Western Bloodstock Ltd. has entered an agreement with the Texas Thoroughbred Association and Lone Star Park to conduct auctions at the park’s Thoroughbred Sales Pavilion.

Established in 2000, the Weatherford, Texas-based Western Bloodstock is best known in the performance horse realm, and is the official sale company of the National Cutting Horse Association. During the past 18 months, Western Bloodstock has cataloged a total of 2,382 horses for gross sales of more than $35.6 million.

“We are excited about our new alliance with the Texas Thoroughbred Association and Lone Star Park and look forward to bringing our knowledge and expertise in public horse auctions to the table,” said Jeremy Barwick, owner, with his wife Candace, of Western Bloodstock.

The first auction produced by the new alliance will be the Texas Thoroughbred Yearling Sale, scheduled for Monday Aug. 24, 2015. The auctions were formerly hosted by Fasig-Tipton, a Thoroughbred auction house that has pulled back from some markets.

As part of the new Thoroughbred auction plans, Western Bloodstock has teamed with longtime Texas Thoroughbred industry leader Jeff Hooper. Hooper spent nine years as the executive director of the TTA and three and a half years as vice president of administration at Lone Star Park.
