What our clients say.

SackvilleDonald make the process of buying and selling horses a joy. They thoroughly deserve their reputation as the leaders of their generation.”

Hugo Palmer – Classic Winning Trainer

“SackvilleDonald are extremely professional to work with at the sales, they make the job of selecting yearlings much easier for me. The results have showed this, the first yearling Alastair bought for me , was Champion 2yr old filly Chriselliam, who cost just 40,000gns. This has been followed up with Group winners bought each year for me.”

Charlie Hills – Classic Winning Trainer

“I have worked with SackvilleDonald for over five years now. They are a highly professional bloodstock agency whose results speak for themselves. Ed and Alastair have both bought and sold plenty of horses for me and every time it is transparent and effortless”

Michael Owen – Racehorse Owner and International Football Legend

“In my role as an international racing presenter I often find the winners of big worldwide races are SackvilleDonald purchases. Alastair and Ed seem to have an uncanny ability to source top class racing prospects both as yearlings and horses-in-training”

Nick Luck, International Racing Presenter

“Ed has the unique combination of international experience, knowledge of horses and market savy. Three Chimneys Farm has benefitted immensely in the past by our relationship with Ed as our English Representative. Ed led our first Three Chimneys consignment at the 2010 Tattersalls December Sales to a very successful result and has helped us  not only build new relationships overseas, but also strengthen existing ones.”

Case Clay – Three Chimneys Farm, North America

“Alastair and Ed are a pleasure to work with. They are true professionals and honest in their dealings, and I will not hesitate to use their services, as I have done in the past.”

Luca Cumani – Trainer, UK

“Alastair has been buying horses in training for me, for many years. Not only have I found him to be an outstanding judge of horses, he is also great at knowing their form, an excellent horseman and a totally honest and very nice person with it. The horses that Alastair has bought for me, have an outstanding record: every single one has gone on to win after I bought it and an anbelivable 62.5% have gone on to be Group winners, Group placed, or listed winners. Including the outstanding double Gr1 winning mare ODELIZ. Alastair is quite simply the best judge of horses in training! I would recomend Alastair in the highest form to anyone.”

Barbara Keller – Owner

“Starting up as a trainer I wanted to use agents that would give me instant success. With SackvilleDonald’s track record of buying yearlings they were the obvious team to use.”

Ed Walker – Trainer, UK

“For the last few years SackvilleDonald have bought me some really lovely horses. As well as this they have also consistently supported my yard by buying horses of us for the international market. Their commitment, work ethic and knowledge is exceptional and I have no doubt in saying that I will be using them for many years to come.”

Tom Dascombe – Classic winning trainer, UK

I have been using the services of SackvilleDonald since the company was formed in 2011. Since then, year in year out, we have enjoyed tremendous success together in the sales ring with our foal purchases. Between them Ed and Alastair have a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of the racing and bloodstock industry. I find them both a pleasure to work with.”
