Julian Blaxland & Gai Waterhouse Forge Relationship
A fresh, exciting relationship has been forged between Julian Blaxland of Blue Sky Bloodstock and Champion trainer Gai Waterhouse. Blaxland will join Waterhouse as part of her yearling and tried horse selection team, operating in the capacity of consulting Bloodstock Agent for the stable going forward. While continuing to act as an independent agent, Blaxland will scale down his auctioneering duties with Magic Millions over the next six months, but will remain involved in the extensive yearling selection process for the company's flagship January sale. Waterhouse feels that Blaxland has the talent and experience to really assist her owners in buying their next Champion. Likewise, Blaxland believes he can add some value to the established systems in place at Gai Waterhouse Racing. Blaxland will work with Waterhouse and her racing managers, Adrian Bott and Emma Pearce, on processes that have contributed to the high profile Tuloch Lodge stallion-making operation already being responsible for recent Gr1-winning stallions Sebring, Northern Meteor, Pierro, Vancouver and Wandjina.
