This booklet is designed to serve the needs not only of the FBA membership but also those people who would like to know what reputable bloodstock agents are available in England to advise them.
For the benefit of the uninitiated, a bloodstock agent is an independent professional who is available to advise and assist a client, for an agreed fee, in all matters connected with thoroughbred racing and breeding.
Bloodstock agents are able to provide a wide range of services including:-
Attendance at all major international sales.
Advice on purchase of stock, particularly with regard to conformation and pedigree.
Stud management and mating plans.
Valuations, insurance, pedigree production etc.
Liaison with trainers, representing clients at race meetings, and regular reporting on clients’ horses.
Advising on sale of clients stock privately or at auction.
Many clients have established long term relationships with their agent, particularly if they are frequently overseas. Such an understanding is valuable to a client who can rely on independent advice and obtain a composite report on all his bloodstock interests. It is comforting to know that a person of integrity is available at all times to watch over their racing and/or breeding interests. The Secretary is generally available to assist anyone who needs any further advice or help.
