2011 Daytona Stakes (G3) [02:12]
ARCADIA, Calif. -- Mike Machowsky, the trainer of Caracortado, had given up on his horse. So too had track announcer Trevor Denman, who said Caracortado was not firing. But neither jockey Rafael Bejarano nor, most importantly, Caracortado, thought all was lost, and he displayed a breathtaking, last-to-first rush in the stretch to capture the Grade 3, $98000 Daytona Stakes on Sunday at Santa Anita. Caracortado ($5.80), who was officially 13 lengths back a half-mile into the downhill turf sprint, and more than six lengths back with a furlong to go, roared past his three rivals to win by 1 1/4 lengths over Victory Pete. Mr. Gruff and Regally Ready, the Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint winner, finished in a dead heat for third, another half-length back, after a vicious early speed duel that left both sapped in the final furlong. Caracortado was timed in 1:11.59 for about 6 1/2 furlongs on firm turf. "I was watching the race on television at the clubhouse bar with my family and my father, and at the quarter pole I started to walk out," Machowsky said.

Mucho Macho Man - Aqueduct Allowance [01:56]
Graded stakes winner Mucho Macho Man, making his first start since finishing seventh in the Grade 1 Belmont Stakes in June, used front-running tactics to capture his comeback race, a $55000 allowance/optional claiming event on Wednesday at Aqueduct Racetrack. Mucho Macho Man was quickest from the gate and led through fractions of 23.32 and 46.32 while receiving pressure from Southern Ridge. Ramon Dominguez gave Mucho Macho Man more rein on the far turn, and the 3-year-old son of Macho Uno steadily increased his advantage to the wire, defeating runner-up Gallant Fields by 5 ¾ lengths. Off as the 7-5 favorite, Mucho Macho Man paid $4.90 and completed one mile in 1:34.72.
