Bloodstock Investments with an Edge

At Jamie Railton Sales Agency we aim to provide private individuals with high yield investment opportunities concentrating solely on quality bloodstock assets.

We specialise in pinhooking investments, the buying and selling of bloodstock, in particular the purchase of foals.  The company has established itself as one of the leading pinhookers in Europe, realising a return on investment of:

2018 - 23%
2017 - 27%
2016 - 43%
2015 - 21%
2014 - 79%
2013 - 48%
2012 - 20%
2011 - 32%
2010 - 32%

For our 2018/19 portfolio, please see our Private Sales page.

Jamie Railton has also enjoyed considerable success as a consignor which goes hand-in-hand with pinhooking.

As with any high yield investments, it is also high risk.  However, we offer an unbiased and clear focus on the markets and are committed to achieving the best results for you and your investment.

Key to the business is Jamie himself who has earned an exceptional reputation based on providing an intuitive and transparent service.  He is able to identify the potential in foals and yearlings, purchasing those he sees as good value with a view to selling them on at a profit several months later.

An excellent horseman and competitive by nature, Jamie is meticulous in everything he does including superior feed management and personal hands-on involvement with any bloodstock under his care. 


As a business which prides itself on providing a quality service, we recognise the benefit of highly skilled staff.

Given the seasonal nature of the business, we are often looking for skilled ground staff and riders in addition to personnel with experience in sales preparation and/or breaking.

The team

Jamie Railton heads up a team of skilled and courteous staff with years of experience in bloodstock, especially the sales preparation of yearlings. Key team members include:

Jamie Railton
Jamie has been buying and selling bloodstock for over 20 years. Whilst initially a jump jockey, during which time he rode more than 250 winners, his passion has always been in Flat racing and bloodstock. After several years successfully pinhooking foals to sell as yearlings, and spending time in America on a few stud farms to further his knowledge, he set up Jamie Railton Bloodstock in 2000.

Since then Jamie has built up a reputation as a meticulous and honest professional, with an intuitive knowledge of the bloodstock markets. Competitive by nature, he is always looking to improve his service and ensure any bloodstock under his care reaches its optimum potential, the objective being to achieve maximum results for his clients for whom he has acted as sales consignor or investment partner for many years.
