William I. "Bill" Mott (born July 29, 1953 in Mobridge, South Dakota) is an American horse trainer, most notable for his work with Cigar. Mott earned the Eclipse Award for Outstanding Trainer in 1995 and 1996. He was inducted into the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame in 1998 at the age of 45, becoming the second-youngest trainer ever inducted, after D.M. "Mikey" Smithwick (at 42 in 1971). Mott started out training and winning with his own thoroughbred horses at age 15, and won the South Dakota Futurity with Kosmic Tour before he was out of high school. He really excelled in the business by working his way up the ranks by becoming first, an exercise rider, then, an Assistant Trainer for legendary Hall of Fame Trainer Jack Van Berg. In 1976, Mott, the great Trainer Frank Brothers,(who was also Van Berg's Assistant Trainer), and a stellar stable crew guided Van Berg's horses through the wins at Sportsman's, Hawthorne and Arlington Park race tracks in Chicago. They were so successful that Jack Van Berg was named Leading Trainer at Arlington Park, and Leading Trainer in the Nation with 496 wins in 1976, a record that stood until 2003 when broken by Steve Asmussen with 555 wins. Asmussen has broken his own record in 2008 and 2009. Mott worked as an Assistant Trainer to the great Jack Van Berg for three years, before striking out on his own in 1978.
