Bespoke Bloodstock Publications

The highest quality, individually produced to meet your needs

Private Stud Books

With so much racing and breeding information at our fingertips, Weatherbys has been producing high quality Private Stud Books for its customers for many years. Whether you just have a couple of mares or a band of many, we can tailor a Stud Book or Stud Card to suit your needs.

All books are produced with stud records and pedigrees for each broodmare, with the option to include photographs. Additional pages can be included, such as stallion pedigrees, horses in training details, foal and yearling lists or stud history. The books make an ideal marketing tool for your stud or simply to keep a record of your stud’s achievements.

Private Stud Books are produced each year for many clients, for example Juddmonte Farms, Bloomsbury Stud, Watership Down Stud, Ballymacoll Stud, Lanwades Stud, Floors Farming, Crimbourne Stud and Gestüt Ammerland in Germany.

Whether it is a printed book, pages presented in a simple clip binder, an A4 stud card or professionally bound leather with gold or silver blocking, we lavish the same care and attention to detail on every one we produce. Our focus is always to deliver a result that will delight you.

Consignment Books

With a large number of bloodstock sales in a few short weeks, the period at the end of the year is a busy time for those selling. Weatherbys provides many leading Sales Consignors with updated pedigree information in our essential customized Consignment Books.

This publication provides data at the vendor’s fingertips to target the market for their Consignment and help answer those detailed pedigree questions posed by potential purchasers.

The colour-coded pedigree page highlights updates to race records, previous sales prices and purchasers, the current or last trainer, handicap ratings and distances won over for known animals within the first three dams.

Each lot also has a stallion page, giving the sire’s sales averages, that year’s black type performances, where he stands and the covering fee. We can also include successful cross-analysis reports and other extended stallion information to tailor the books to your needs.

This all comes in an A4-sized plastic covered ring bound book designed specifically for the individual consignor. Two copies are provided (more if required) so that those opportunities are not missed.
