Macho Again to Haras Gran Derby

Grade I-winning son of Macho Uno will stand in Venezuela.

Grade I winner and millionaire Macho Again has been retired from racing and sold for stallion duty to Haras Gran Derby in Venezuela.

Campaigned by West Point Thoroughbreds (Terry Finley, president),  5-year-old Macho Again finished in the top two in a dozen of 24 races and earned $1,825,767. He won six of those races. The son of Macho Uno  finished unplaced in his last start, the June 12 Stephen Foster Handicap (gr. I) at Churchill Downs, a race he won in 2009.

Macho Again also won the 2009 New Orleans Handicap (gr. II) and the 2008 Jim Dandy Stakes (gr.  II) and the Derby Trial Stakes. He was beaten a head by subsequent Horse of the Year Rachel Alexandra in the 2009 Woodward Stakes (gr. I) and was second to subsequent champion 3-year-old male Big Brown  in the 2008 Preakness Stakes (gr. I).

Macho Again is a half brother to graded stakes winner Be Fair and is out of the winning Wild Again mare Go Donna Go.
