30 Years of Experience in the
Horse Racing Industry

Brinkerhoff Bloodstock Services was created to assist a select group of clients with all of their needs in acquiring horses and maintaining an equine portfolio that offers value both now and in years to come. Whether it's recommending purchases at public auction or privately, or re-examining current holdings, BBS offers the proven knowledge, reliability and honesty you'll be hard-pressed to find elsewhere.

Bruce Brinkerhoff has years of experience in analyzing pedigrees and performing conformation evaluations, and also has his finger on the pulse of the Standardbred and Thoroughbred markets.

That knowledge makes him especially well-suited to make recommendations on what yearlings, broodmares or racehorses will suit a particular client's stable, regardless of budget or location. Bruce can also make culling recommendations and what market is best suited for bringing the most money for those horses.

With a lifelong interest in livestock and horse racing, and with a successful 30-year career in the horse racing industry, Bruce comes well-equipped to serve clients in all these ways.

Along with his private business, Bruce is a highly-regarded research associate at the U.S. Trotting Association in Columbus, Ohio. He came to USTA from Lexington Selected Sales Company where he wrote pedigrees and was on the yearling inspection team since 1998. Prior to that he worked as division manager and/or breeding manager at several Standardbred and Thoroughbred farms in the East, Midwest and Kentucky.

Bruce’s wife, Melissa, brings a strong equine background along with her experience in professional customer service and project management to assist the clients of Brinkerhoff Bloodstock Services.
