The Association Francaise des Courtiers (A.F.C)
French bloodstock agents are recognised for their knowledge of pedigrees and of international markets and are often found representing their clients overseas. They are among the most important advisors to breeders and owners, particularly new investors. Whilst the main activity of a bloodstock agent is the purchase and acquisition of racing and breeding stoc, they will advise on anything from stallion selection to management of a horse’s career. Most agents can also assist with accounts and fiscal matters relating to your bloodstock.
Buying and selling racehorses is their main activity, and they also advise many owners and breeders on anything from pedigrees to a horse’s career. Tax representation and invoice handling also come into their line of work.
