GENARO MACIAS NAMED AUGUST FHBPA ‘GROOM OF THE MONTH’

Genaro Macias grew up in Michoacán, Mexico. Even as a boy, Macias would groom working horses to hone his skills. His brothers worked with thoroughbreds in the United States and would send Macias grooming supplies to help him practice.

In 2004, Macias was able to obtain a United States Visa to come work as a groom in South Florida. For the last 12 years, Macias has been working under trainer Henry Collazo. His hard work paid off in January of 2013 when Macias’ all-time favorite horse, “Mucho Mas Macho”, won a Grade 2 stakes race at Gulfstream.

His favorite horses now are “Whataclassyladdy” and “Sweetontheladies”.
