Mo’s First Show

Jerry Bossert reports:

Uncle Mo is scheduled to return in the March 12 Tampa Bay Derby, but there is a chance the colt could debut at Gulfstream Park that day if a race is written for him.

“That’s a possibility should there be something at Gulfstream on March 12,” the trainer said.

Who would run against?


Perhaps more importantly, what happens if somebody were to beat him?

dutrow has ruined ” toscanova”. too much too soon.
same with “mo”.
i will bet “mo” is a no-show for the derby, any of them.
the cal. 3 y.o.’s suck.
this year will be the most wide open kentucky derby ever.

That’s the problem with coddled campaigns. A loss is never just a loss. Every start ends up weighted with too many expectations.

Not “coddled” in this case; he had a problem.

Right re: Boys. Not Mo, though?

I love the double standards in racing. Dutrow ruined Boys the same way Pletcher, Baffert, Lukas, etc. ruin their horses.

But when guys like Mandella and Matz lose horses to injury they’re just doing right by the horse.

War Pass lost the Tampa Bay Derby at 1-to-20. If Mo loses then so be it. His goal is the Kentucky Derby.
