Uncle Mo is owned by Repole Stables, trained by Todd Pletcher, and has hall of fame jockey John Velazquez aboard.  Pletcher ended his Kentucky Derby jinx last year with Super Saver, who won the Derby after Pletcher’s top horse was unable to make the starting gate in a great twist of irony.  Uncle Mo is by Indian Charlie and Playa Maya by Arch.

Pletcher is one of the most respected trainers in Kentucky Derby gambling and is now rated in the same class as past dominant trainers such as Bob Baffert and D. Wayne Lucas.  Baffert has 3 Breeders Cup wins with over $8.6 million in earnings in that prestigious event.

Velazquez has 7 Breeders Cup wins for his illustrious career and was in top form for 2010 with 337 wins and a 48% mark for being in the money.

Uncle Mo has three big wins that add to his impressive credentials which will make him a popular choice to make a Kentucky Derby bet online with.

On March 12 Uncle Mo won the Timely Writer at Gulfstream Park.  The Timely Writer was one mile in length as Uncle MO went off as a prohibitive 3-5 favorite.  After being bumped at the Start Uncle Mo went on to win going away in dominant fashion by almost 4 lengths.

Uncle Mo caught the attention of everyone at the Breeders Cup last year with his win in the Grade 1 Breeders Cup Juvenile as he won as a 7-5 choice and became a favorite with the Kentucky Derby odds almost immediately after that payout.  He pulled away at the stretch for an impressive show of power to get the win.
