“Pin-hooking” is the simple practice of purchasing Thoroughbred horses and reselling them at a later date, it is not without risk, but the rewards can be substantial. There are many options within pinhooking; the purchase of foals at 9 – 11 months old at auction and re-presenting them the following year at the Yearling Sales is one of the most common.
This can be an extremely profitable business providing the foals are very carefully selected based on their pedigree, conformation and athletic ability. There are obvious risks associated with selling yearlings at public auction, as the value depends entirely on two or more prospective purchasers bidding to a high price. However, time spent researching pedigrees and the market, an eye to spot value in a foal that will grow into a quality yearling and a thorough sales preparation process can be rewarded by excellent returns on investment.
We have a proven track record with our pinhook purchases, purchasing a small, select group of foals for resale.
Mildmay Equine’s pinhooking syndicates offer an accessible, affordable and lower risk alternative to purchasing outright.
Why not invest in a Mildmay Equine Syndicate, enjoy the experience and hopefully make money?
