Sales Catalog Analysis

We start with a brief email or phone consult to discuss your price range and goals for the prospective horses. I will collaborate with your trainer or racing manager to create the short list or provide backup research for their short list. Same day phone/email consultations are available.

Depending on the number of horses per sales book, I offer a short list of between 20 – 50 horses, although the Keeneland September Yearling Sale may contain more prospects.

Reports contain the following for each hip:

Nicking ReportsI review the nicking reports and offer a nicking analysis of the first two generations.
Sales Record

Distaff LineEvaluation of the immediate female family, including sales prices/records, class level and soundness of siblings and dam plus blacktype in the first two.
ConformationIf photos are available, a generalized overview of the conformation, noting any major weakness. If I attend the sale, a written review and photos of each prospect will be included.
