A winning half-brother to champion and leading sire Uncle Mo, Editorial covered 32 mares his first year standing at Roland Farm in Warwick. The 5-year-old son of War Front is one of seven winners from eight foals of racing age for the stakes-placed Arch mare Playa Maya, who is also the dam of Editorial’s 2018 Irish classic-placed full sister Could It Be Love.

Eclipse Award-winning Uncle Mo was the undefeated champion 2-year-old of 2010 after winning the Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile and Champagne Stakes, and went on to earn $1,606,000 with five wins in eight starts. One of the hottest stallions in the world, with nearly 50 stakes winners in four crops to race, including Kentucky Derby-G1-winning champion Nyquist, Uncle Mo currently stands for $125,000 live foal.

Editorial enters his second year at stud for $3,500 live foal as the property of Climax Stallions.
