Boomer Bloodstock International has appointed Lynn Hancock to the position of Bloodstock Liaison.
Born and raised in Kentucky, Lynn’s deep love of all things thoroughbred is ingrained in her pedigree and dates back five generations. Having grown up on Stone Farm, Lynn has been fortunate enough to learn about all aspects of the horse industry from her father Arthur B Hancock III, founder of Stone Farm.
Since its inception in 1970, Stone Farm has established itself internationally as one of the leading thoroughbred operations in North America, producing six champions and three Kentucky Derby winners in Gato Del Sol, Sunday Silence and Fusaichi Pegasus. Lynn’s grandfather Arthur ‘Bull’ Hancock Jr. was one of the most influential people in thoroughbred history standing many champion stallions at his Claiborne Farm.
Lynn graduated in 2009 with a BA in Art History and went on to pursue a career in interior design. After five years working in Los Angeles and New York, it was her love of the horse industry that pulled her back to her home state of Kentucky in 2014. Since returning, Lynn has worked both the yearling and breeding stock sale consignments for Stone Farm.
A licensed equine and property insurance agent, she has spent the past two years with Stone Agency and has also worked with Magic Millions.
Boomer Bloodstock’s Craig Rounsefell met the Hancocks when living in Kentucky in 2008. “Mr. Hancock has been a bit of a mentor to me. He’s a legend throughout the world.”
Rounsefell purchased the first share in an Australian racehorse for Stone Farm when paying $110,000 for a Denman filly from Burnewang North Pastoral at the Gold Coast Magic Millions. She is a half-sister to G3 winner Generalife and will be prepared by Matt Cumani.
“It’s huge getting Mr Hancock to invest in Australia,” Rounsefell said. “He liked the idea of putting a toe in the water and seeing if he enjoys it down here.”
