Tom Blain

STUD MANAGER

Tom joined Barton Stud in January 2013. Under his management the Stud has continued to invest heavily in new facilities as well as improving existing infrastructure to create what is now a top of the range facility for all aspects of thoroughbred breeding.

” This is a hugely exciting time for Barton Stud and it is my pleasure to head up such a dynamic team in this beautiful place. Everyone at Barton works incredibly hard and all are committed to the continued success of the operation. Investment is being made into the Stud’s infrastructure as well as building a quality broodmare band. It is my belief that nothing should be left to chance when breeding horses and it is important always to strive to do even better.

Barton Stud is quite simply the perfect place to rear thoroughbreds and I feel both proud and  fortunate to run such a unique place for the Broughton family. “
