Debut Saratoga Winner for Uncle Mo
There’s no stopping exciting young sire Uncle Mo, who posted another debut winner at Saratoga on Sunday with a thrilling last stride victory for aptly named Thrilled (2f Uncle Mo x Excited, by Giant’s Causeway). A homebred for Michael Tabor trained by Todd Pletcher, Thrilled settled midfield and finished with a determined bid to snatch a nose win in the 1 and 1/16th mile contest on turf. Thrilled is the first winner for Grade III winning Giant’s Causeway mare Excited, whose stakes-winning dam Path of Thunder is a full sister to Grade I Breeders Cup Distaff winner Spain. Excited has been a regular visitor to Ashford Stud stallions and produced a colt by Shanghai Bobby earlier this year and was subsequently covered by Verrazano.
