Uncle Mo Defeated In Wood Memorial Kentucky Derby Wide Open
Uncle Mo Is Defeated In Wood Memorial
Aqueduct was a buzz Saturday when Uncle Mo was beaten by Toby’s Corner. Graham Motion was hesitant to enter the lightly raced colt but after Uncle Mo flattened out in the stretch Toby’s Corner looks to be one of the favorites with Dialed In. This is probably one of the biggest upsets in Wood Memorial History. Trainer Todd Pletcher could’nt believe his eyes, this is as big of a loss that I’ve ever had. A prep for the Kentucky Derby many of these horses start to come into their own around this time of year, the 2 year old champ just did’nt fire down the stretch. John Velasquez gave him a good trip but he just did’nt have the normal zip coming down the lane. Now the derby is completely wide open and trainers feel now that they have a legitimate chance to beat Uncle Mo. Eddie Castro got into throuble all race long having to maneuver Toby’s Corner all over the track and after Arthurs Tale bumped him releatedly in the stretch. Pletcher will ship Uncle Mo to Churchill Downs so he can get a few training miles under his belt though his entry to the derby is now questionable. Mike Reople owner of Uncle Mo said this is horse racing anything is possible, I have over 100 friends here and all are disappointed beyond belief. Dialed In is now one of the favorites with his come from behind running style it will suit him fine in the run for the roses. Nick Zito said after the Florida Derby that his horse was really tired after the race but looked to give him a few days off before getting him jogging again.Can Uncle Mo go the distance or is he a sprinter? That being said this crop of 3 year olds are not that good. The triple crown is up for grabs this year said Mike Veitch the writer for the Saratogian. If I was to pick a horse now I would’nt know who to go with. If it rains you could see another long shot winning. The trip is everything with the inside being NOT the place to be, so the draw is everything.
Uncle Mo No Longer The Horse To Beat
Dialed in’s running style can get him out of trouble no matter where is is on the track, his come from behind abilities wil help him even if he draws inside. Same goes for Toby’s Corner he has the same running style and if the pace sets up for a closer these two ccould tbe one two down the lane. The best two minutes in sports the Kentucky Derby is now shaping up to be a solid race. Uncle Mo did not look sharp he actually looked tired, maybe Pletcher is over tarining him? This is one of the Wood’s biggest losses since Secretariat. You can look at it a number of different ways but how good is Toby’s Corner? This lightly raced colt just beat one of the best 3 yearolds ever some are calling? Race Horse Watchdog has this Kentucky derby pegged by saying before the race that Mo is not the real deal. From the economy being so bad and sires demanding such high stud prices people are leaning towards sires that are on the cheaper side with second hand breeding hoping to get lucky and that is exactly how this crop stacks up. Dialed In is a smaller horse with smart know how, meaning he switches leads automatically when he gets tired helping him pass others to the finish line Uncle Mo does not have this ability. Johnny V knows this and will be trying to help him learn this at Churchill. The Race Horse Watchdog is a blog with some of the best non paid writers in the business of thoroughbred racing. This will be one of those years where you just never know who will win the Kentucky Derby?
