Uncle Mo originally was scheduled to have his final work on Monday, but Pletcher prefers to have his final works for Saturday races the previous Sunday. Pletcher moved the work up a day after seeing that Uncle Mo looked well Friday morning and because of a dicey weather forecast here for Sunday and Monday.

Stay Thirsty always had been penciled in for his final work on Sunday.
