Uncle Mo Filly Flies Home to Take Selima S.
A debut winner at odds-on going two turns on the Delaware turf Aug. 30, Monkeys Uncle found herself much further back early in this shorter affair, but the result was the same. Dropped back to second last from her high draw, the Jackson colorbearer still had a ton to do midway along the bend. She came alive while well out into the course, and gobbled up foes with an impressive turn of foot to reach contention as they straightened. Taking over in midstretch, she idled a bit in the late stages, but had enough left in the tank to fend off Shoobiedoobydoo’s late advances.
