Bloodstock Investments with the Edge

At Jamie Railton 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 or yearlings to sell on before they race.  The company has established itself as one of the leading pinhookers in Europe, realising a return on investment for the past four years of:

2016 - 43%

2015 - 21%

2014 - 79%

2013 - 48%

2012 - 20%

2011 - 32%

2010 - 32%

Jamie Railton has also enjoyed considerable success as a consignor which goes hand-in-hand with pinhooking. More recently The Channel Consignment was formed with Alban Chevalier du Fau in order to specialise in the French bloodstock sales.

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 Railton, who has earned an exceptional reputation based on providing an intuitive and transparent service.  He is able to identify the potential in youngstock such as 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.
