Klawervlei Stud’s well performed young sire ROYAL MO (Uncle Mo) continues to catch the eye as an exciting young stallion, and the Klawervlei resident came up with his fifth first crop winner at Kenilworth on Saturday, pushing Royal Mo to a 55% strike rate. He is currently THE LEADING FRESHMEN SIRE with 9 runners, 5 winners!

Royal Mo’s son KING MO had run well in his two previous starts, and duly got off the mark when he won Saturday’s Laas and Scholtz Maiden Plate (1000m).

Trained by Vaughan Marshall, King Mo powered home down the inside running rail to win going away by a length and a quarter. Ridden to victory by Oswald Noach, King Mo did well to account for the well bred first-timer Max The Otter and he should go on from this victory.

Bred by Klawervlei Stud, King Mo races for Mr Du Plessis.

His sire Royal Mo had enjoyed a fine weekend, with his son MATSUYAMO scoring at Fairview on Friday and another son ROYAL PORT LOUIS finishing a close up third in the third race at Kenilworth on Saturday.

By the same sire as proven sire, and US champion, NYQUIST, Royal Mo has four lots on offer at this year’s August Two Year Old Sale.
