Signal Hill Farms’ Mucho Mas Macho had just one horse beaten in the early going of Saturday’s $150,000 Ft. Lauderdale Stakes (G2) at Gulfstream, but the 4-year-old colt by Macho Uno came running late on the outside and got up in the final yards to win his first graded stakes race by a neck. The 2011 OBS March graduate, sold by Secure Investments for $19,000, is now 20-5-4-0 with earnings of $227,951.  watch his under tack video
