Uncle Mo’s Success Continues at Keeneland November
Uncle Mo’s success at Fasig-Tipton on Sunday carried over to the Keeneland November Breeding Stock Sale when the stallion’s colt out of Sensitive sold to AAA Thoroughbreds for $575,000.
Offered by Gainesway, the colt is the second foal out of the stakes winning Sensitive. That mare is a half-sister to Grade I winner Sam’s Sister and out of a half-sister to the dams of Grade I winners Sweet Talker, Include Me Out, and Check The Label.
The colt was the third highest priced weanling of the session and was followed closely by a $450,000 colt purchased by Brookstone Farm.
Offered by Warrendale Sales, the colt is a half-brother to the multiple Grade III winner Secret Message among the three winners from three to race out of Westside Singer. This family also includes Grade II winner Keepmeinmind – by an Uncle Mo son – and Grade III winner Mellow Fellow.
During Wednesday’s Book 2 session, the colt was joined in the $450,000 club by the Fairview purchased Ladywearsthering.
A Grade III-placed daughter of Uncle Mo, Ladywearsthering is one of two stakes performers from two to race out of the multiple Grade III winner Southern Ring. That mare is a daughter of multiple stakes winner Seeking The Ring with the family including champions Catch The Ring and Catch The Thrill.
Wednesday’s session was another successful one for Uncle Mo when Claiborne Farm went to $400,000 for Uncle Mo daughter Stand Tall.
The stakes placed runner is a granddaughter of the great multiple Grade I winner My Flag. My Flag also proved to be just as prolific a broodmare as the dam of champion Storm Flag Flying among her four stakes performers alongside the stakes winning With Flying Colors.
Through nearly three sessions, Uncle Mo’s 20 sold are averaging $233,250 with a gross of $4,665,000.

Offered by ELiTE as agent, Lake Garda is a half-sister to dual Grade I winners Hoppertunity and Executiveprivilege. Their Grade II placed dam also produced stakes winners Lead of Men and Cowboy’s Hero. Lake Garda’s third dam is the Filly Triple Crown winner Davona Dale.
