Professional, brilliant filial uncle Mo on the Saratoga grass field revealed

Mom (Uncle Mo-Discreet Moon {GB}, by Malibu Moon) showed off nuances of Goldikova-like talent on his debut here, flexing the muscles between the horses like a seasoned runner to kick in favor of conditioning Todd Pletcher and owner/breeder Wertheimer and Frere. Slightly pressed as the opponents charged, she watched contentedly from the far end of the field and only the other two defeated went into the first round. Saving land through it when the rangefinder brought up: 23.56 and: 48.35 fractions in the back, she cut the last corner and aimed for the leader. Separating them with ease, she kicks clearly and bests home with a wide open length despite a bit of undulation in the lane. Root Cause (Into Mischief) came in second.

“She really had a nice kickback for the home team. She didn’t dance well, which really worked in our favor… I liked the way she warmed up in the end,” Pletcher said after the race. “She practiced hard until we got to fifth out of eight, but bottomed out a little bit. She gave us a little bit of a turf impression when we put her on the pitch. It is clear that she has moved forward.”
