MOONSHINE MAKER, 2017 16.1+ chestnut gelding
Located at a farm in Victor NY very close to the Finger Lakes Race Track
This flashy young gelding is what everyone says they want: eye catching good looks, solid bone, young, lightly raced, clean and sound, good mover, good temperament, great sport horse pedigree, unlimited potential for many new careers! And at the bargain price at which he is offered, we think this guy will get snapped up very quickly, so if you are interested we recommend acting fast. Moonshine Maker is with one of our favorite track trainers, for whom we have helped place many high quality horses over the years who are now excelling as show hunters, jumpers, eventers, and dressage horses. They tell us that Moonshine Maker just isn‘t showing enough racing ability to persist with him on the track, and that he is sound with a good attitude and temperament and is good to handle. He has only 9 starts, and no wins and just one second place finish – so racing is not where his aptitude lies. He has an uphill build with a strong shoulder, and in his jog video he shows good engagement from behind, and an even rhythm and loftiness that suggest he could excel in many sport disciplines. His pedigree is ideal for jumping disciplines. His sire is Discreet Cat, and we have placed several Discreet Cat offspring over the last several years who have all turned out to be amazing scopey and brave jumpers. His dam is by Smoke Glacken, who is a sire coveted in both eventing and H/J disciplines. When looking through Making Moonshine’s pedigree, we see all the sires that make up the dream sport horse pedigree: Smoke Glacken, Two Punch, Private Account, Damascus, Pleasant Colony, Saint Ballado, Halo, Roberto. Because he is at the trainer’s private farm, which is just a few miles from the track, you must call to make an appointment if you want to see him. But we think the farm visit will be well worth your time!
