Getting started in thoroughbred racing and breeding

For all of us involved in the world of horses there was a moment of first contact, that first visit to a stud farm, the races or the sales. As the largest auction sales consignor in Europe selling over 300 horses a year, The Castlebridge Consignment may well become part of that first contact for you.

Suggesting the best horse to suit a client’s needs is an integral part of our Castlebridge sales service. It is in our own best interest to sell good horses that can hopefully fulfil the expectations of the buyer.

Our advice is not only available at public auction. The four partners of Castlebridge have a huge amount of experience in the bloodstock world that can be called upon to assist in all areas of the racing industry, be it racing, breeding, buying or selling.

With stud farms in both the UK and Ireland, we can offer advice on bloodstock property investments and the renovation and maintenance of such property. Castlebridge offices are located close to the auction sales centres in England (Tattersalls), Ireland (Goffs), and France (Arqana) so once again offering a unique pan-European perspective on the bloodstock industry.

Please follow the link below for a short video on some of the attractions of Newmarket, home of British racing and base to the Castlebridge UK office and stud farm.
