Perry Daughter a Chip Off the Old Block
Bruce Perry Bloodstock is becoming a family affair with Perry's daughter Becca joining the Wairarapa-based bloodstock agency, reports NZ Racing Desk. Since leaving school Becca has completed a Bachelor's degree and spent time living and travelling around the United States. She joined the travel industry in Wellington after returning from overeas, but said it was always her plan to become more involved in her family's business and, with the impact COVID-19 is having on the travel sector, she thought it was an ideal time to make the move. Her father is adamant the future is bright in the thoroughbred industry and is excited his daughter is joining the business he established more than 30 years ago. "Bringing Becca on board will definitely be a huge advantage for the company," Bruce Perry said. "With so much uncertainty surrounding auctions you would expect more breeders to retain quality yearlings and take them through to the racing stage to target the strong tried horse market. This is certainly one area that we will look to develop and involve her in." As well as joining Bruce Perry Bloodstock, Perry's daughter will also assist Trelawney Stud principal Cherry Taylor in her insurance business, CN Taylor Consulting.
