Uncle Remus was trained by Colin Jillings, who in his illustrious training career had five Derby victories, but it is probably fair to say that none of the other four winners had the same amount of ability as Uncle Remus.
Perhaps overshadowed by Balmerino, whose deeds in the Northern Hemisphere were constantly in the headlines, Uncle Remus was a great horse in his own right, as shown by his impressive record of 15 wins from just 28 starts.
Following his racing career he was reasonably successful at stud, but never sired a horse with anything like his own ability.
