ROYAL MO (USA)

Uncle Mo (USA) – Royal Irish Lass (USA) by Saint Ballado (CAN)

Klawervlei Stud is home to the only son of outstanding sire UNCLE MO (Indian Charlie) at stud in South Africa in the form of ROYAL MO.

The latter, one of the best three-year-olds of his generation, showed top-class form in a brief racing career with Royal Mo landing the 2017 G3 Robert B. Lewis Stakes and running third in the same year’s G1 Santa Anita Derby. (The winner of that Santa Anita Derby, GORMELY (Malibu Moon), has since gone on to make a promising start to his stud career, with Gormley seventh on last year’s Leading First Crop Sires in North America list).
His sire Uncle Mo, whose flagbearers in 2021 including G1 Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint winner GOLDEN PAL and promising two-year-old MO DONEGAL, is one of the best stallions at stud in North America today.
Sire of 74 stakes winners from his first six crops, Uncle Mo has also shown great promise as a sire of sires, through his G1 producing sons LAOBAN and NYQUIST.
Royal Mo has some very well bred lots on offer at this year’s Cape Premier Yearling Sale. We hope to see you on the 6th February 2022.
