Shawn_DerbyFor over a decade, Shawn Collins has helped bring Thoroughbred buyers and sellers together, delivering equine dreams at the highest level.

Shawn’s bloodstock agent career began in 2000, when a chance encounter provided him an opportunity to work for Taylor Made, the world’s leading Thoroughbred consignor and sales agency. Shawn’s strong work ethic and warm personality made a positive impression on the owners of Taylor Made and their clientele. He was quickly promoted to head of RNA sales, one of the most challenging positions in the industry, as it requires selling horses that did not meet their reserve pricing in the auction ring.

Through the countless hours and intense training that working for Taylor Made provided, Shawn was able to launch his own bloodstock agency, Mare.Solutions, in 2007. Shawn’s genuine love of horses combined with his superior ability to evaluate the physical stature and bloodlines of the Thoroughbreds has proven the key to his success.

“I’ve found the key to success really boils down to trust, honesty, integrity, and bringing people together,” Shawn says. “I am able to serve as the bridge which allows people to reach common ground and realize their dreams.”

Now it’s your turn. If the idea of buying, selling, breeding, and racing Thoroughbreds excites you, call Shawn to set up a consultation at 859-492-8222 or visit his website at Mare.Solutions. Shawn has the vast knowledge and the expertise necessary to turn your dreams into a reality.
