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.

Thrilled is the sixth winner for former Champion 2YO Uncle Mo, who leads the US First Crop Sires List.
