According to the Thoroughbred Times "Uncle Mo Entered, Not Definite for Derby"
Color me confused.
We have three days before post time, the colt was said to be 100% sound, but if not 100% he would not be running.
Sunday we heard from Mike Repole "If he doesn't go off the favorite, I will make him the favorite."
Brave words, confidence, slam-dunk. Let's go! Mo is ready. Like Sleipnir when he swam across the North Sea. Nothing can stop him.
Now it appears something has changed. Is he 92% ready and will be 100% in three days? Is he 84% ready, but needs a 16% bump? Do we bet or don't bet? Does the next horse on the earnings list's owners actually get to celebrate Derby week as a starter, or do they waste cash on a hotel watching the NHL playoffs with no A/E? Do bettors make an odds line with or without Mo?
Questions, questions. Confusion continues to reign. But maybe it's just me.
