It's Official, Mucho Gusto is First Stakes Winner for Mucho Macho Man

Jumping from a maiden race to a graded stakes is difficult enough, but Michael Lund Petersen's Mucho Gusto didn't get any breaks in the $100,000 Bob Hope Stakes (G3), either.

The Bob Baffert-trained Mucho Macho Man colt got squeezed a bit at the start of the seven-furlong dirt test Nov. 17, set a quick pace, and was still able to repel a two-pronged challenge in the turn to win by 1 1/2 lengths.
