$485,000 Filly Leads Uncle Mo Fasig-Tipton October Offerings

Uncle Mo was well-represented at the Fasig-Tipton Kentucky October Yearlings sale this week with a $485,000 filly leading the charge on the final day of the sale.

Purchased by Lauren Carlisle from Anderson Farms, the filly was the second highest priced offering of the final session and fifth highest of the sale.

The Ontario-bred daughter of stakes-placed Pearl Turn is a three-quarter sister to Canadian champion and Grade I winner Gretzky The Great, who is by Uncle Mo’s champion son Nyquist. The family also includes Grade I winner Love Theway Youare and Grade II winners Tower of Texas and Saint Anddan.

“First of all I am feeling relieved,” Carlisle told Thoroughbred Daily News after signing the ticket on the yearling. “I saw this filly on Sunday and I haven't stopped thinking about her since. She was my favorite filly. I haven't bid on any other horse besides her... I am pretty relieved and very happy. She's a lovely filly.”

Spendthrift Farm, BSW/Crow Colts Group, and Gandharvi went to $350,000 for the highest priced Uncle Mo colt of the sale from Wynnstay Sales.

Out of the stakes-placed Tactical Cat mare Adore You, the colt named Adore Him is a three-quarter brother to multiple stakes winner and Grade I Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf third Outadore and a half-brother to multiple stakes winner and multiple Grade I-placed Piedi Bianchi in addition to stakes winner Mind Reader.

In all, Uncle Mo had 14 yearlings sell during the four session-sale for an average over four-times the sale average.
