A son of Macho Uno bred in Florida by Milan Kosanovich out of the Wild Again mare Go Donna Go, Macho Again was second to Big Brown in the Preakness Stakes (gr. I), beaten 5 1/4 lengths after a troubled trip. Prior to that start, he won the 7 1/2-furlong Derby Trial at Churchill Downs April 26. He was a $150,000 purchase from the OBS select sale of 2-year-olds in training in 2007.
