Consigning

WH Bloodstock consign at the leading Bloodstock sales in England and Ireland. Although we predominantly sell yearlings we do also prepare/consign mares, stores and plan to start consigning at the Horses In Training sales.

Sales & Graduates 2019

WH have been consigning yearlings at auction since 2018 and have enjoyed considerable success. Their first pinhook involved a Tamayuz colt out of Lemon Rock purchased for 35,000 Gns at the Tattersalls Foal Sale (pictured). The following August the colt realised £110,000 (selling to Shadwell Stud) for its group of owners at the Doncaster Premier Yearling Sale. Perhaps their biggest success to date came a month later during their first sale at Tattersalls Book 1. They consigned just one colt, a flashy and powerful son of Showcasing out of the Listed winning Galileo mare, Crystal Gal (pictured). He grabbed the attention of all the leading buyers and was knocked down to Phoenix Thoroughbreds for 650,000 Gns. The same year they sold a handsome son of Brazen Beau, now named He’s A Keeper , to Sackville Donald for 67,000 Gns in Book 2. In training with Tom Dascombe, the horse won his second start at two by 4 lengths and was placed in a Listed Race, finishing the season on a mark of 93. Off the back of a successful first sales season, WH increased their numbers from 13 to 20 in 2019 and also sent yearlings to sell over in Ireland at Fairyhouse and Goffs for the first time. They enjoyed more pinhooking success selling an athletic son of Acclamation for £110,000 (purchased for €68,000) at Doncaster and an attractive Sea The Moon filly for 110,000 Gns (purchased for 72,000 Gns) in Book 1. Of the 6 horses they took to Doncaster, 3 sold for more than £50,000 and 2 for more than £100,000 which was a very pleasing result.

Sales & Graduates
Mimi Wadham and Violet Hesketh formed WH Bloodstock in 2018. The pair met on the Godolphin Flying Start and when they graduated, they decided to start a business together focussed on breeding, pinhooking and consigning. Before forming their joint venture they gained more invaluable experience working in various areas of the bloodstock industry before actually setting up the business in 2018.

Since then the business has gone from strength to strength and they have been successfully buying, selling, breaking in and consigning thoroughbreds.
