Uncle Mo still set to run for the roses

(Louisville, KY)

Despite suffering the first defeat of his career in Saturday's Wood Memorial,  Uncle Mo is still being pointed to the Kentucky Derby.   The colt's trainer, Todd Pletcher, said Sunday that Uncle Mo will ship to Churchill Downs on Monday April 18.

Pletcher also said that the slight leg injury the colt received at the start of the Wood is not serious enough to keep them out of the first jewel of the Triple Crown.
