Congratulations, Jennifer Cowdell, on your purchase of Moonshine Banjo! We hope that this nice gelding brings you as much enjoyment as he has brought us. Thank you agent, Cody Cowdell for your work in bringing this sale together.
Moonshine Banjo is an outstanding non-pro derby horse! He is extreme…ly quiet and kind (has been rode extensively by my short stirrup aged kiddos), yet talented enough for the Open. He has a huge, smooth stop that anyone can ride and he is easy to circle and turn (has +1’d his circles and stops in the show pen). He is very sound and has a sweet, sweet personality.
He has only been shown a handful of times (LE around $9,000) and has been in the money every time out. Moonshine was the 4 Yr Old Non-Pro Derby champ at the Best Little Derby in the West (with 3 points of penalties resulting from rider error!) Most recently Moonshine was 4 yr old Non Pro Derby and L1 Derby Champ, Reserve in the L4 andL2 Non-pro as well as Reserve in the 4 YR old Open Derby at the Luc McGregor Memorial Derby in Nampa, ID.
