The Australian breeding and racing industry has never been stronger; prize money has increased by more than 80% over the last 10 years and the flow-on effect is positively impacting every aspect of the business.

However, horses have become more expensive and therefore expertise every step of the way is even more important.

 

ON THE RACING SIDE

Astute Bloodstock is a thoroughbred talent scouting agency specializing in buying fast horses for top people. We focus on buying tomorrow’s top performers at the yearling sales, the horses in training sales and privately. We also import top stayers from Europe and we sell well-performed racehorses to Hong Kong.

 

ON THE BREEDING SIDE

Louis grew up on a broodmare farm and has 25 years of worldwide experience with Thoroughbreds, including 4 years with Arrowfield Stud. Louis is ideally placed to assist breeders with buying the right mares and selecting the right stallions.

Astute Bloodstock also consults to a handful of breeders and farm owners who are building a commercial broodmare band. As well as buying mares and advising on mating plans, Astute Bloodstock consults on farm management matters, marketing, and yearling sales strategy.
