Uncle Mo headed the 2010 Experimental Free Handicap by a margin of 5lb. His Experimental weight of 128 – the highest allocated since 1997 – reflected the ease of his victories in the Gr.1 Champagne S. and Gr.1 BC Juvenile.
He missed the Triple Crown races due to illness but ended his sophomore season officially rated jt-second among the American 3yos on the World Thoroughbred Rankings. In the Gr.1 King’s Bishop S., he failed by only a nose to hold off the specialist sprinter Caleb’s Posse. He then wired the field in the Gr.2 Kelso H., earning a huge Beyer Figure of 118.
A decisive winner of the first-crop sires’ title, he has turned the second-crop sires’ championship into a one-horse race. With nine individual 3yo Graded winners before the end of September, including the Kentucky Derby winner Nyquist, he increased his total of first-crop Graded winners to 11, with 19 earning black type.
Uncle Mo is ideal for MR PROSPECTOR line mares. He owes eight of his Graded winners to mares from this male line.
The GONE WEST branch provided him with Gr.1 winner Gomo and Gr.3 winner Lost Raven (dams by ELUSIVE QUALITY) and the Gr.2 winner Laoban (dam by SPEIGHTSTOWN). UNBRIDLED is broodmare sire of Gr.3 winner Unbridled Mo, while EMPIRE MAKER and UNTUTTABLE are respectively the broodmare sires of Gr.1 winner Outwork and Gr.3 winner Uncle Vinny. RUBIANO supplied the dam of Gr.3 winner Mo Tom. Uncle Mo has a $750,000 third-crop yearling with a dam by VICTORY GALLOP.
Nyquist has a second dam by SEEKING THE GOLD and Uncle Mo also has a Gr.3 winner with a dam by FUSAICHI PEGASUS. His Gr.3 winner Uncle Vinny and the Listed winner Uncle Brennie from mares inbred 4×3 and 3×3 to Mr P.
Uncle Mo’s Gr.2 winner Mokat comes from another branch of the Raise A Native male line, his dam being a grand-daughter of EXCLUSIVE NATIVE.
Uncle Mo has quickly proved himself with the STORM CAT line, siring Nyquist and Auntie Joy from daughters of FORESTRY and Thrilled from a GIANT’S CAUSEWAY mare. He should also be ideal for daughters of TALE OF THE CAT (broodmare sire of his $725,000 2016 yearling) and HENNESSY (broodmare sire of his $650,000 2016 yearling). Uncle Mo has made a fast start with SCAT DADDY mares, siring the Gr.2-placed Mo d’Amour.
Uncle Mo is already making an impact with SEATTLE SLEW blood. His Gr.1 winner Gomo has a second dam by CAPOTE, his Gr.2-placed son Shaken has a dam by SEATTLE SLEW and his Listed winner Uncle Brennie has a dam by MALIBU MOON, a son of A.P. INDY.
Uncle Mo already has a black-type winner inbred 4×3 to DIXIELAND BAND.
