"I've worked with Clark for the last seven years and he helps to add another dimension to my skills. Particularly, with pedigrees and mating analysis. Great guy, trustworthy!"
“Clark Shepherd is a superb pedigree analyst. He utilizes his comprehensive knowledge of bloodlines to select the appropriate breeding for a broodmare considering both sales potential and expected racing performance of the future foal. His expertise includes providing effective assistance at weanling and yearling sales. Couldn’t be more pleased with our relationship.”
"Clark brings integrity and independence to his recommendations. His engineering background causes him to make data based decisions rather than running with the latest market fad. Much of The Elkstone Group's breeding success has been attributable to Clark."
