ARCADIA, Calif. (AP) -- Mucho Macho Man won the $5 million Classic by a nose a year after finishing second in the Breeders' Cup race.

Ridden by Gary Stevens, Mucho Macho Man ran 1 1/4 miles in 2:00.72 and paid $10, $4.60 and $3.60 on Saturday at Santa Anita.

Kathy Ritvo became the first female trainer to win North America's richest race. The 50-year-old Stevens closed out his comeback year that began in January with a sweep of the two biggest races at the two-day world championships. He won the $2 million Distaff with Beholder on Friday.

Will Take Charge returned $7.20 and $4.80, while Declaration of War was another head back in third and paid $4.80 to show.

Game On Dude, the 8-5 favorite, finished ninth on his home track. Fort Larned failed to defend the title he won last year.

Palace Malice, from Dogwood Stable in Aiken finished sixth.
