Founded in 1976 by James Wigan, London Thoroughbred Services has become a leading international bloodstock agency. It buys and sells racehorses and breeding stock worldwide. Prices range from £6,000 for a foal that subsequently won the Cheveley Park Stakes to a world record £4.8m for a broodmare sold at auction. It also manages stud farms and advises on matings, insurance, transport and valuations. The Dorset firm considers itself a leader in the Japanese market and has been appointed to oversee a big racing and breeding operation in Russia, helping international sales rise 70% a year, from £1.9m in 2007 to £5.3m in 2009.
