Uncle Mo | Sarah Andrew

2nd-Fair Grounds, $55,000, Msw, 12-23, 2yo, 1 1/16m, 1:44.98, ft, 5 1/4 lengths.
ETHAN ENERGY (c, 2, Uncle Mo–Sass and Class, by Harlan's Holiday), a well-beaten sixth on debut sprinting at Keeneland Oct. 22, took a major step forward stretching to two turns at second asking here. Removing blinkers and adding Lasix for this, the 2-1 chance chased in fifth rounding the clubhouse turn. Racing under a tight hold by Florent Geroux, he began to settle down the backstretch in that same slot, made a flashy four-wide blitz approaching the quarter pole and leveled off nicely down the lane to win by 5 1/4 lengths over El Magnifico (Street Sense). Sass and Class, also responsible for Royal Charlotte (Cairo Prince), MGSW, $408,150; had a colt by Authentic in 2022 and a colt by Curlin in 2023. She was bred back to Uncle Mo for 2024. Sass and Class brought $350,000 from Stonestreet carrying Ethan Energy at the 2020 KEENOV sale. Lifetime Record: 2-1-0-0, $34,250. Click for the Equibase.com chart or VIDEO, sponsored by FanDuel TV.
