Ron saddled his first horse as a trainer in 1997 after growing up as a racing fan at Oaklawn Park. Early stars of his stable included Asher, Go Now, One Special Judge, Seek Gold and Woostershear. These horses paved the way for his more recent stakes winners Amie’s Dini, Gentlemen’s Bet, Heykittykittykitty, Livi Makenzie, Right to Vote and Serendip.Moquett saddled Asher to victory in the GIII Gardenia Handicap to claim his first graded stake and acquired the GI Stephen Foster Handicap with Seek Gold as his first Grade I. In his second Breeder’s Cup start, Moquett led Gentlemen’s Bet to a third place finish in the 2013 XpressBet Breeder’s Cup Sprint, notching a campaign for the horse that included a Grade I placing earlier in the year at Saratoga. Most recently in 2014, Ron was second with Right to Vote in the GIII Cornhusker Handicap and finished third with Far Right in the $1,000,000 GIII Delta Downs Jackpot Stakes.While you can find Moquett under his “Horses First” sign in the barn every morning, his proudest accomplishment are his three children and two grandchildren.
Court grew up in Ponce Inlet, Florida and began his riding career in 1980 in Colorado at Centennial Park. Court has notched over 3,000 career victories and has won riding titles at Oaklawn Park, Hoosier Park, and Ellis Park. Court has won several major stakes races including the Citation Handicap (G1) and the Frank E. Kilroe Mile Handicap aboard Leroidesanimaux. In 2011, we won the $1,000,000 Arkansas Derby on Archarcharch and he scored international success with his win in the 2003 Japan Dirt Cup aboard Fleetsreet Dancer.

Bandini--Run Kate Run, by Cherokee Run
Amie’s Dini is from the second crop of Grade 1 winner Bandini and is her sire’s most successful offspring to date.
From two crops to race thus far, Bandini’s foals have averaged a winning distance of 6.4 furlongs, scoring from 4 ½ to 8 ½ furlongs.
Amie’s Dini is out of the unraced Cherokee Run mare Run Kate Run, making her a half-sister to Grade 2-placed multiple stakes heroine Kid Kate. The pair’s fourth dam is stakes winner Knot, who produced Grade 2-placed stakes winner Hitch and dual stakes victress Thread, who would go on herself to foal multiple Grade 2 diva Wend.
Cherokee Run was honored as the champion sprinter of 1994 but the dark bay was proven at a distance of ground as well, running second in the 1993 Preakness Stakes. His progeny have won from four furlongs to 2 ¼ miles, posting a 6.8 furlong average winning distance.
Cherokee Run’s top offspring won at route distances during their careers, including War Pass and Chilukki, both of whom were awarded Eclipse Awards for their two-year-old campaigns.
