Uncle Mo

In 2010 Uncle Mo dominated the juvenile scene earning an Experimental Free Handicap weight of 128 - the highest since 1997. His impressive wins included the Champagne S. and Breeders’ Cup Juvenile. Although he missed the Triple Crown races due to illness, he was officially rated joint-second among the American 3yos on the World Thoroughbred Rankings. When he wired the field in the Gr.2 Kelso H., he earned the huge Beyer Figure of 118.

Uncle Mo is demonstrating similarly outstanding talent as a stallion with 15 of his progeny already winning at the top level, including three in 2023. Three of his stallion sons already have at least one Gr.1 winner to their credit.

Uncle Mo is successful with SEATTLE SLEW blood. Of his Gr.1 winners, Yaupon is out of a mare by VINDICATION, while Mo Donegal, Arabian Knight and Mo Town all have dams by sons of A.P. INDYPULPIT, ASTROLOGY and BERNARDINI respectively. BERNARDINI mares are also responsible for two Gr.2 winners. Uncle Mo also has Gr.2 and Gr.3 winners out of mares by A.P. INDY’s sons MALIBU MOON and MINESHAFT. TAPIT is broodmare sire of his 2023 Gr.2 winner Kingsbarns.

Uncle Mo owes more than 20 of his Graded winners to MR PROSPECTOR line mares. The GONE WEST branch provided him with Gr.1 winner Gomo and Gr.3 winner Lost Raven (both through ELUSIVE QUALITY) and Graded winners Laoban and Souper Hoity Toity (both through SPEIGHTSTOWN).

UNBRIDLED is broodmare sire of Gr.1 winner Unbridled Mo, while his sons EMPIRE MAKER, UNBRIDLED’S SONG and UNTUTTABLE are all broodmare sires of Uncle Mo’s Graded winners. Gr.1 winner Outwork has an EMPIRE MAKER dam, while Gr.1 winner A Mo Reay has a dam by PIONEEROF THE NILE. The very speedy Golden Pal has a dam by MIDSHIPMAN, a son of UNBRIDLED’S SONG.

Uncle Mo quickly proved himself with the STORM CAT line, siring the multiple Gr.1 winner Nyquist and the Gr.3 winner Auntie Joy from daughters of FORESTRY (also sire of the 2nd dam of Gr.1 winner Arabian Knight). STORM CAT, GIANT’S CAUSEWAY, BLUEGRASS CAT and TALE OF THE CAT are all broodmare sires of Uncle Mo’s Graded Stakes winners. There are also Graded Stakes winners out of mares by three sons of GIANT’S CAUSEWAY, including GIANT GIZMO (Gr.1 winner Adare Manor).

Uncle Mo already has four black-type winners that are inbred either 4x2 or 4x3 to DIXIELAND BAND, including the Gr.2 winner King Guillermo.

He also has black-type winners out of daughters of EL PRADO, KITTEN’S JOY and MEDAGLIA D’ORO.

WAR FRONT mares have produced Gr.2 winner Enola Gay and Gr.1-placed Caracaro with him.

Uncle Mo has black-type winners that are out of DEPUTY MINISTER, FRENCH DEPUTY and DEFRERE mares.

Uncle Mo is out of a mare by ARCH, a member of the HAIL TO REASON line, but that hasn’t stopped him siring the top 2yo Bast from another ARCH mare, creating 3x2 inbreeding. He also has Gr.3 winners from daughters of DYNAFORMER and SAINT BALLADO.
