BANKERS MOONSHINE, 2018 16h dark bay gelding
Located at a farm next to the Finger Lakes Race Track, Farmington, NY (near Rochester)
This beautiful and mellow young gelding needs some rehab time, but in the right hands we think he is going to be a stunning horse who can excel in many new careers. He was recently diagnosed with a chip in his left front sesamoid; it has been x-rayed and evaluated by a vet and the x-rays can be shared with seriously interested people. The trainer and groom both informed us the vet has given him an excellent prognosis — she even thought that he could return to racing next year. But his owner/trainer does not want to do that, feeling that Bankers Moonshine will be better off in a non-racing career. Based on the vet’s prognosis, the trainer told us that with several months off and then careful patient restarting, he should be able to do any new discipline. Although Bankers Moonshine did not race, he does have published workouts, as recently as mid-July, so he is fully eligible for the 2022 RRP. Bankers Moonshine has been handling his stall rest very well, and he was perfectly behaved outside for his photos. He is beautifully put together, has a gorgeous head and kind eye and a shiny dappled coat. His trainer reports that he is a very friendly horse who loves treats — and his groom attested that he loves to eat, so this easy keeper should be able to maintain his glossy condition. He has an outstanding pedigree for sport: his sire Bank Heist is a son of Maria’s Mon, and his dam is by Malibu Moon. Please note, we only have a walk video, due to recent injury — but note how well behaved he is in the video for a young fit horse who had been just on stall rest for a couple of weeks. An excellent home that can do right by Bankers Moonshine is essential.
Price: $1500 negotiable to an excellent home
