My Profile


GORDIAN TROELLER has been at the forefront of agents specialising in the purchase of Horses in Training for export for the last ten+ years. One of his main markets is the USA to which he has sold numerous Group and Graded Stakes winners including Gr 1 winners GITANO HERNANDO: THE DEPUTY, MONZANTE: SINGHALESE, TICKER TAPE, BECRUX and CRIMSON PALACE amongst others. He has also sold horses to Hong Kong and had Gr 1 success in Dubai with Ipi Tombe

After an early childhood spent show jumping in Switzerland, horses took the back seat after I had moved to the UK. I still rode, but it became very much a social pastime, mainly due to being located in London and then going to university in Manchester.

I spent quite few years in the music and film businesses during which time my interest in racing was born. I started off by owning a few horses in training in Lambourn and learnt a lot from my trainers at the time, Charlie Nelson, Kim Brassey and Rod Simpson.

One thing led to another and I started buying my own horses, then formed a few syndicates and then started buying yearlings for John Hills amongst others. I also started successfully buying two year olds for the Italian market.

After a few visits to the West Coast of the USA I began to specialise in buying Horses in Training and this quickly became the main area in which I operated. It still is, though the geographical area for which I now buy has expanded to include Hong Kong, Australia and some European countries. The US however remains the main source of clients and the main destination for my purchases.

I buy at auction and privately and over the years have bought close on 100 Stakes winning/placed horses

I make a point of carefully noting each individual client's requirements and then researching and selecting a small but select group of horses which I believe will suit that client's needs. My first task is an in depth analysis of a horse's form ( including careful examination of collateral form and sectional timings ) After this process has resulted in a short list I will further fine-tune my selections by studying video replays and historical results to determine which horses are best suited for the client and the climate/geographical area concerned.

Whatever the budget Gordian will select the best horse at the best possible price.

I hope that you will give me the opportunity of assisting you in the purchase of racehorses which have the ability to become major winners for you.
