Uncle Mo's Nomos Leaves No Doubt In Monmouth Turf Debut

Uncle Mo | Coolmore

1st-Monmouth, $55,250, Msw, 8-6, 2yo, 1mT, 1:39.91, fm, 4 lengths.
NOMOS (c, 2, Uncle Mo–Westit {GB} {SP-Fr, SP-USA}, by Tapit) went off favored at 9-5 in this grass debut and got a clean start against the fence from the two slot after the rail horse steadied and was pulled up early in the race. Racing in the middle of a tightly-bunched group into the backstretch through an easy opening quarter in :24.15, he stayed glued to the inside and began to pick up momentum and position as the field swung into the far turn. As racing room opened up three wide past the quarter pole, Nomos had a clear path to victory and opened up inside the final furlong to win decisively by four lengths. A full-brother to stakes placed 3-year-old Soviet Excess, Nomos has another full-brother born this year named Waystar while his dam was bred back to Gun Runner for next year. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $33,000. Click for the Equibase.com chart or VIDEO, sponsored by FanDuel TV.
