Meet Adrian Clark
Hundreds of hours of live television, two big management positions & a good share of life experience has moulded me into the person you find today.
Doing the job right really matters to me. Working relationships need to be 'real'; that's tough to find, so I pick those I do business with carefully. You can expect my service & demeanour to be at all times thoroughly professional and I don't do hidden agendas.
Don't get me wrong though, I do like lots of laughs and balance in my life has become increasingly important.
So that's me, here's a brief snapshot of my career.
I have worked in the Racing and Breeding industry for nearly four decades. I had 15 years with Trackside Television where I presented & produced the weekly breeding show The Ford Report. I also did live TV with Trackside, TV3 & SkyNZ. I was named NZ Racing Broadcaster of the Year on three occasions. Following that I was appointed for a 3-year period as CEO of New Zealand Thoroughbred Marketing, with a brief to promote the NZ-bred horse to the world. Next was 8 years with Nearco Stud as its' Manager; taking it from a newcomer to a significant & recognised brand within the Australasian breeding industry. During that time, I was responsible for planning the mating of Hong Kong Champion Beauty Generation. It was very satisfying to see all my hard work pay off when Nearco Stud was named '2019 New Zealand Breeder of the Year'.
These days I’m self-employed operating my bloodstock agency (Adrian Clark Bloodstock Consultancy Ltd) and syndication business (Challenge Racehorse Syndications Ltd).
If you're looking for assistance in any of the areas of thoroughbred bloodstock services I offer, please do get in touch.
The NZ-Bred Advantage
NZ breeding industry's constant delivery
There's something that racing jurisdictions around the globe have come to expect from the New Zealand thoroughbred breeding community - a constant delivery of equine athletes who can perform at the highest level on world racing stages.
It's not something new. New Zealand thoroughbred breeders have been doing it for decades - from the mighty Phar Lap in the 1920s to a hundred years on, Hong Kong's all-time leading money earner, Beauty Generation . Inbetween times there have been too many greats carrying the NZ-suffix to mention here, but the likes of Balmerino, Sunline, Starcraft and So You Think come readily to mind.
While New Zealand racing is facing tough times - and it's been tough out there long before Covid-19 came along - the kiwi thoroughbred breeding industry has continued on doing what it does best; breeding, raising and educating great stock for international demand.
Fashions within the racing and breeding industry come and go. One thing remains constant, New Zealand's terrific ability to breed world-class racehorses.
