Grade 1 Winner Wicked Whisper Retired, Will Be Bred To Uncle Mo

Wicked Whisper, a Grade 1 winner, has been retired from racing and will be bred to top sire Uncle Mo during the 2021 breeding season, BloodHorse reports.

The 4-year-old daughter of Liam’s Map finished her career with three wins in eight career starts for earnings of $471,550. After winning on debut at Saratoga as a 2-year-old, she took the Grade 1 Frizette Stakes, then finished fifth in the 2019 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies at Santa Anita Park.

In 2020, Wicked Whisper won the G3 Miss Preakness Stakes, and she finished second in the G3 Charles Town Oaks.

Wicked Whisper was trained by Steve Asmussen for owners Alex and JoAnn Lieblong. She was bred in Kentucky by Siena Farms.

Uncle Mo, a 13-year-old son of Indian Charlie, stands at Ashford Stud in Versailles, Ky., for an advertised fee of $175,000.

His first crop of runners set the all-time earnings record for a freshman sire, and his runners are led by champion and Kentucky Derby winner Nyquist, and Grade 1 winners including Bast, Outwork, Dream Tree, Mo Town, and Gomo.
