Unbridled Mo held off the late charge of Power of Snunner to win the G3 Doubledogdare Stakes at Keeneland April 21. The race marked the second graded stakes victory of the year for the 4-year-old filly, who captured the G3 Houston Ladies Classic earlier this year.
Unbridled Mo’s Keeneland win helped move her sire, Uncle Mo, into fifth on the American Graded Stakes Standings sire list. The 9-year-old stallion is the sire of three individual graded stakes winners that have captured four graded stakes races. Uncle Mo is also the sire of Mo’ Green, winner of the G3 Top Flight Handicap and Royal Mo, winner of the G3 Robert B. Lewis Stakes.
Darley and Juddmonte Farms moved into a first-place tie on the AGS breeders list this week, with each having bred three individual graded stakes winners that have won a total of five graded stakes. Imperative became Darley’s third graded stakes winner this year when he won the G2 Charles Town Classic. Darley is also the breeder of Watershed (G3 Ben Ali) and Dickinson (G1 Jenny Wiley, G3 Hillsborough, and G3 Suwanee River).
Juddmonte Farms’ three graded stakes winners in 2017 are Suffused (G3 The Very One, G3 La Prevoyante), Honorable Duty (G2 New Orleans Handicap, G3 Mineshaft), and Inordinate (G3 San Juan Capistrano).
