Hallandale Beach, Fla. (January 3, 2015). Cross Sabres Farm’s
Bluegrass Singer overcame an awkward start to post an impressive
front-running victory in the $100,000 Mucho Macho Man Stakes at
Gulfstream, the first major stakes of the New Year for 3-year-olds.
After breaking eighth, Bluegrass Singer quickly recovered to take the lead, posting fractions of 23.10, 44.98 and 1:09.39. Despite the pressured pace,
he sprinted clear at the top of the stretch to score by 1 3/4 lengths in time
of 1:35.83 for the one-turn mile. It was the second victory in 17 days
for the Marcus Vitali trainee who has won three of four starts at Gulfstream.
Bluegrass Singer is the 23rd stakes winner sired by Bluegrass Cat, and
the fourth stakes winner from his sire’s fifth crop which produced 2-year-old
progeny earnings of $1,008,039 last year.
Bred by in Kentucky by Gaines-Gentry Thoroughbreds and Hardy Thoroughbreds, Bluegrass Singer is the second foal from the unraced Unbridled’s Song mare Aguilera
