uncle Mo is sorta Seattle Slew-like, if he wins the wood like Slew, look for Duca or Arthur's Tale to complete the exacta
So how many lengths does Uncle Mo win by on Saturday???

  • dubby30 · TopTurf you seem very confused or you don’t play the semantics game very well. In your post – and I wont dwell on this for very long- you state, u’ve never seen him rate, your quote “4 races total” that would be all 4 races hes run in correct, then you say later that the BC was a very nice win, well that BC was 1 of those 4 races total that you mentioned where he never rated. Seems like you are confused, second, maybe you need to do some research and get an understanding of what the word rate means. Rating does not always refer to a horse having to be behind a wall of horses or settling off a horse, rating is also acknowledged as the horse relaxing and settling kindly for the jockey, which Mo did in the TW, I know it wasn’t a race I wanted to see him in, but if anyone wanted to go with him or push the pace to a :23 and :46 for the half they could have. Last, sometimes horses are good enough to get a good trip, especially when running against a less than stellar bunch, not the horses fault, just the fault of the breeders, who are breeding sprinters. Just food for thought, hey if you keep spouting nonsense you will continue to be held accountable for it. · 1645 days ago
By a nose !
My play,#5-Uncle Mo 1st,with #4-Arthur's Tale,#7-Duca,#8-Norman Asbjornson,#9-Isn't He Perfect $12 Tri.
Oh Uncle Mo is having a workout this weekend and getting paid for it!!!! NICE!!!!!
The field for the Wood is awful if Mo doesnt win.He shouldnt be an Derby 2nd or 3rd would not do.Hope He wins by 20 and goes in as the Derby fav so i can hit a big ticket when he doesnt hit the board
Another easy race for Uncle Mo, I think u have to race against stronger to find out what u have.
Gotta be uncle Mo this weekend in the Wood Memorial
The field really isn't coming up all that weak, it's second tier horses to be sure, with the exception of Uncle Mo and Jaycito (possibly Toby’s Corner) but nothing to sneeze at. It is at least a big step up in class from the Timely Writer, but nothing Mo shouldn't be able to handle with ease once again.
Mo sure is getting a ton of attention. I hope he makes it all the way!! It sure would help our industry!!
After the Florida Derby, Wood Memorial and Santa Anita Derby we will have a clear idea of which contenders can go a mile and a quarter in decent time. Let's compare those 1 1/8 times on Sunday night after the big weekend wraps! Looking forward to reading everyone's opinions after the big weekend! My pix for the record are, da da da dah, Mo, Dialed and Peg! Good luck to everyone!
I am looking for a time of around 1:48 to sway me for Uncle Mo. I think Baffert is going to try to rate Jaycito and try him as a stalker rather than a dead closer. It will be very interesting to watch. I think Jaycito can take Mo if he can match daddy Victory Gallop's luck!
