Johnson launches bloodstock agency

Recognised industry participant Dylan Johnson is establishing his own bloodstock consultancy, Dylan Johnson Bloodstock, in a move which will see him retained as the sales agent for Westbury Stud.

Johnson has established himself as a popular and respected figure in the industry since joining the Gerry Harvey owned breeding operation in 2016. 

In his position as the farm’s Business Development Manager he has played a key role in the development of the farm’s stallion ranks, with the successful launch of exciting stallions Tarzino and Telperion being central to his achievements. 

“Operating my own business allows me the opportunity to form a wider scope, focusing on different aspects of the industry,” Johnson said.

“I have a long-held passion for the sport of racing and I am excited at the prospect of being able to work with a different group of clients who have a large emphasis on their racing and trade stock.”

The move will see Johnson remain with Westbury Stud as their dedicated sales agent, focusing on stallion nominations throughout the breeding season and representing the Stud at the annual yearling sales.

“I am incredibly grateful to Russell Warwick, Gerry Harvey and the team at Westbury Stud for providing me with the platform to launch this new venture,” Johnson said.

“I have tremendous belief in the stallion roster at Westbury Stud and the opportunity to remain involved in what promises to be an exciting period for the farm is a real privilege.”

Westbury Stud’s General Manager Russell Warwick was pleased to be able to support Johnson’s transition.

“Dylan has developed an excellent rapport with a number of our clients over the past three years and the timing is perfect for Dylan to branch out into a more independent role within the industry, yet still retaining his relationship with Westbury and our ongoing business,” Warwick said.

“In many ways, nothing has changed, and we look forward to Dylan continuing to promote the Westbury business while he forges new relationships with varied roles in the thoroughbred industry under his Dylan Johnson Bloodstock title.”
