Retired jockey and recent sales front man James “Colonel” Moseley passed away Sunday, Oct. 24, according to Journeyman Stud's Brent Fernung. He was 75.

Moseley's riding career spanned from 1976 to 1989, during which he won 488 races with mount earnings of more than $3.5 million. Among his winners were graded stakes winners Donetta (Don Poggio {Arg}) and Bold Brat (Boldnesian), both for trainer Carlos Garcia.

More recently, Moseley was a familiar face at various sales and served as a front man for Taylor Made Sales Agency, as well as for Journeyman Bloodstock.

“Colonel was a great horseman,” said Taylor Made's Duncan Taylor. “He was the ultimate salesman, and a person that always looked out for his fellow man. He was a positive influence at Taylor Made for me and everyone that worked with him.”

Journeyman's Crystal Fernung concurred: “Everybody who stopped by our consignment seemed to know the Colonel and everybody liked him. He was a great ambassador for us and a true friend.”

Moseley is survived by his soulmate Sandy Dendy Moseley; his children, Tracey Davis (spouse Mark), Dendy Moseley (spouse Beth), Ashley Sullivan (spouse Albert), and Danielle Moseley; and his grandchildren Morgan, Jade, Albert, Camden, and Rex.
