GMB Racing's Mo Tom has officially been retired from racing, reports bloodhorse.com. The 5-year-old son of Uncle Mo will stand at Jay Adcock's Red River Farm in Louisiana in 2018.
“Mo Tom has had a nice racing career. Even though he suffered through some tough trips and a few injuries, he was still able to make nearly $700,000 in earnings,” said Greg Bensel, who manages GMB Racing for the Bensons. “We tried to do a few things with him late in his racing career—like bringing him back quickly in the Clark Handicap (G1) and then trying him on the grass. We just did not want to give up on him; he is such a great-looking, sound horse and was working great in the mornings. None of those late experiments should take away from the career he had as a racehorse.”
From 18 starts, Mo Tom finished on the board 10 times and earned major victories include the G3 Lecomte, Ohio Derby, and Street Sense Stakes. He is a half-brother to Grade 1-placed Beautician and stakes winner Bella Castani.
