Uncle Mo Head Shot

$250,000 Uncle Mo Colt at Keeneland January

The 2016 Keeneland January Horse of All Ages Sale produced a good result for Champion 2YO and First Crop Sire Uncle Mo with a colt from It’s Spooky topping the short yearlings on Tuesday.

Consigned by Warrendale Sales, the colt made $250,000 to the bid of bloodstock agent Steve Young.

“I couldn’t be a bigger fan of Uncle Mo right now,” Young said.

“This horse is a super individual and I hope he is brave and lucky. He is a super nice baby by a very hot sire.

“He’s been bought by a man who races and I’d imagine that’s what we’ll do.”

The colt is a half-brother to Grade III winner Rerun from stakes-placed It’s Spooky.
