“Will Johnson worked with me for three years and was a huge asset to deBurgh Equine. He was the all-round package – a great judge of a horse and an excellent reader of form. He unearthed many good horses and closed many successful deals for our existing clients. I wish him the best of luck in his new venture.”

“Will Johnson worked for me as my Assistant Trainer from February 2015 – February 2017. He helped oversee the careers of Group 1 performers Postponed and Belardo and was instrumental in the success of many other horses during his time with me.

He always showed an incredible work ethic and he also showed that he possessed a natural acumen for business. It is absolutely no surprise to see Will flourishing now that he has branched out on his own and I look forward to working with him within the industry in the future.”

“I first worked with Will in 2017 when he joined Hubie de Burgh of de Burgh Equine. Will has a long family history in the industry which includes extensive experience internationally. When it comes to yearling selection, he has a keen eye and a similar mindset to both myself and my Sales Manager, Mark Holland.

When Will returned to Australia and set up his own Bloodstock Company I was more than happy to continue the partnership. Share sales have been at an all-time high this year and being unable to attend the 2020 Magic Millions 2YO’s sales in November due to COVID-19 restrictions it was great to have a trusted colleague on the ground to assist with our selection.”
