A conversation with Bloodstock Agent Frank Brothers

August 19, 2021

Everything you wanted to know about being a Bloodstock Agent but were afraid to ask

On this episode of Past the Wire’s podcast Gate to Wire brought to you by Spendthrift Farm and Kingdom Nutrition Company Bloodstock Agent Frank Brothers joins Michael Vale and Jonathan Stettin.

Mike and Jon take you into the fast paced high high pressure of buying yearlings for major racing stables at sales like Saratoga in August and Keeneland in the fall.

Frank is not only a top Bloodstock Agent he was also a top Thoroughbred Trainer and classic winner. Frank trained horses like Arch, the sire of Blame, and Pulpit, who went on to be a powerful sire himself. 

Mike and Jon talk with Frank about what to look for and the awkward times when horses don’t turn out as planned or hoped. 

Thank you for tuning into this episode of Past the Wire’s podcast Gate to Wire! We hope you enjoy the show. 


Good Work here, particularly this, which is being missed by many with good intentions. Folks wanting racing to end aren't getting messages that matter to them. Thanks.
