: Piccadilly Circus, the dam of champion sire Fastnet Rock, is set to visit US wonder horse Uncle Mo at Coolmore Stud this spring.Coolmore
Australia general manager Michael Kirwan is looking foreward to the match as he is an unabashed fan of the Uncle Mo
He was a spectacular racehorse and as a two-year-old he completely dominated his rivals every time he ran," Kirwan said.
"He's also an extremely good looking individual and I haven't met a soul who hasn't been hugely impressed with him physically.
"The support he's received in the US is testament to that, as are the ringing endorsements that he's been given by the likes of James Bester and Peter O'Brien people who know a nice horse when they see one.
"I'm very much looking forward to his arrival here and I can't wait for Australasian breeders to see him.
