Owned by four Irish natives – Fergus Galvin, Tony Hegarty, Adrian Regan and John Wade – HVF and their sales agency started with a bang.  They introduced themselves at Fasig-Tipton’s 2005 July Yearling Sale, and from their first Keeneland September Yearling Sale draft, sold the late, MGSW and record breaking sire, SCAT DADDY.  During that inaugural year, Hunter Valley Farm was the 7th leading consignor of weanlings by gross in North America.  HVF’s success has gone from strength to strength since, establishing proven and consistent results in the sales ring and on the racetrack:
  • For 9 of the 11 sales seasons that HVF has been in business, the consignment has ranked in the Top Ten Leading Consignors of Weanlings.
    For four of those years, Hunter Valley ranks in the Top Five (2014, 2013, 2012, and 2008).
  • In 2014, HVF climbed into the Top Ten Leading Consignors Overall for the first time, ranked 3rd Leading Consignor of Weanlings, and ranked in the Top Ten Leading Consignors of Broodmares.
  • HVF has cheered on sales graduates in:
