$400,000 Colt Continues Strong Sale for Uncle Mo
Uncle Mo continued his Keeneland September success on Friday when his colt out of Canadian champion Delightful Mary brought the third highest price of the day.
Sold for $400,000 to Donato Lanni for SF, Starlight, and Madaket, the Darby Dan-consigned colt was bred by John Oxley. Also Grade I-placed, Delightful Mary has one winner from one to race and is a half-sister to three other stakes horses led by Grade II winner and Grade I-placed Delightful Kiss.
This colt is one of three Uncle Mo yearlings Lanni has signed for on behalf of SF, Starlight, and Madaket at this sale, led by a $585,000 colt in Book 2.
Led by a $950,000 session topper on Wednesday, Uncle Mo has found success in all three books so far.
The leading sire by graded stakes winners on the track this year, Uncle Mo is second to only Into Mischief – with 14 less horses sold – by gross sales at Keeneland through the first five days.
