Kentucky Derby favorite Uncle Mo might be a no-go – Chicago Sun-Times
NEW YORK (AP) — Uncle Mo has a gastrointestinal infection and may be a no-go for the Kentucky Derby on May 7.
The early Derby favorite lost for the first time in the Wood Memorial on Saturday at Aqueduct, finishing third as the prohibitive 1-10 betting choice.
The 2-year-old champion was given blood tests on Tuesday after his poor performance, and veterinarians discovered the infection. Trainer Todd Pletcher and owner Mike Repole were told Uncle Mo could continue training while undergoing treatment.
