For seven racing seasons we watched the fiery, sometimes cantankerous, chestnut gelding named Whitmore blitz down the racetrack. We all cheered him on as he finally got his Breeder’s Cup win in his fourth try at the ripe age of seven. But did you know that when he came to the track as a two year old it took him nearly two months to be able to just canter around the track? He would likely have never gotten to all those winners circles without the horsemanship and guidance of Laura Moquett. Now she is guiding him through his second career off track.
