Barry Bowditch has been named Keeneland’s Australasian representative, succeeding his former boss Vin Cox, whose position he filled as managing director at Magic Millions after this year’s Gold Coast Yearling Sale. Cox has taken up the position of managing director for Godolphin Australia.
“Keeneland is excited to have Barry join our sales team, which works year-round to recruit buyers from all corners of the world to come here to acquire racing and breeding stock,” Keeneland Vice President of Racing and Sales Bob Elliston said. “Our sales staff travels throughout the year and works closely with all of our international representatives. Barry joins Ed Prosser in Europe, Kate Hunter in Japan and David Snodgrass in China in Keeneland’s efforts to produce the industry’s deepest buying bench.”
“Vin has done a wonderful job in his time at Keeneland and to be offered to step into his shoes as Australasian Representative is an honor,” Bowditch said. “I look forward to continuing the relationships with our clients on this side of world, as well as fostering new business for Keeneland.”
