Uncle Mo Filly Second To Seven Figures at Keeneland

|

Hip 89 | Keeneland

After paying $575,000 for a Speightstown colt (hip 17) earlier in the session, Don Adam's Courtlandt Farm waded into seven-figure territory as the opening session at Keeneland September neared its midpoint, going to $1.1 million for a filly by Uncle Mo. The dark bay is a daughter of Nikki's Choice (Forestry), a half-sister to GSP Moyo Honey (Mizzen Mast), whose own dam Charming Lauren (Meadowlake) was a full-sister to Grade I-winning juvenile Greenwood Lake. Easily the most popular of her dam's four foals to be offered at public auction, hip 89, consigned by Paramount Sales, is bred on the identical cross to champion and GI Kentucky Derby hero Nyquist and GSW Auntie Joy. Uncle Mo was represented by a pair of new black-type winners this past week.
