Uncle Vinny FAQ

I am often asked about Uncle Vinny’s racing career, specifically what happened, he started off like gang busters being Uncle Mo’s first graded stakes winner and then faded. Well from everything I have been told in talking with those affiliated with Vinny when he was racing, he was a very fast horse, tons of speed, but much like a lot of two year olds who started racing early he injured his knees sometime around his fourth start and probably should have been retired at that time, but the connections wanted to move forward with him. Again, this is only what I have been told. My advice is to look at his first four races if you wish to evaluate his ability that he may pass on to his progeny.
Uncle Vinny has had 13 runners and 11 winners. However, if you look at the book of mares he was bred too, it is surprising he has had this many winners, that is until you look at Uncle Vinny’s dam side. Arealhotlover has had 8 runners, 8 winners, 3 blacktype winners, with an average speed figure of 87 and 135K per starter in earnings! That is pretty strong bottom half of a pedigree! Unfortunately while in Florida Uncle Vinny was owned by one of the most disliked owners in the thoroughbred industry and this limited his book of mares. In fact Uncle Vinny’s mares are have the lowest Comparable Index number (quality of progeny() at 0.84 of any of Uncle Mo’s sons at stud, yet he leads all the uncle Mo’s in percentage of winners! Uncle Vinny was limited in Florida by his owner and was limited in Pennsylvania by the number of lifetime breeding contracts possessed by Uncle Lino – anyone wanting an Uncle Mo line in the Mid Atlantic had already signed a lifetime contract with Uncle Lino. Since moving to the Southwest his book has quadrupled and the results will be amazing to see when the first crop hits the track in 2025!
Uncle Vinny is approximately 16.1, he is a spitting image to Uncle Mo just not as tall. He is very well put together and has a disposition unlike most Uncle Mo progeny. Uncle Vinny’s nickname is Vinny Barbarino due to his very fun personality! His progeny are easy to train and handle.
