Pletcher Watching Uncle Mo Closely

The one-time heavy favorite for the Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (gr. I), Repole Stable’s Uncle Mo, was out for a gallop at Churchill Downs on Tuesday, April 19 in his first full day since arriving in Louisville.

Trainer Todd Pletcher was on hand at Churchill to watch Uncle Mo’s early morning gallop under exercise rider Hector Ramos. He also watched E. Paul Robsham Stables’ R Heat Lightning, the likely favorite for the Kentucky Oaks (gr. I), and Repole Stable’s other Kentucky Derby hope, Gotham (gr. III) winner Stay Thirsty, gallop over the one-mile oval.

Uncle Mo was on the track around 6:30 a.m. EDT and Pletcher indicated that would likely be the colt’s training schedule through the May 7 Kentucky Derby.

Ramos is also the regular exercise rider for R Heat Lightning, and Pletcher said the rider’s dual duties would likely mean that she would be on the track during Churchill Downs’ post-renovation break training session for Derby and Oaks contenders in the days leading up to those races.
