We have specialized in the private market over the last eight years, notably in 2020 where our clients enjoyed over 60 Stakes Wins including 14 Grade 1 wins, 4 Breeders’ Cup Wins and 4 Eclipse Award Champions.
The private market allows for more flexibility when structuring both purchases and sales and at BSW/Crow, we feel we do this better than anyone in the industry.
Whether buying or selling, we can put you in the position to best achieve your goals. We believe that our excellent relationships in the industry give us an advantage in matching buyers and sellers.
2021 saw three more private purchases become G1 winners, with Drain the Clock capturing the Woody Stephens (G1) on the Belmont Stakes undercard, Rockemperor (IRE) taking the Joe Hirsch Turf Classic (G1) and Going Global (IRE) showing herself as one of the best three-year-old turf fillies in the country after winning the Del Mar Oaks (G1).
