Uncle Mo and Zoffany to shuttle to Australia

DUAL Grade 1 winner Uncle Mo and the Group 1-winning juvenile Zoffany will both shuttle to Coolmore's base in Australia later this year.

Uncle Mo, who is currently standing at Coolmore's Ashford Stud in Kentucky, was an outstanding juvenile. A sonof the late Indian Charlie, Uncle Mo was unbeaten in three starts as a juvenile, winning the Grade 1 Champagne Stakes and Grade 1 Breeders' Cup Juvenile. His two Grade 1 victories led to him being crowned America's champion two-year-old in 2010.

As a three-year-old Uncle Mo was narrowly touched off in the Grade 1 King's Bishop Stakes at Saratoga before winning the Grade 2 Kelso Handicap.

During his three-year-old campaign his owner, Mike Repole, sold an undisclosed interest in Uncle Mo's breeding rights to Coolmore, but retained 100% of his racing rights

Zoffany, a son of Juddmonte's leading sire Dansili, was a precocious juvenile for Aidan O'Brien, wining five of his seven starts, including the Group 1 Phoenix Stakes at the Curragh.

As a three-year-old he ran the unbeaten World Champion Frankel to a length in the Group 1 St James's Palace Stakes. He was then unlucky in defeat when beaten a head by Mutual Trust in the Group1 Prix Jean Prat at Chantilly.
