Why choose Astute Bloodstock?

To benefit from a successful track record

Louis started his career as agent with a bang! His first private racehorse purchase, Thump, won the Surround Stakes Gr2 at her second start for her new owner. While at Lindsay Park, Louis worked as part of the yearling selection team who purchased some outstanding gallopers such as Reann, All American, Nadeem, I Got Chills, Catechuchu, Husson Lightning, Zizou, Churchill Downs and many others.  In addition, Louis was directly responsible for selecting several inexpensive yearlings which turn out to become stakes performers.
