Envoutante Newest Stakes Winner for Uncle Mo
The second graded stakes winner in 30 minutes for Uncle Mo on Sunday, Grade I-placed Envoutante (3f Uncle Mo x Enchante, by Bluegrass Cat) earned her first stakes victory in the Grade III Remington Park Oaks.
Racing over 1 1/16 miles on the Remington Park dirt track, Envoutante was happy to run in midpack a few paths wide for much of the race. Ridden patiently, Envoutante slowly moved up as they entered the final half mile before being sent after the leader around the far turn. Envoutante had to race down the front runner in the stretch but in the final sixteenth all she had to worry about was how far she was going to win by.
It was an easy 3¼ length victory for the Ken McPeek trainee, who was registering her third career victory and sixth top three finish in eight starts. A $250,000 yearling purchase, the filly is raced in partnership by Walking L Thoroughbreds and Three Chimneys Farm and was bred by Jumping Jack Racing.
The second foal out of multiple stakes placed Enchante, Envoutante comes from the family of multiple Grade I winner and champion sire Forty Niner and Grade II winner Sobre Action among others. Her dam also has a Classic Empire yearling colt who sold at the recent Keeneland September Sale.
A top racehorse and sire, Uncle Mo leads all North American sires by graded stakes winners in 2020 with 13 and sits second by among of stakes horses and graded stakes winners.
