I offer my expertise as a bloodstock agent, sales consultant, and pedigree analyst to assist in breeding or purchasing superior thoroughbred racehorses through sound pedigree principles, horsemanship, and consistent implementation of well-designed plans.

Services

Mating & Pedigree Analysis

My work in mating and pedigree analysis involves evaluating the genetic potential and strengths of thoroughbred horses in order to determine the best match for breeding purposes and for racing potential. I use extensive knowledge of pedigrees, physical evaluation, and results-driven experience to assist clients in making informed decisions about breeding or purchasing thoroughbred racehorses for their breeding or racing programs.

Stallion Seasons & Shares

My work in buying stallion seasons and shares involves helping clients purchase breeding seasons to top thoroughbred stallions for their mares. This involves analyzing the stallion’s pedigree, race record, and physical conformation to ensure that it is a good match for the client’s mare. I also assist in finding the best pricing and terms for stallion seasons and shares, and help negotiate the terms of the final contract. By doing so, I help my clients maximize the value of their investment in the thoroughbred industry.

Sales Representation

My work in sales representation involves representing clients in the buying and selling of thoroughbred horses, both privately and at public auction. I provide expert advice and guidance on the market, ensuring my clients receive the best value for their investment. I use my industry knowledge and expertise in pedigree analysis, physical evaluation, and performance analysis to assist clients in making informed decisions.

bloodstock agent

I’ve worked with Clark for the last seven years and he helps to add another dimension to my skills. Particularly, with pedigrees and mating analysis. Great guy, trustworthy!

Clark brings integrity and independence to his recommendations. His engineering background causes him to make data based decisions rather than running with the latest market fad. Much of The Elkstone Group’s breeding success has been attributable to Clark.

Clark Shepherd is a superb pedigree analyst. He utilizes his comprehensive knowledge of bloodlines to select the appropriate breeding for a broodmare considering both sales potential and expected racing performance of the future foal. His expertise includes providing effective assistance at weanling, yearling and 2yo sales. Couldn’t be more pleased with our relationship.
