Macho Again entered in Lane's End(G2)
Seeking to live up to his name, Macho Again will look to show his strength around two-turns in the $500,000 Lane's End Stakes(G2) on Saturday at Turfway Park. Macho Again enters the Lane's End off a dominating allowance victory at the Fair Grounds in February.
Macho Again drew post two of twelve in the race. As expected, the race drew a full field, but most of the horses appear very evenly matched. Macho Again arrived at Turfway in excellent order, and he looks to be in the race with a big shot. The one unanswered question is how Macho Again will handle the added distance. He drew a favorable post position on the inside.
Trainer Dallas Stewart said, "He has trained well since his win, so we thought it was a good time to stretch him out again. He got a lot of fitness from the race, and he looks like a horse that can handle the added distance." Jockey Miguel Mena will be in the irons for the first time. Post time for the Lane's End is race 6:49, and the race is scheduled as the twelfth and final race of the day on Saturday.
