Reeves Thoroughbred Racing and Dream Team One Racing Stable’s Mucho Macho Man   will have a new rider in the June 11 Belmont Stakes (gr. I). Ramon Dominguez will be aboard the 3-year-old son of Macho Uno  , the jockey’s agent, Steve Rushing, told Daily Racing Form June 1.

Dominguez was 2010’s Eclipse Award-winning jockey.

Rajiv Maragh rode Mucho Macho Man in the colt’s most recent four races. With Maragh in the irons, Mucho Macho Man captured the Risen Star Stakes (gr. II), finished third in the Louisiana Derby (gr. II) and Kentucky Derby Presented By Yum! Brands (gr. I), and was sixth in the Preakness Stakes (gr. I).

Trained by Kathy Ritvo, Mucho Macho Man has won two of his 10 career races while earning $610,643. John and Carole Rio bred the colt in Florida.
