After nearly seven years at Cornerstone Stud, Ross Hatton has established his own business, Rathmore Bloodstock.
“Having 20 years of experience in the thoroughbred industry behind me, from when I was a teenager working evenings and weekends on my grandfather’s Rathmore Farm in Ireland, through to spending the past 7 years at Cornerstone Stud in various bloodstock, client relations, marketing, sales and operations roles, I feel now is the time for me to launch my own Rathmore Bloodstock business.” Hatton explained
“I would like to thank Sam Hayes and the Cornerstone team, for their terrific support in helping me get started. I look forward to having the continued support of
Cornerstone in the form of being a major client of Rathmore Bloodstock going forward.”
“There are countless friendships with clients formed over the past few years that I hope will continue for many, many years to come. I am delighted to have a few of these friends put their hand up and offer their support already.”
“My partner Max has bought a farm in the hills, less than an hour from Adelaide, and this is where I will be basing myself out of.”
“Being a multifaceted business, I will be operating as a bloodstock consultancy and advisory, with a speciality in trading of young horses, fillies off the track and broodmares. Pedigree research with regard to stallion selection and broodmare purchases is also an area I am confident I can deliver on for breeders wanting to move their bloodstock up a gear. I want all my clients, big and small to enjoy the life they lead in breeding and racing… this game has got to be fun, but it also has to be profitable.”
In addition to this, but separately, Ross has also begun working in a role for Aushorse through the Racing Connections program. In this role he will be looking to break down any barriers of entry in the hope of getting more people involved in racehorse ownership by connecting them with trainers and syndicators to sample a day at the races.
Ross’ phone number will remain the same 0487 173 989 and you can also get in touch with him by emailing email@example.com
“I am very much looking forward to catching up with as many people as possible in the coming weeks and months, most likely at the sales. Please feel free to give me a call anytime.”
