The answers should be clearer after the Breeders’ Cup, but the
evidence heading into November is that New York has the better
2-year-old males and California the better 2-year-old fillies.
They were both stabled at Saratoga this summer and train these days
at different New York tracks, but there is little question that all the
attention will be on Uncle Mo (stabled at Belmont Park) and Boys At Tosconova (Aqueduct) heading into the Grey Goose Breeders’ Cup Juvenile (G1) at Churchill Downs.
Boys At Tosconova was already in the clubhouse with his dominating
win in the Hopeful Stakes (G1) at Saratoga. Uncle Mo needed to do his
part in the Champagne Stakes (G1) at Belmont. The son of Indian Charlie
did even more than expected, if that is possible.
