Like most horse people and especially Thoroughbred fans, I will have my eyes glued to the TV this Saturday for the Kentucky Derby. If you haven’t picked a favorite, I’d like to draw your attention to Mucho Macho Man. His owners live in Georgia, just like me, and his trainer, Kathy Ritvo, is a woman. If Mucho Macho Man wins, she will be the first female trainer to win the Derby. She has one heck of a story. In 2008 she underwent a heart transplant and was out of the hospital and back to the barn in a mere seven days. She still takes a medicine cabinet full of pills every day, but she is doing well and doing what she loves. They say it takes heart to win the Derby, and this trainer has plenty!
