Ward Files Motion For Summary Judgment Against Ramseys, Alleging Payments Have Stopped

Weeks after trainer Mike Maker filed a motion in Kentucky civil court against Eclipse Award-winning owner/breeders Ken and Sarah Ramsey, Wesley Ward has filed a similar motion alleging payments from the couple have stopped. The Ramseys were sued earlier this year by both trainers for allegedly failing to pay board and training bills. Ken Ramsey told media and the trainers at the time the lawsuits became public that he intended to catch up on the nearly $2 million he owed Ward and Maker.

Ward’s motion for summary judgement, filed in Jessamine Circuit Court on Aug. 3, states that the couple agreed to make minimum monthly payments of $100,000 until the total overdue balance of $974,790.40 was satisfied. Ward alleges he received his May payment of $100,000 as well as miscellaneous amounts from purses and claims, but after that the payments stopped. He also alleges that the couple did not pay all the amounts owed to him from purses and claims.

Ward now says the remaining unpaid balance from Ramsey horses, including past and current horses, totals $903,274.96.

At the time he filed his civil suit, Ward also placed liens on 44 Ramsey horses in his care.

Maker filed a similar motion in July, stating that Ramsey agreed to pay him $100,000 or more a month until he was caught up, and that he made payments of $127,531.70 in March, $131, 290 in April, and $160,000 in May. After that, Maker said, he stopped receiving payments from Ramsey.
