Multiple stakes-winning King for a Day (Uncle Mo–Ubetwereven, by French Deputy) will begin his stud career in 2021 under the management of Irish Hill & Dutchess Views Stallions LLC in Saratoga, New York. He will stand for $6,000 Live Foal Stand and Nurse.
Bred and raced by Stephen P. Brunetti's Red Oak Stable, King for a Day won last year's Sir Barton S. and defeated champion Maximum Security (New Year's Day) to win the Pegasus S. at Monmouth Park. He was a narrowly beaten second while concluding his racing career in the GIII Challenger S. at Tampa Bay Downs in March. On the board in five of seven starts, he retires with three wins and earnings of $260,550.
“King for a Day displayed big talent from day one. He not only strongly resembles his sire Uncle Mo, but he had a great mind to go with the talent,” said Todd Pletcher, who trained both sire and son. “King had a high cruising speed just like his sire….”
Brunetti is expected to remain actively involved in the 4-year-old's stallion career.
