The sire phenomenon UNCLE MO is the sire of our new stallion and graded stakes winner UNCLE VINNY. UNCLE MO tops today’s Third Crop Sire List by Cumulative Black-Type Winners with 25, impressive numbers continue for the hot young son of INDIAN CHARLIE. He has 7 Grade I stakes horses, which includes UNCLE VINNY, third in the G1 Hopeful S. Kentucky Derby sire UNCLE MO currently has top three-year-olds in North America and Australia with an prospects for the 2017 Kentucky Derby (Royal Mo) and Preakness (Conquest Mo Money).
Nearly one year ago, after UNCLE MO’s NYQUIST won the 2016 Kentucky Derby,the Blood Horse featured a story by Eric Mitchell titled “What is Uncle Mo Worth?” Mitchell states that “A week before the second leg of the Triple Crown, industry experts conservatively projected the value of Ashford Stud’s son of Indian Charlie had grown to between $120-$140 million. Depending on where Uncle Mo’s stud fee progresses over the next few years, experts estimate that Uncle Mo’s value could climb as high as $245 million.”
At Prestige, we can not think of a better reason than that to stand this grand stallion prospect. Interest from Florida breeders, as well as, many from other states are sending mares to UNCLE VINNY. As the developer of top sires such as Medaglia d’Oro, we see UNCLE VINNY as the perfect opportunity for small breeders to make a sizable return.
