About – Bloodstock Agent

bloodstock agentClark Shepherd – Thoroughbred Bloodstock Agent – Lexington KY

I work as a bloodstock agent, sales consultant, and pedigree analyst for thoroughbreds. Through extensive pedigree analysis, physical evaluation, and results-driven experience, I assist like-minded owners and breeders in challenging the status quo of commercial speculation by breeding or purchasing superior racehorses.

My life and career paths have taken me in and out of the thoroughbred industry as a second generation horseman. I have been fortunate to serve on a variety of levels and in a variety of facets of the industry. From my early years on the racetrack, to working on farms, to managing stallions and partnering in a sales consignment, I’ve had a front row seat for observing and learning the business.

While I have witnessed some achieve greatness, I have also witnessed others suffer even greater failures. These failures may have been the result of bad luck, poor advice, a lack of knowledge, greed, or even deception. As a bloodstock adviser, I can assist you in minimizing failures through sound pedigree principles, horsemanship, and consistency in the implementation of well-designed plans.

I have assisted clients in producing ten 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 solely through mating recommendations. I’m thrilled at the prospect of collaborating with you. Whether you are new to the game, have more losses than wins, or are simply seeking a new approach, I am confident that I can assist you in breeding or purchasing a superior racehorse.

Following decades of diligent research, I am offering my time-tested method of identifying OPTIMAL Matings to owners and breeders committed to success. My recommendations and strategies include specific steps that will increase your likelihood of breeding and/or purchasing a racehorse capable of winning at the sport’s highest levels.
