DENISE MARTIN, STAR THOROUGHBREDS
‘I wish to place on record my enormous gratitude for the work undertaken by Glenesk Thoroughbreds to prepare and market our three Star Thoroughbreds’ mares sold at the 2018 Magic Millions broodmare sale. The results certainly exceeded our expectations and these were clearly achieved because of all the work undertaken by each of you to ensure that all three mares looked in wonderful condition with all prospective buyers well aware of their presence at the sale…
Selling mares at a public auction is a new experience for us, but going forward this will now be a permanent fixture on our calendar. Thank you Glenesk Thoroughbreds for a marvellous job and for guiding us through the broodmare sale auction process…….Very many thanks.’
STUART HYMAN, PRESIDENT, SHYMAN FARM INC., TORONTO, CANADA

JOAN CONNERY, OWNER/BREEDER, SYDNEY, NSW
I had the good fortune to engage as my thoroughbred horse advisor Brett Howard. I retained him to find a good black type mare to add to my breeding stock. He found AIKO, a mare by ROYAL ACADEMY. AIKO had a reasonable record in Perth and she was about to be retired. AIKO had a half brother that was racing in South Africa. I organised a vet examination and transported her from Perth to Sandy Hollow. On Brett’s advice she was bred to CHOISIR in October 2006. In June 2007 it was decided to sell the mare together with our other stock. AIKO’S half brother won a Group 2 race a week before the sale. Brett found this important information and circulated it immediately with his usual vigilance. At the Melbourne sale the mare AIKO fetched a sum of $240,000, having been purchased for $60,000. Brett has a good knowledge of horse values and knows the market. He has judgement, nous as well as good business sense.
BRENT & JUDY HUDSON, PROPRIETORS, LUSTRE LODGE, ALISON, NSW
We have known Brett and Rachael Howard for quite a few years and have found them both to be very professional and knowledgeable but still easy to talk to. They are always willing to listen and offer unbiased advice.
BRIAN MCGRATH, OWNER/BREEDER & NATIONAL SALES MANAGER, GRANT BURGE WINES, THERESA PARK, NSW
Two words immediately come to mind when I think of our 10 year association with Randwick Bloodstock – HONESTY AND INTEGRITY. Brett has been most helpful whether it be for just getting advice, securing stallion nominations or share foal arrangements or the selling or purchasing of thoroughbreds. In fact it is fair to say that since commencing this association, Brett Howard has played a role in every decision we have had to make. I would thoroughly recommend Randwick Bloodstock to anyone seeking guidance in the sport of kings.
CATHY WEBB, PROPRIETOR, CHEVELEY PARK & VICTORIAN STALLION PARTNERSHIP, LILYDALE, VICTORIA
We have been dealing with Randwick Bloodstock for about twenty years now through our stud Cheveley Park and our business Victorian Stallion Partnership. RBA has assisted us in many transactions local and international and both buying and selling, and as a consequence we have been involved in many successful ventures through RBA. We therefore have the upmost confidence in Brett Howard’s ability to assess appropriate market values and trust his judgement totally so are more than happy to have RBA represent us to either sell bloodstock privately or to purchase on our behalf either privately or at auction.
PETER TALTY, PROPRIETOR, MILLENIUM THOROUGHBREDS, SYDNEY, NSW

GRAEME HUNT, PROPRIETOR, CAMBRIDGE HUNT LTD, WELLINGTON, NEW ZEALAND
Being NZ based, it’s not always easy to have a presence on Australian soil. But Brett and Rachael have made it easy for the times we couldn’t be there. Their judgement is expert and their service to us has never given us a moment’s worry. Love the mare sale list and scan it eagerly every time it comes our way.
