More Success for Uncle Mo’s Lost Raven

Lost Raven (Uncle Mo) winning the Smart Halo Stakes (L) at Laurel Park

A stakes-winner at Laurel last November, smart filly Lost Raven (3f Uncle Mo x Elusive Raven by Elusive Quality) has been working towards top form this year claiming another feature win in the $150,000 Grade III Adena Springs Miss Preakness Stakes at Pimlico.

A homebred for Repole Stable prepared by Todd Pletcher, Lost Raven got a long way back in the run, but unwound a powerful finish to score a three-quarter length win in the six furlong sprint.

“I was a little concerned because she’s never been that far back in her career,” Todd Pletcher said.

“I knew that :22 and change at Pimlico is flying, so I was hoping the fractions were fast enough to allow her to come from behind.”

With four wins from eight starts and prizemoney nearing $300,000, Lost Raven is the first winner for Elusive Raven, a half-sister to Grade II winner Lewis Bay and Grade III winners Misconnect and Winslow Homer.
