Moose is a lovely dark bay OTTB, who did not have a very good racing career since it only lasted one race. Moose was bred at stud farm in the Western Cape called Highlands Stud (Now Ridgemont Highlands) and he was sold at the 2016 KwaZulu-Natal Yearling Sales at Sibaya Casino for R1 050 000. After which he was trained, ran 1 Barrier Trial and then arrived at my gate a couple weeks after in July 2018.

Graham’s Fame now named Grim Reaper.

Moose had gotten time off from July 2018 till January 2019 when his schooling began and he jump his first jumps in March 2019, He is quite a challenge to work with but shows great ability, I plan to keep him for myself and take him up the grades. Once he gets the hang on everything and gains mileage I believe he will be very hard to beat.

He is quite quirky as they say, his favourite things to do when fresh or grumpy….. he is always grumpy, include but are not limited to bucking, kicking out at nothing, spontaneous 180 degree spins and he loves to squeal like a little mare. Hopefully as he matures that will all get less.
