Testimonials


"Louis is a bloodstock agent with sound local and international experience. He has a solid international network and has been a successful selector of horses. Louis was a valuable contributor to Arrowfield before he left to establish Astute Bloodstock." 

John Messara - Arrowfield Stud



"I have used the services of Astute Bloodstock on several occasions to buy and sell horses including our recent Gr2 winner Thump.  Louis is very professional, very pleasant and clear in his assessments."

Bruce Neill - Cressfield




"Louis grew up amongst horses and constantly strives to learn more about thoroughbreds and the industry.

He is a good horseman, a fine judge of yearlings, a diligent form analyst and a straight shooter in business.

We purchased Pilote d'Essai from Europe on Astute Bloodstock's recommendation. The horse has now won the Ballarat Cup and the Pakenham Cup in devastating fashion and he looks like a Gr1 stayer in the making.

I would have no hesitation to recommend the services of Astute Bloodstock."


David Hayes - Champion trainer






"The professional and experienced approach Astute has brought to our selection process has greatly improved our horses' performance for our owners. We highly recommend Astute Bloodstock."



Peter James - Owner

Nicolas de Chambure, Haras d'Etreham, France











"Leading up to the 2013 breeding season, Louis professionally advised us with our mating choices. We found his work to be very thorough and we look forward to seeing the resulting foals."
