+UNCLE WALTER (c, 2, Uncle Mo–Look for Good, by Unbridled’s Song) sent off as the 7-2 second choice in this first trip to the post, became the 13th winner for his freshman sire (by Indian Charlie) at Keeneland Thursday. Settled at the back of the pack bar one behind fractions of :23.14 and :46.77, the bay angled off the inside to the attack directly afterward and was steered four paths deep for the stretch drive by Joel Rosario. He surged into contention with a furlong to run and cruised past the frontrunners for a handy score. Call the Colonel (Colonel John) attempted to go with the winner, but missed by a neck ahead of stretch leader Epic Journey (J P’s Gusto). Hard Labor (Hard Spun), a son of GISW Mea Domina (Dance Brightly), finished fifth after a slow beginning. The winner is a half to Jagati (Yes It’s True), GSP, $107,398. Look for Good has a yearling colt by Tale of Ekati, a filly by Mineshaft in 2015 and was bred back to Eskendereya this spring. This is the same family as GISW Stocks Up (Kris S.). Sales history: $85,000 Ylg ’14 KEESEP. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $33,600. Click for the Equibase.com chart or VIDEO, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.
