Racing enthusiasts are invited to join leading Thoroughbred owner Maggi Moss for Thursday's edition of bloodhorse.com “Talkin’ Horses,” sponsored by AIRshod.
Well on her way to a second consecutive leading North American owner title midway through the 2007 season, Moss will be the guest live online at www.bloodhorse.com/talkinhorses.com July 19 beginning at Noon ET (9:00 a.m. PT).
Moss recently added a Churchill Downs meet win to her already impressive list of triumphs at Fair Grounds, Aqueduct, Belmont, and Prairie Meadows—as she continues to debunk the myth of male dominance that has traditionally surrounded the racing game.
A University of Kentucky graduate and lifelong horse enthusiast, the Iowa attorney describes the Churchill title as especially sweet, considering that the royalty of racing in Kentucky is so steeped in the “old boys club” tradition. “Being a single woman,” Moss recently observed, “nobody ever gave me anything." She added that winning a leading owner title at Churchill Downs made her “feel like Cinderella.”
Moss led all owners with 211 wins from 756 starts (for a 27% winning percentage and total earnings of $3,956,619) in 2006. Currently, she ranks second behind Frank Stronach in earnings ($2,582,244 to $2,346,596), but first in the win column with 110 winners from 373 starters and a 29.5% winning pace.
