Mucho Macho Man's Mongolian Wind Preakness-Bound After Manitoba Derby Score

Andrew Stronach’s three-year-old bay gelding, Mongolian Wind, ran a terrific race late Monday...

Mongolian Stables and Andrew Stronach’s three-year-old bay gelding, Mongolian Wind, ran a terrific race late Monday to capture the 72nd annual Manitoba Derby.

But the victory at Assiniboia Downs is just a precursor to a major outing in the fall. The Kentucky-bred son of Mucho Macho Man is expected to run the 2020 Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Race Course in Maryland in early October.

"I want him to run him in the Preakness and I wanted to give him one more race. It’s good for us, it’s good for Manitoba, it’s good for everybody," said the Ontario-based owner. "My family owns the (Preakness) track and we want to support it. He’s just learning how to run."

Mongolian Wind, somehow carrying just 7-1 odds in the feature race with a rare 10:35 p.m. post time, with jockey Wilmer Galviz aboard, engaged the leader, Mr. Unusual, midway through the mile-and-one-eighth race and burst ahead for the stretch run.
He held off Mr. Unusual, while pre-race favourite Something Natural finished third.

"The whole bumping thing, the horse seems to get more aggressive. He’s a fighter. He didn’t want to let that other horse by him (down the stretch)," said Stronach. "He likely couldn’t see him because he had blinkers on but he could maybe hear him. He showed heart. He’s got heart."

Mucho Macho Man is the North American's leading Third Crop Sire and #1 overall sire by 2020 average earnings/starter. He's also Kentucky's #1 Third Crop Sire by blacktype winners/starters.

Like his sire Macho Uno, Breeders’ Cup Classic winner Mucho Macho Man is working with a wide array of modern pedigree influences.

Two of Mucho Macho Man’s early blacktype horses are out of mares by the Storm Cat son Giant’s Causeway - G1W Mucho Gusto and SW/G2SP Belle Laura.

Macho Uno’s success with Storm Cat includes GSW/millionaire Danon Legend and SW Revenant One out of Storm Cat daughters, SW Hy Riverside (2nd dam by the Storm Cat son Hennessy) and SW Done Deal, out of a mare by Tale of the Cat.

Roberto is Giant's Causeway's second damsire and we find this influence in 70% of the early Mucho Macho Man blacktype horses. Two others are through Kris S. with another showing Silver Hawk.

Mucho Macho Man’s G1W Mucho Unusual is out of a mare by another Northern Dancer-line stallion Unusual Heat, a son of Nureyev. We also find Nureyev in the pedigree of Classic-placed He's a Macho Man.

Mucho Macho Man’s damsire Ponche is out of a mare by Nijinsky II, a close relative of Storm Cat’s sire Storm Bird. Reinforcing Nijinsky II is proving beneficial as Mucho Gusto and SW Mucho Amor are out of mares carrying that influence. The Fappiano grandson Broken Vow (by Unbridled) is out of a mare by Nijinsky II, who’s also found in the pedigree of the dams of Malibu Moon, Tapit and Rubiano (by Fappiano), damsire of War Front (by Danzig).

Danzig is another promising Northern Dancer-line target as three of Mucho Macho Man's stakes runners so far are out of mares carrying Danzig - SW City Man (Belong to Me), SW Mucho Amor (War Chant) and SW/G2SP Belle Laura (Dayjur). This is a continuation of the success Macho Uno has had with Danzig - G1W Wicked Style, G2W Potesta, etc.

A good deal of Macho Uno’s blacktype runners are out of mares carrying Mr. Prospector and so far around 80% of Mucho Macho Man's blacktype horses are too. 

Unbeaten 2-year-old SW City Man is out of a mare by the Carson City son City Zip. Classic-placed He’s a Macho Man is out of a mare by Lemon Drop Kid, a son of Kingmambo (dam by Nureyev). We find Mr. Prospector in the 2nd damlines of Mucho Gusto (Seeking the Gold) and SW/G2SP Belle Laura (Mr. Greeley, by Gone West). 

Considering Macho Uno’s success, mares carrying Forty Niner, especially through his son Distorted Humor, are also interesting for Mucho Macho Man. Macho Uno has sired two SWs from a small group of starters out of mares by Distorted Humor (dam by Danzig).

Mucho Macho Man’s dam has produced two good ones by Tapit - SW Southern Girl and $2 million yearling/G2W Marconi - making his daughters and granddaughters intriguing. Seattle Slew-influenced mares are promising overall as G1SW Mucho Unusual’s 2nd dam is by the Slew son General Meeting and is inbred tail-male to Bold Ruler. SW/G2SP Belle Laura and SW Mucho Amor are also out of mares showing a Bold Ruler double (within 6 generations). All of Mucho Macho Man's early blacktype runners are out of dams showing at least one strain of Bold Ruler.

Mares showing the Fappiano influence hold high promise for Mucho Macho Man. Fappiano’s damsire, Dr. Fager, is a half-brother to Ta Wee, dam of Mucho Macho Man’s great grandsire Great Above. Reinforcing their dam, Aspidistra, has been successful over the past few decades in American pedigrees and for Macho Uno in particular - Classic winner Harlem Rocker, G2W Mucho Mas Macho and SW/Sovereign Award finalist Decision Day (dam by Unbridled's Song), etc.

The Macho Uno/Wild Again cross has yielded G1W Macho Again and G3W Silsita from a handful of starters.

Given that Macho Uno is a half-brother to Awesome Again (by Deputy Minister) it would be prudent to consider Vice Regent/Deputy Minister-influenced mares. Vice Regent appears in a total of 15 stakes horses by Macho Uno, including G1W winner Private Zone and MG3W/G1SP Tommy Macho.
