About

bloodstock agentClark Shepherd Bloodstock Agent

I am a thoroughbred bloodstock agent and sales adviser. I help like-minded owners and breeders challenge the status-quo of commercial speculation by breeding or buying better racehorses via extensive pedigree analysis, physical evaluation and results-driven experience.

As a second generation horseman, my life and career paths have taken me in and out of the thoroughbred industry. I have been blessed to serve at all levels and within many facets of the industry. From growing up on the racetrack, to working on farms, to managing stallions and partnering in a sales consignment, I have had a front row seat in observing and learning the business.

While I have observed some have great victories, I have witnessed others experience even greater failures. These failures may have resulted from bad luck, bad advice, lack of knowledge, greed or even sometimes from deception. As a bloodstock adviser, I can help you to minimize failures through sound pedigree principles, horsemanship and consistency from well-designed plans.

With mating recommendations alone, I have helped clients produce nine graded stakes winners (three of them Grade 1 winners, including a Kentucky Derby winner and champion) and countless stakes winners, graded stakes-placed runners and consistent allowance horses. I am excited for the opportunity to partner with you. Whether you are new to the game, experiencing more losses than wins or just looking for a new approach, I am confident that I can help you breed or buy a better racehorse.

After decades of diligent research, I am offering my proven method of identifying OPTIMAL Matings to owners and breeders who are serious about success. My recommendations and strategies include actionable steps that will improve your chances of breeding and/or purchasing a racehorse capable of winning at the top tiers of the sport.
