Uncle Mo Head Shot

Uncle Mo Strikes With $700,000 Book 2 Colt

A three-quarter brother to Grade I winner Mo Town was popular with buyers on Thursday when Mayberry Farm won the bidding war at $700,000 for an Uncle Mo colt out of Scusami.

Offered by Mo Town’s breeder Glennwood Farm, the colt is the first out of Mo Town’s half-sister Scusami. It was another big price for the family by a Coolmore stallion after Mo Town’s Justify half-sister brought $725,000 on the second day of selling.

Scusami is granddaughter of Grade III winner and Grade I-placed Molto Vita, who produced stakes winners Jaguar Paw and Venetian Mask in addition to stakes-placed Panthera. Molto Vita in turn is out of Grade III winner Princess Polonia, who also produced Grade III-placed Mazuka.

Molto Vita has an Uncle Mo colt to come later in the sale as Hip 1579 during Saturday’s session

Uncle Mo yearlings on Thursday sold for $700,000, $350,000, $300,000 with his 33 sold during the first two books led by a $1.1 million filly with an average of $349,303 and median of $300,000.
