Cesar De Alba will be in the irons when Moonist returns in the $20,000 Katella Handicap on Sunday, March 22, at Los Alamitos. Following a brilliant year, Moonist was named the 2014 American Quarter Horse Association Champion 3-Year-Old & Champion 3-Year-Old Gelding.
Their last outing in the Grade 1 Los Alamitos Winter Championship on February 15, saw the pair under the wire as a driving second. Before placing, Moonist won nine races straight under De Alba.
Moonist has won 14 of 22 lifetime starts, earning $492,084 in purse money. Coming off a slight setback towards the end of 2014, Moonist and De Alba will be looking to repeat their hard-knocking streak winning nine in a row. In fact, the pair broke records when they won four Derbies at Los Al.
Overnite Capital is the proud sponsor of Cesar De Alba. We recognize his work ethic, athletic ability and strong character as traits that mark an elite athlete.
