Pauls Mill sales agency formed in Kentucky

BEN Walden, Mark Toothaker, and Jim Perrone have joined forces to form a new sales agency, Kentucky-based Pauls Mill Sales.

The agency will offer their first consignment at the Fasig-Tipton Kentucky July Selected Yearling Sale later this year and plan to be a presence at many of the major and mixed sales worldwide.

Each own considerable experience in the industry. Walden and his wife Elaine are former owners of Vinery and stand four stallions at Pauls Mill in Kentucky including US champion Summer Bird. Toothaker was a partner with Tommy Eastham in prominent consignor Legacy Bloodstock before the partnership dissolved in February while Jim Perrone is the owner of consignment agency Perrone Sales.

“We are three guys who love selling horses and love this industry,” said Toothaker. “I have been blessed with great clients who possess great bloodstock, including Spendthrift Farm. When I looked at the opportunity to add to that existing clientele the kind of quality bloodstock that Pauls Mill owns, it became very exciting.”

Walden added: “I have quietly observed Mark and Jim for some time now, and their honesty and professionalism really stood out among the crowd. Jim has had great success on the Eastern Seaboard and Mark has worked hard to cultivate good business in the Midwest. Combine that with Pauls Mill’s tremendous partners, and we believe our consignments will have a strong impact right out of the gate.”
