More G1 Success For Uncle Mo

Ashford Stud’s red hot resident stallion UNCLE MO, whose well-performed son ROYAL MO stands at Klawervlei Stud, was back in the news over the weekend when his brilliant daughter BAST captured the G1 Starlet Stakes at Los Alamitos.

In the process, Bast became the second Uncle Mo daughter in three years to win the prestigious Starlet Stakes with the sire’s DREAM TREE having triumphed in 2017.

Uncle Mo’s domination in the 2019 Starlet Stakes was complete, with the former US champion, and Breeders’ Cup-winning champion, responsible for not only the victorious BAST but also for runner up DONNA VELOCE.

In landing Saturday’s one mile and one-sixteenth feature, Bast made it G1 win number three, with the talented two-year-old having previously won both the G1 Del Mar Debutante and G1 Chandelier Stakes.

Saturday was a stellar day for Uncle Mo who was also responsible for two runaway juvenile maiden winners at Tampa Bay Downs on the day. Bast is Uncle Mo’s second Grade I winner in two weeks following Mo Forza’s victory in last week’s Grade I Hollywood Derby.

Uncle Mo’s high-class son ROYAL MO (pictured) was a top-class galloper in his own right, with his notable performances including a stirring win in the 2017 G3 Robert B. Lewis Stakes.
