Here is your opportunity to own and run a big, flashy gelding by the great sire First Moonflash! If you're looking for a horse with the talent and athletic ability along with a sound mind and willing attitude to take you to the top of the leader boards, this is your chance! Moonraker Thoughts ""Goose"" is a 7yr old gelding standing 16.1 HH who is bred to run barrels! If you haven't heard of 2020 American qualifier Wenda Johnson and her two great mounts, Dreams First Flash and MacGyver Flash I highly recommend you look them up! They are 2 of his 1/2 brothers setting the industry on fire! I would have a novel of all their winnings and prestigious qualifications if I wrote it all out. Also ""Goose"" is 1/2 brothers to Lacey Harmon's BFA $100,000 slot race winner, Flashin Fritter.

Goose is legged up and ready to continue his seasoning. All the hard work is done, just ready for someone who has the time to haul him. The kindest horse I've ever owned and the most willing attitude to please. He is broke correct and very soft. Despite limited hauling due to my job/schedule being a registered nurse, Goose had been clocking in the 2D in TOUGH Texas competition (prior to Covid lockdown) and has the potential to compete against the best in the business! No tricks to this horse, he is very honest and kind. I can't say enough good things about him.

Extremely low maintenance, great solid feet and built to last. I have clean radiographs of bilateral knees post chip removal surgery in 2017 along with sound respiratory status post tie back procedure also in 2017. He is sound and never taken a lame step! If I was able to commit the time that he deserves I would not be selling him. He's truly a superstar just waiting for his opportunity!
