Located at Finger Lakes racetrack in Farmington, NY (near Rochester, NY).
When we first heard his name, we assumed he was by Laoban, a son of Uncle Mo, and thus we expected to see the typical Uncle Mo progeny walk out: tall, dark, and handsome with good bone and an excellent brain. And we were right on all of these counts! Laban M Mo’s groom said he has a great personality and is super to work around without any vices. That’s exactly what we observed. He was a friendly, curious, and personable peppermint hound during his photo shoot. He’s a big, young, physically impressive horse with width and depth, standing squarely on straight, correct legs with good bone. He has nice feet with a decent heel. And all of this is packaged in a rich, almost black, velvety coat. While he needs to fill out from his racing physique and develop a topline, just imagine how stunning he can be once this happens! He was relaxed and respectful durin his video- he displayed a relaxed, swinging walk with nice overstep and an easy, fluid trot with spring and good push from behind. With his lovely movement, we could see him doing equally well in hunters, dressage, or eventing. He’s got a huge stride too- even though he is jogging at an easy, relaxed pace, his handler is getting quite the work out! He is clearly a barn favorite, and we overheard many comments to that effect as we were taking our photos. He has a solid racing record, with 3 wins, and 7 additional top three finishes in 23 starts. Last year he was winning at the allowance leverl but his year, he has yet to win even when dropped into the lowest claiming levels. Thus, his trainer realizes that he woudl prefer a new career, and she wants to move him on while he is still s sound and happy Mr. Tall Dark and Handsome. He has unlimited potential for any discipline, but with his lanky frame and size and laid back personality combined with athleticism, we can see him excelling as a fox hunter, or an eventer. Laban M Mo is by Laoban, who is a son of Uncle Mo out of a Speightstown mare. Horses from the Uncle Mo line are usually great jumpers — indeed, an Uncle Mo offspring won the show hunter division in this year’s RRP. Laban M Mo’s dam is by Forefathers, who si by Gone West, and her dam comes from the In Reality sire line.
Price: $3,000 (negotiable to trainer-approved home).
