Mott Saddles 4,000th Winner
Hall of Fame trainer Bill Mott sent out winner No. 4,000 Aug. 7 when Sequoia Racing’s Mystic won the seventh race at Saratoga Race Course under jockey Kent Desormeaux. It was another milestone in a storied career for the conditioner who earlier this year won his first classic race with Belmont Stakes (gr. I) winner Drosselmeyer.
The 57-year-old Mott, best known for campaigning two-time Horse of the Year Cigar, reached win No. 3,999 the day before with the 2-year-old filly Avanta in Saratoga’s second race. For the rest of the story: http://www.bloodhorse.com/horse-racing/articles/58282/mott-saddles-4000th-winner
