Expensive Uncle Mo Filly Takes Belmont Finale


Uncle Mo | Coolmore

9th-Belmont, $80,000, Msw, 7-7, 3yo/up, f/m, 6 1/2f, 1:16.98, ft.
LA CHANCLA (f, 3, Uncle Mo–Mama Tia, by Carson City) was given a rail-skimming ride by Jose Ortiz and closed the Belmont spring/summer meet on a high note for owner LNJ Foxwoods and Rodolphe Brisset with narrow victory. Sent off the 8-5 favorite off a useful fourth-place debut effort at Churchill May 30, the bay settled in about midfield as My Bronx Tail (Speightstown x ‘TDN Rising Star’ Winding Way) galloped along on an easy lead. The latter cut the corner into the stretch traveling apparently well, but La Chancla was pulled off the rail to deliver her challenge into the final eighth of a mile and she managed to grab the pacesetter in the shadow of the post. A half-sister to Cali Thirty Seven (Eskendereya), MSW, $271,060; Southern Honey (Colonel John), GSW, $223,017; and Shangroyal (Shanghai Bobby), MSP, $190,569, La Chancla–a May 17 foal–was a $200,000 Keeneland September yearling purchase who realized a nice profit when hammering for $775,000 at the 2018 OBS March Sale. Unraced Mama Tia is a half-sister to MGSW & MGISP Runway Model (Petionville), the dam of MGISW and ‘TDN Rising Star’ McKinzie (Street Sense). Mama Tia is the dam of a yearling colt by Candy Ride (Arg) and a filly foal by Street Sense. $200,000 Ylg ’17 KEESEP; $775,000 2yo ’18 OBSMAR. Lifetime Record: 2-1-0-0, $48,750.
