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 Waikuku, 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. 2020 Hong Kong Group 1 Winner Waikuku was a €33,000 yearling selection on behalf of trainer John Oxx and The Wow Signal was a private horses-in-training purchase 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. He was later crowned French Champion 2-year-old.
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 stand at Cheveley Park Stud.
Other purchases have included the 2020 City Of York Stakes Gr.2 winner Safe Voyage, Glorious Stakes Gr.3 winner Pablo Escobarr, 2020 Achilles Stakes L.R. winner El Astronaute, 2020 Jebel Ali Stakes L.R. winner Mark Of Approval, 2019 Group 2 winning 2-year-old Night Colours to name just a few. In fact in 2019 alone, Richard enjoyed 6 individual black-type winners including 3 Group winners and already in 2020 Richard has a Group 1 winner, a Group 2 winner, Group 3 winner and 2 x Listed winners to his name.
