A pair of promising youngsters broke their maidens on Saturday. At Gulfstream, Repole Stable’s Mo Power put the lessons learned in his first start last month to good use, leading a 1-2-3 OBS sweep of a $50,000 maiden special weight test taking over from front running Dixie Runner (March ’15) inside the final furlong and then holding off a late charge by Doctor Mounty (June ’15) to win by a length. Dixie Runner settled for third. Mo Power, trained by Todd Pletcher, earned $30,000 for his effort. The 3-year-old colt by Uncle Mo was purchased for $325,000 by Jonathan Thomas on behalf of Repole Stable out of the Eddie Woods consignment at the 2015 April Sale after turning in a quarter in :21 2/5 at the Under Tack Show. watch his under tack video
