Trainer Todd Pletcher said all 11 of his Breeders’ Cup horses were fine the morning of Nov. 7.
Pletcher won three 2-year-old races, including the Grey Goose BC Juvenile (gr. I), a victory that makes unbeaten Uncle Mo
an early favorite for the Kentucky Derby (gr. I) and probably clinched
the Eclipse Award for 2-year-old male. Pletcher doubled his number of
victories in the Breeders’ Cup and earned $2,580,000 in purses to jump
from eighth- to third-place in the standings with $11,223,650.
“It feels good. We had a successful Breeders’ Cup,” Pletcher said in a
release. “You always wish you could have done better, I suppose, but
any time you win a Breeders’ Cup race you should be thankful and
grateful. To win three--they weren’t necessarily the three that we
wanted, if we could pick three-- was a good showing.”
