Stay Thirsty, Uncle Mo Work for Super Saturday

Trainer Todd Pletcher sent out both of his star Mike Repole-owned 3-year-olds for Sunday workouts as they prepare for their next assignments.

 

Uncle Mo, nosed out by Caleb’s Posse in the Grade 1 Foxwoods King’s Bishop, worked four furlongs in 48.36 at Saratoga Sunday morning in preparation for his next start on Super Saturday, October 1, at Belmont Park.

 

Last year’s 2-year-old champion will likely run in the Grade 2 Kelso at a mile, in which he could face Grade 1 Forego winner Jackson Bend and Jersey Town, winner of the Grade 1 Cigar Mile in 2010.

 

Stablemate Stay Thirsty, winner of the Grade 1 Travers, also worked Sunday morning at the Spa, covering a half-mile in 50.60 as he targets the Grade 1 Jockey Club Gold Cup at 1 ¼ miles, also on Super Saturday.

I may very well end up being completely off base with this assessment? But I get the feeling that Todd Pletcher is going talk Mike Repole into running Stay Thirsty in this year's B.C. Classic and Uncle Mo in this year's B.C. Dirt Mile. I think when all is said and done, Pletcher will convince Repole that with the long absence that befell Uncle Mo this year, he's just not going to be ready for a run at the Classic over 1-1/4? But from what we saw in the King's Bishop, looks like he could certainly run a big race in the Dirt Mile? I get the feeling, provided he stays healthy, that Mo's Classic shot is more likely to happen next year instead of this year? JMO.
