New Face at Cornerstone

Sam Pritchard Gordon is the new face at Sam Hayes Cornerstone Stud; he comes with a wealth of experience, and personality to match.

The two Sams have been good friends for a long period of time, both with the same common interest, horses.

Both met up again in January when Sam Hayes offered his friend a position at the stud, renewing their friendship, and more importantly, sharing the work load, creating a new position, the relationship, which will advantage both parties, and the welfare of Cornerstone Stud, the largest thoroughbred stud farm in South Australia.  

Sam Pritchard Gordon will take care of the marketing and sales, he will liaison with clients to ensure both parties have a good relationship, and the mating of their mares to the suitable stallions, making sure the stud’s clients are receiving the best price for their horses, and the correct information they are entitled to.

Marketing is an important issue, clients in some cases need advice, they may be first time owners, first impressions are very important, a fresh smile and a firm shake of the hand give’s one confidence

Sam has those qualities, he was born and raised in Newmarket UK, he has been involved with some of the major studs, and leading stables, before coming to Australia seventeen years ago.

He was top man with Lee Freedman before Freedman left for Singapore, there was also a stint with Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott, and he also trained for a time at Mornington.

Sam is settling back into the bloodstock industry at a time when then the industry is booming, it is as solid as The Rock of Gibraltar when yearlings are being purchased for millions of dollars.
