Champion and Denali sales graduate UNCLE MO worked for the second time since returning to training earlier this month, breezing a half-mile in :50.38 on Thursday on the Saratoga Race Course main track. Daily Racing Form reports that the three-year-old went in splits of :12.70 and :25.37, completing his final quarter-mile in :25.01. He also galloped out five furlongs in 1:03.38 and six furlongs in 1:16.99. UNCLE MO’s connections hope he will make his return to the races in the Foxwoods King’s Bishop S. (G1) at seven furlongs on August 27 at Saratoga with a possible show down with Bob Baffert’s The Factor. UNCLE MO missed the spring classics while he battled a rare liver disease.
