Moss Won't Part With So Many Ways

On July 20, owner Maggi Moss watched from her Iowa home as her 2-year-old filly So Many Ways won the Grade 3 Schuylerville. When the filly runs in next Sunday’s Grade 1 Spinaway, Moss isn’t sure where she’ll be watching.

A reluctant flyer, Moss had to travel to Saratoga earlier this month to speak about thoroughbred aftercare at the Albany Law School Saratoga Institute on Racing and Gaming Law. Though initially hesitant to make the trip again, her experience here tempts her to return.

“I had a great time in Saratoga,” she said Friday from Iowa. “People are so nice.  At the track, everyone says ‘hi’; they’re just unbelievable. They say such wonderful things.” 

She also got to meet her stakes-winning filly, visiting the Saratoga barn of trainer Anthony Dutrow; according to Moss, Dutrow said that the filly is “thriving” as she prepares for her second stakes attempt. 

Though Moss initially entertained offers to sell So Many Ways, both after her maiden win at Parx Racing in June and after the Schuylerville, she has no regrets about keeping her. It was, she says, a financially sound decision.
