Highflyer Bloodstock specialises in sourcing the finest equine talent from across the world.
Having worked together for over 25 years in the horseracing industry, co-directors, Anthony Bromley and David Minton have a proven track record of buying quality winners for their clients. High-profile successes include Grand National winners, Ballabriggs, Party Politics, Hedgehunter and Neptune Collonges, five-time King George Chase winner, Kauto Star, Champion Staying Hurdler Big Buck’s and sprint distance champion, Kingsgate Native as well as 22 Grade 1 winners at the last five Cheltenham Festivals. The two big highlights of the latest National Hunt season for the Highflyer team have been the unbeaten campaigns of the Champion 2-mile chaser Sprinter Sacre and the Champion Stayer/Gold Cup winner Bobs Worth.
Together Anthony and David provide their clients with formidable insight into all aspects of the thoroughbred world. As well as finding racehorses, they can assist with trainer selection, and will provide ongoing advice throughout the horse’s career if required. They can also use their vast experience to purchase young untried stock for clients wishing to resell to both the Flat and Jumping Markets. They are also the masterminds behind the well known and hugely successful Million in Mind Partnership.
With 57 victories in Graded/Listed races for Highflyer purchases, the latest NH season has been one of the company’s greatest ever.
Pride of place goes to the incredible Sprinter Sacre who won at all three of the big spring Festivals.
In addition, the team were also responsible for the winners of the Cheltenham Gold Cup and Hennessy Gold Cup (Bobs Worth), Betfair Chase (Silviniaco Conti), King George VI Chase (Long Run) as well as top class Grade 1 winning hurdler, Zarkandar and The New One. A fitting finale to the season came with wins in both the Scottish National for Alan King and the Bet365 Gold Cup for Henry Daly on the last two Saturdays of the 2012-13 Season.

The start of Cheltenham Week
A busy week ahead for clients of Highflyer Bloodstock with runners in all of the races over the five days of the Cheltenham Festival.
Grade 2 double at Kempton Park
Two decisive victories for Highflyer purchases at the last recognised Cheltenham Trials meeting at Kempton came in the shape of Activial (trained by Harry Fry) in the Grade 2 Adonis Hurdle and Balder Succes (Alan King) in the prestigious Grade 2 Pendil Novices Chase. Whilst both hold strong Grade 1 entries at Cheltenham, they might well just wait for Aintree instead.
Long Run wins
Long Run was in the winners enclosure at Kelso earlier this week when taking the Ivan Straker Memorial Chase. Today's action saw three Highflyer-purchased successes with A Vos Gardes at Ascot and Minellahalfcentury and Aldopicgros at Wincanton.
Listed race winner
Paul Nicholls' Vibrato Valtat, purchased by Highflyer took the Bathwick Tyres Plymouth Novices Hurdle at Exeter today.
Betfair Super Saturday
Highflyer had a Super Saturday to remember with a treble at Newbury and the winner of the Kingmaker Novices Chase at Warwick in the shape of Balder Succes. Highlight of the day was the £20,000-purchase Splash Of Ginge, who made much of the running to take Europe's most valuable jumps handicap, the Betfair Hurdle. Highflyer's two other winners on the card could well be making their own headlines come March at Cheltenham, namely Calipto (Triumph Hurdle) and Smad Place (RSA Chase).
Grade 2 double
At Doncaster today Highflyer purchased had two Grade 2 winners - with Alan King's Valdez winning the Lightning Novices Chase and Malcolm Jefferson's Urban Hymn taking the Albert Bartlett Novices Hurdle. At Cheltenham, Lac Fontana took the valuable handicap hurdle for Paul Nicholls' stable.
More Graded success
Highflyer buys Irish Saint, Taquin Du Seuil and Gitane Du Berlais all comfortably won Grade 2 events in the UK and Ireland over the weekend. In addition, another Highflyer purchase won the £50,000 handicap chase at Ascot, in the shape of Bury Parade. Big spring targets are on the agenda for all four of them now.
