moonist 5.4.15

It is just over a year since Overnite Capital and jockey Cesar DeAlba began our sponsorship journey. From the beginning, we have been happy to support Cesar’s riding as well as his commitment to responsible care for the horses during and after their careers.

As a professional jockey Cesar’s home base is Los Alamitos Race Course in Cypress, California.. His niche is Quarter Horse racing over shorter sprint distances. Races are held Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights and Cesar can have as many as eight rides in an evening. Cesar’s ability to do this is testimony to his dedication to the sport and the rigorous fitness conditioning that enables him to be at the top of his sport.

When we think of Cesar, often our next thought is one of his mounts, Moonist. Moonist is a 4-year-old gelding who is the American Quarter Horse Association’s 2014 Overall Champion 3-Year-Old and Champion 3-Year-Old Gelding. This year, Moonist is again on track to dominate his division through the fall championship season.

Another of Cesar’s mounts is the Brazilian import Jake Gold BR, the 2014 AQHA South American Champion, now based in the U.S. Last week the pair won the Bank of America California Championship Challenge securing a berth in the Bank of America Championship Challenge that will include runners from the U.S., Canada, and Central and South America.
