Uncle Mo Colt Debuts In Style in Turfway Prevue S.

Scoobie Quando becomes a stakes winner at first asking | Coady

The word was out on Scoobie Quando (Uncle Mo), the lone first-time starter in Saturday's Turfway Prevue S., and the bay proved equal to task to open his account in the best imaginable fashion.

Away in good order from the outside gate, the $160,000 Keeneland September acquisition raced three deep in the second flight of horses down the backstretch as fellow maiden Retained (Bayern) made the running in advance of GIII Nashua S. third Prove Right (Justify). Warming up to the task while still three wide at the head of the lane, Scoobie Quando dueled heads apart into the final sixteenth of a mile and fought his way home to score narrowly.

Scoobie Quando was purchased in utero for $550,000 by the China Horse Club at the 2019 Keeneland November Sale and is out of a mare who was a stakes winner in her native Germany before adding the GII Ballston Spa S. and GIII Beaugay S. while also finishing third in the GI First Lady S. for Team Valor and Graham Motion. Daveron is the dam of a 2-year-old full-brother to Scoobie Quando and was bred to the CHC part-owned MGISW 'TDN Rising Star' Improbable the last two seasons. Scoobie Quando is the 89th worldwide stakes winner for Uncle Mo. Click for the Equibase.com chart or VIDEO, sponsored by TVG.
