Uncle Mo, last year’s 2-year-old champion to return to Pletcher next week

Belmont Park: Uncle Mo to return to Pletcher next week
By David Grening

ELMONT, N.Y. – Uncle Mo, last year’s 2-year-old champion who missed the Kentucky Derby because of a rare liver disease, has recently started galloping and is expected to ship to Saratoga next Monday, according to trainer Todd Pletcher.

Uncle Mo has been based at WinStar Farm in Kentucky since May 9 and started jogging on June 24.

“Excellent so far,” Pletcher said when asked how Uncle Mo was doing.

Pletcher wouldn’t say Uncle Mo was ahead of schedule, because “we didn’t really have a schedule.”

Mike Repole, the owner of Uncle Mo, has previously stated a dream scenario under which Uncle Mo could make the Grade 1 King’s Bishop at Saratoga on Aug. 27, but it remains to be seen if there is enough time to get the sufficient preparation into the colt to make a race of that stature.
