2013 Breeders' Cup results: Mucho Macho Man wins Classic

Jeff Gross

Mucho Macho Man entered with 7/2 odds and won the 2013 Breeders' Cup Classic in a close finish.

Mucho Macho Man and jockey Gary Stevens won the 2013 Breeders' Cup Classic Saturday evening in California. Favorite Game on Dude started strong but fell back as the race wore on to finish ninth.

In a close race throughout, Mucho Macho Man barely beat out Will Take Charge, who came in with 12-1 odds. Declaration of War finished third with last year's winner, Fort Larned, coming in behind them.

Going in, Game on Dude was favored to win with 8/5 odds out of the ninth post. Mucho Macho Man was listed at 7/2 odds and Declaration of War at 6/1. Game on Dude, co-owned by former baseball manager Joe Torre, was also favored last year, but finished seventh in 2012.

For the first time ever, the trifecta from last year's classic  -- Fort Larned, Mucho Macho Man and Flat Out -- returned to race.
