Yet again 50 year old Hall of Famer jockey Gary Stevens has made history, this time riding Mucho Macho Man to victory in the 2013 Breeders Cup Classic on Saturday at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, California. Mucho Macho Man is owned by Reeves Thoroughbred Racing and trained by Kathy Ritvo. Mucho Macho Man won the Cup Classic by a nose, running the 1 1/4 mile Grade I race in 2:00.72. The winner paid $10.00, $4.60 and $3.60. Inched out, Will Take Charge took second and returned $7.20 and $4.80. Declaration of War finished a close third and paid $4.80 to show.
This was also a tremendous victory for Kathy Ritvo who became the first female trainer to win the $5 million Breeders’ Cup Classic, the richest race in North America. Challenges and victory are not new to Ritvo, who continues to train winning thoroughbreds even after having undergone a heart transplant.
The Breeders’ Cup Classic victory earned Mucho Macho Man $2.75 million, a career total of over $5 million, his 8th win in 23 starts and strong contender for Horse of the Year and Eclipse Award honors.
Perhaps Gary Stevens is the true Mucho Macho Man. Only a day earlier, Stevens won the featured $2 million Breeders’ Cup Distaff aboard Beholder.

Earlier this year he won the Preakness. This is the 10th Cup win for the Hall of Fame jockey, an exceptional accomplishment for a jockey at any age, let alone at 50. Following the Breeders’ Cup win, Stevens acknowledged the victory at this point in his
career commenting, “This was a tremendous experience to win this race at my age.”
Truth be told, watching Gary Stevens compete and win is a tremendous experience for horseracing fans of all
