Wattle Bloodstock is a comprehensive bloodstock agency that assists in the selection, purchase and management of thoroughbreds.
Company founder and director Peter Twomey acquired a tremendous passion for horse racing from a young age, with the 1968 Bong Bong Cup won by his grandfather Frank Twomey taking pride of place on his desk from a young age.
Peter grew up in Cootamundra, New South Wales, attending country and metropolitan race meetings with his family of racehorse lovers. Trips to local studs such as Transmedia Park Stud (now Twin Hills Stud) are fond memories, as are the horse riding opportunites around friends farms, and experiencing the thrill of the thoroughbred auctions at ‘Newmarket’ in Sydney.
Passion, dedication and a thirst for knowledge has seen Peter proactively search out the best minds in the global thoroughbred community to learn and develop an understanding and respect for the modern thoroughbred.
After completing a Bachelor of Economics at the University of Sydney Peter travelled to Ireland working at Kildanagan Stud before a move to Melbourne to work at International Racehorse Transport. During yearling sales season Peter took time out to gain work experience with bloodstock agents Damon Gabbedy and Vin Cox, before taking up a position with Australian thoroughbred auctioneers William Inglis and Son (Inglis) as an intern in early 2008.
Peter spent the next nine years at Inglis in the bloodstock and marketing teams, relocating to Singapore for four years to grow the business throughout Asia, before returning to Sydney as Business Development and Communications Manager, plus Asia Representative.
In November 2017 Peter made to move to establish Wattle Bloodstock and relocated to Wagga Wagga in New South Wales to keep a close eye on his client's young thoroughbred stock being educated for successful racing careers in Asia.
With a wealth of knowledge and experience in Australia and Asia, Peter is uniquely positioned to assist the individual needs of Wattle Bloodstock’s clients to reach their goals.
