HRH Prince Faisal Bin Khaled, Mucho Gusto is one of the quartet of graded stakes winners featured on the catalog’s back cover.

It was the fifth graded stakes win for the 4-year-old colt by Mucho Macho Man, trained by Bob Baffert, now 11-6-2-2 and the newest OBS millionaire with $2,441,800 in earnings. He was consigned by Kirkwood Stables, Agent, to the 2018 OBS March Sale, where he went through the ring after breezing an Under Tack eighth in :10 flat. watch his under tack video
