Alcatraz Stakes winner Visitant (by Ghostzapper).

Earlier on the card Mucho Macho Man's California Cup Oaks winner Mucho Unusual scored an impressive Allowance victory to up her career earnings to over $250,000. Back east at Gulfstream Park, Stronach Stables homebred Mucho Macho Man son romped in his second start by 11 1/2 lengths.
