Trainer Ron Moquett Discusses Whitmore’s Chances in Breeders’ Cup Sprint

In a revealing interview, US Racing’s Tara Cochran sits down with Ron Moquett, trainer of Whitmore, about that one’s chances in the Breeders’ Cup Sprint (GI). Whitmore is 9-of-13 at the distance and was last seen finishing a close second to Promises Fulfilled (who is also in the Sprint) in the Phoenix Stakes (G2) at nearby Keeneland.

Moquett talks about Whitmore’s training coming up to the big race, his recent gate schooling and where he expects his horse to be in the early stages of the Sprint. He also shares some personal stories, including a health scare that changed his perspective on horse racing and life.
