Maggi Moss

 Residence: Des Moines, Iowa

  • A semi-retired trial lawyer with a successful record as both a plaintiff and a defender, Moss turned her competitive passions from the law to racing beginning in 1998 and has been consistently ranked in the top 10 nationally by wins and money earned for almost a decade. In 2013, she had 14 wins which placed her 2nd in the standings at Oaklawn.
  • Moss enjoyed her first Grade 1 win in 2012 with the 2-year-old filly So Many Ways, winner of Saratoga’s Spinaway Stakes. In 2013, the filly won the Eight Belles Stakes and Charles Town Oaks.
  • Moss grew up in the city of Des Moines, but her father purchased a horse farm and she started riding at age 10. She competed on the show circuit and won the Kansas City American Royal. She also competed in the first US Grand Prix Jumping Championship, was a three-time national Equestrian Champion and has served as an analyst for ESPN.
  • She started “dabbling” in racing with a claimer named Apak at Oaklawn in 1998. The horse went on to set track records at Prairie Meadows for Moss and from there she launched a prolific claiming operation. Today her stable is spread among several trainers across the country.
  • She led the nation in wins in 2006 and has titles at Aqueduct, Churchill Downs, 10 at Prairie Meadows, Belmont Park and Fair Grounds. She was a finalist for the Eclipse Award in 2007.
