Richard Knight, Bloodstock Agent.
Thank you for visiting the Richard Knight Bloodstock Agent Ltd website which we hope you will find interesting and informative.
Richard is a successful thoroughbred bloodstock agent & Racing Manager and is responsible for the purchase of Group 1 winners The Wow Signal & Garswood. Prior to setting up as a bloodstock agent in 2012 Richard spent 12 years working for World leading bloodstock organisations including Coolmore, Darley & Juddmonte where he gained fantastic all-round experience.
That experience has been key to Richard’s success and in a short space of time he has purchased a number of high-class racehorses at all ages. The Wow Signal was purchased privately by Richard on behalf of Al Shaqab Racing after he won his maiden on debut. On his next start he won the Coventry Stakes, Gr.2 at Royal Ascot and then went on to win the Prix Morny, Gr.1 – France’s most prestigious 2-year-old race. Injury curtailed The Wow Signal’s 3-year-old racing career and he retired to stand as a stallion at Arrowfield Stud in Australia and Haras de la Boquetot in France.
Garswood was purchased as a foal for just 19,000gns and went on to win a Listed race at 2 years and was beaten just a head in the Gr.3 Cornwallis Stakes. At 3 he won the Listed Free handicap at Newmarket, the Lennox Stakes Gr.2 at Glorious Goodwood and finished the season running 3rd in the Prix de la Foret Gr.1. At 4 years he won the Prix Maurice de Gheest Gr.1 and retired to Cheveley Park Stud.
Other purchases have included the Gr.2 winner & Gr.1 placed performer Up In Time who was purchased as a yearling for just 24,000gns. 2000 Guineas Gr.1 placed performer Bossy Guest was another purchase, this time a €70,000 foal purchase. 2017 & 2018 purchases have included Group winning sprinter Lady Macapa, Group winning 2-year-old Signora Cabello, Listed winner & Gr. 1 placed Beauly and Listed winning speedster El Astronaute. 2019 has started well with Waikuku placed 2nd in Hong Kong Derby Gr.1, Safe Voyage winning the Group 3 John Of Gaunt Stakes Gr.3, Shenanigans winning the Listed Rothesay Stakes, El Astronaute winning the Listed Midsummer Sprint Stakes and the €125,000 Rockingham Premier handicap.
