West Hollywood | Coady Media

5th-Churchill Downs, $121,125, Msw, 5-10, 3yo/up, 1 1/8mT, 1:50.43, fm, 4 lengths.
WEST HOLLYWOOD (c, 3, Uncle Mo–White Hot {Ire}, by Galileo {Ire}) began his career in Roger Varian's yard where he debuted in fourth place over the Polytrack at Kempton Park in early January. Making the switch stateside to Brad Cox, the dark bay with Lasix was a 7-2 shot here. The 3-year-old broke quickly and settled in behind the pacesetter heading into the first turn. Raring to take on the frontrunner, the colt was let loose around the far turn and sported some strong turn of foot down the lane, despite bumping briefly with the leader. In the end, West Hollywood spurted away to win by lengths over Fort Thomas (War Front). The winner is a half-brother to Pizza Bianca (Fastnet Rock {Aus}), GISW-USA, GISP-Can, $792,947, who was purchased last fall at the Fasig-Tipton Mixed Sale for $3 million by John Stewart. Unraced White Hot is also responsible for 2-year-old colt Spanning Time (Not This Time) and she foaled a colt by Into Mischief Feb. 27. West Hollywood's extended female family includes French group stakes winner Ancient Rome (War Front). Sales History: $775,000 RNA Ylg '22 KEESEP. Lifetime Record: 2-1-0-0, $69,644.
