After spending 12 years with leading bloodstock companies, including Coolmore, Darley and Juddmonte, Richard Knight is setting up on his own.

Richard, who is based in Newmarket, is offering foal, yearling and mare purchase services, plus mating plans, nomination booking and racehorse management.

Richard says he gained “first-class all-round experience of the bloodstock industry” through working on the stud farms at Coolmore and Highclere and the advertising and nominations departments at Darley and Juddmonte.

“This experience has already proved itself,” he said.

“From a small amount of horses purchased to date I have bought Group 2 winner and Group 1-placed filly Up In Time, who was bought as a yearling.”

Another purchase was Brazen, bought by Richard for 40,000 guineas as a foal and sold for 80,000 guineas as a yearling. Brazen recently won his two-year-old maiden by six lengths.
