We could not be more excited about Uno Mas Bourbon's dominant maiden-breaking victory for the 2022 Bourbon Lane Yearling Partnership, won on an off the turf, one turn mile maiden special at Churchill with a $120,000 purse!

We felt pretty confident pre-race and we were a narrow favorite, possibly due to the Hernandez factor - our friend Derby winner Brian Hernandez was in the saddle! Brian broke Uno Mas well, kept a rail trip, split horses at the top of the stretch and “kicked away."

The post-race comments were cautiously optimistic. “Never used the stick in the stretch. Just fanned it at him. He wanted to stop at the 1/16th pole but he kept on under his own. Just learning his job. Beat a bunch of grass horses. He was the only one who handled the slop.”

We plan to keep him on the turf for his next start, targeting a big race at Kentucky Downs this fall if all continues to go well. Knowing that he can handle the slop gives us powerful options!

Big thanks to Ian Wilkes and his team for a great training job, Brian Hernandez for an expert ride and congratulations to our partners! Uno Mas Bourbon was a $75,000 yearling purchase from Legacy Bloodstock at Keeneland September.
