Wilson joins Sales and Nominations team
Friday, January 17, 2014

WinStar Farm announced Friday the addition of Kyle Wilson to the farm’s Sales and Nominations team.

“I’ve been impressed with Kyle’s professionalism, energy, and expertise, all of which will serve him well when working with breeders and our shareholders,” said WinStar President & CEO Elliott Walden. “He will be a fine representative of our stallions and overall operation, and we’re happy to have him aboard. He’s a great fit for our team.”

A University of Kentucky graduate, Wilson entered the Darley Flying Start program straight out of college in 2007. Following his graduation from the program in 2009, he went to work for Peter Bradley’s Bradley Thoroughbred Brokerage where he served as a bloodstock agent.  Wilson joined Three Chimneys Farm in 2010, and he’s worked there in stallion season sales for the last three and half years prior to coming to WinStar.

“I am extremely excited about this opportunity,” said Wilson. “WinStar is the gold standard of stallion operations, and it is very exciting to be working with this caliber of a stallion roster.”

Wilson joins Stallion Seasons Director Darren Fox and Sean Tugel in the Sales and Nominations department at WinStar.
