“We’re already back in Saratoga and everything’s great,” said Ritvo, who trains the colt for Dean and Patti Reeves. “He came out of it very good.”
The 4-year-old son of Macho Uno has won three out of four starts this year, notching victories in the Florida Sunshine Millions Classic and the Grade 2 Gulfstream Park Handicap in addition to the Suburban. He was third in the Grade 2 Alysheba Stakes at Churchill Downs on the May 4 Kentucky Derby undercard.
No plans have been made for the Florida-bred’s next start. He earned a preliminary Beyer Speed Figure of 108 for his 2 ½-length triumph in the Suburban under Hall of Famer Mike Smith.
