To assist the Owners, the Club maintains and publishes from time to time a non-exhaustive list of bloodstock agents (the List) in major racing jurisdictions which have assisted Owners in previous horse purchases.
The Club has invited all bloodstock agents which wish to be included in the List to sign an undertaking to agree to abide by the Club’s Bloodstock Code of Practice (the “Code of Practice”) which sets out the conduct expected of bloodstock agents when assisting Owners to purchase horses. The giving of such undertaking is entirely voluntary. Bloodstock agents which have signed the undertaking are listed in Section A and Bloodstock agents which have not signed the undertaking are listed in Section B.
The List is published for Owners’ information only and they should not be regarded as approved or endorsed by the Club. The Club makes no representation, warranties or guarantees whatsoever, whether express or implied, that the relevant information under the List is accurate, complete or up-to-date. Owners are free to engage bloodstock agents that are not on the List. The Club however reserves the right to reject any application for importation if it is in the Club’s opinion that the purchase of the horse fails to comply with the requirements under the Code of Practice.
For the avoidance of doubt, please note that the Club does not conduct any due diligence, security or credibility vetting on any bloodstock agent under the List, nor should the inclusion of any bloodstock agent in the List be deemed as an official recommendation and/or assurance of the quality of such bloodstock agent on the part of the Club. Owners should conduct their own due diligence before engaging any bloodstock agents on the List. The engagement of any bloodstock agent is entirely a matter between the particular Owner and the bloodstock agent, and the Club is not responsible for any issue or dispute arising from such engagement.
