As I am a small Thoroughbred breeder and in some cases attempting to resurrect older families back to Commercial status, I find Ken's advice of great value in making my breeding selections.
He is the utmost professional, working to my brief and giving a comprehensive overview of suitable stallion selections for my mares' and most importantly he gives back up theory with no bias as he has no affiliations with any Stud Farms.
I have had success in the past with his advice when in 2006 I asked Ken to look at the pedigrees of some weanling fillies I had short-listed from the NZB Weanling Sale.
Ken selected for me a filly by Elusive City - Culburra Beach who raced very successfully as Dasoudi and achieved multiple Stakes placings, two at Group 1 level.
He is passionate about his work and as such I have no hesitation in recommending Premier Pedigrees services.
We have recently used the services of Premier Pedigrees in New Zealand for the first time and found them to be thorough and comprehensive in their analysis and matching of our mares' to stallions.
We were provided with a detailed written explanation behind the stallion choices for each of our mares'.
The feedback was provided within a quick timeframe and the communication was exceptional and updates are provided free of charge on any new stallion to come into the market if a late Stud arrival.
It is reassuring to have confirmation of our choices you may have made and to get new insights you may not have considered.
It is obvious that Premier Pedigrees have vast experience and superior knowledge and understanding of pedigrees and we have no hesitation in recommending their services to anyone involved in racehorse breeding.
