The Process

Step 1.
Strategic Review

Boomer Bloodstock begins each relationship with a deep-dive strategic review of the client’s current position and bloodstock. This ensures both parties are on the same page when it comes to assessing the changes required to reach desired goals.

Step 2.
Long term vision

Next we work through these client goals - either breeding to sell, breeding to race, buying to race, pinhooking and so on. This ensures that all decision-making is on the path to achieving the client’s deepest ambitions.

Step 3.
Budget and plan

Our third step involves determining a plan of attack towards achieving client success within a realistic timeframe and budget.

Step 4.
Action

Finally we get started! Craig attends the majority of major international bloodstock sales and has worldwide contacts, ensuring his clients access to the best knowledge and stock available.

Portfolio Management

Here at Boomer Bloodstock, we can manage your entire bloodstock portfolio from start to finish. If you are time poor, or prefer your valuable equine assets to be managed entirely by a team with valuable experience, vast knowledge and global contacts, we can do it all.

This service involves us taking over the entire process of day-to-day management. It is the whole kit and kaboodle - servicing those who may be too busy in other lines of business to handle it themselves, or to offer the peace of mind that comes from having the portfolio in professional and dedicated hands.

Either way, the client receives continuous condensed reports from us about their horses, and can enjoy the absolute security that comes with this complete-package service.

Fee: set fee per horse

Private Purchases

Many bloodstock transactions around the world occur outside of the auction ring and, if you would prefer to buy privately, we can facilitate this for you.

Boomer Bloodstock offers a private purchase service where we can source a horse based on a profile, or accept a client suggestion on a particular horse, and manage the due diligence through the process. This is assisted by our vast network of global thoroughbred contacts.

Private purchases include any type of bloodstock transaction by private treaty, including foals, breeding stock or racehorses. This often presents a valuable opportunity for a client to purchase a horse that may not have presented in an auction ring. We will handle the sourcing of that horse, the negotiation of sale and the execution.

The private purchase service has a distinct advantage when it comes to the buying experience. At auction, a buyer has a very limited time to make decisions, often only a few minutes while the horse is in the ring. It can be a stressful experience. Private treaty allows the buyer to control the price via negotiation, and therefore make careful decisions. Boomer Bloodstock can facilitate every aspect of a private treaty sale.

Fee: 5% commission (ex GST) on sale price

Auction Representation

Auctions are among the busiest and most complicated environments in the bloodstock industry and, here at Boomer Bloodstock, we can make your sale-ring experience a very good one. On your behalf, we will handle the purchase of a whole horse or part of a horse, and we will do all the required background research and inspections to maximize chances of success.

The auction process can be daunting and scary, but Boomer Bloodstock, via expert advice, can completely renovate the client experience. Craig generally attends every major yearling sale on the international calendar, including those in Australia, Europe and North America, inspecting over 6000 yearlings every year around the world.

Combined with an extensive database, Boomer Bloodstock uses detailed statistical analysis. This places the agency at a distinct advantage over clients attempting to achieve the same results by themselves.

Valuations

Bloodstock ownership can be unpredictable. Situations can arise that include ownership disputes, deceased estates or divorce settlements, and an independent valuation of bloodstock can be often required. We can help.

Boomer Bloodstock offers a complete valuation service where we will assess your horse’s value in the current bloodstock market and provide you with a written report that can then be relied upon.

Fee: $250 (ex GST) per report

Mating Advice

Mating advice is the business of advising clients on which stallions to use with their mares, and the projected best possible outcomes of such unions.

Mare owners will often come to Boomer Bloodstock looking for advice on seasonal matings. We will do an analysis of the client’s mare and apply our industry knowledge based on statistics, current performance, physical attributes and historical data. Our aim is to arrive at possible stallion options for the client based on their goals and budget, and then negotiate with the farms to get the best price and terms for the client.

Boomer Bloodstock is a FBAA member, thus this service comes at no cost to the mare owner as the stallion owner will pay Boomer Bloodstock a 5% commission once the service fee has been paid. This has been a historically successful service for us. Craig, acting on behalf of client Daandine Stud, advised and negotiated the mating between Written Tycoon and Kitalpha that resulted in the 2016 Golden Slipper winner and now promising stallion Capitalist.

Fee: no fee payable by mare owner

Consultancy

From time to time, owners enjoy the benefits that come from independent and professional bloodstock advice. Here at Boomer Bloodstock, we offer general services that will assess both your stock and the decisions you make with them.

It could be to save money or save time, or just to get reassurance that you are not making any mistakes. We provide professional advice with a follow-up written report that can include health and well-being checks if required. This service can provide important peace of mind to new and seasoned owners alike.

This is a normal practice in so many other codes of business where qualified and experienced third-party advice is sought and used. We feel it is a very important addition to the services we offer here at Boomer Bloodstock.

Fee: $200/hour (ex GST)
