Lynch leaves Lillingston to set up own agency
BARRY LYNCH, who has been working with Luke Lillingston for the past five years, is to go it alone with his own agency.
Lynch Bloodstock will operate from offices in Fermoy, County Cork.
"Luke has been a great mentor and educator," said Lynch. "His knowledge and expertise are second to none."
Lynch is a graduate of the Godolphin Flying Start and has worked with various studs and trainers at Lillingston Bloodstock.
Lynch added: "During my time with Luke we had success such as Madam Dancealot, Barleysugar, Mount Nelson [as a stallion], Sruthan, Lady Penko, Keenes Royal [the dam of Ivawood] and more.
"I've learned that integrity, quality service and hard work are crucial to success in the bloodstock industry and I hope to bring these attributes to my own attributes to my own business going forward.
"I will cover a varied range of bloodstock services for clients including consultation on breeding stock, horses in training and yearling purchase."
Lillingston said: "It has been a pleasure having Barry work for Lillingston Bloodstock. He's a very popular person and I wish him every luck and success in his future career."
