Deuce Greathouse has officially joined the team at Four Star Sales, managing partner Kerry Cauthen announced April 3.
His duties will include client recruitment, with a focus on racing stock and broodmare prospects, as well as farm inspections and client services during public auctions. Greathouse will continue to operate his existing weanling, yearling, and mare pinhook partnership and management of Pike Place Racing, while maintaining his client relationships and business development role at Glencrest Farm.
John W. Greathouse III has been appointed general manager of the Greathouse family's Glencrest Farm.
"The two look forward to expanding their careers in the industry," said Cauthen.
A graduate of the A.B. Freeman School of Business at Tulane University, Deuce Greathouse has been with Four Star on an informal basis since its inception, showing yearlings at the sales while attending school. In subsequent years he worked with his father and extended family in overseeing the yearling preparation of all Glencrest Farm's personal and client holdings, and managing various pinhook partnerships that sold stock through Four Star Sales and in the 2-year-old market.
"Deuce has spent the last 10 years gaining a very well-rounded education in the Thoroughbred industry from both the selling and the buying end," said Cauthen. "Whether selecting alone or in conjunction with partners, his extensive experience in purchasing at public auction has produced champion Uncle Mo , multiple grade I winner Devil May Care, grade II winner and $1.25-million broodmare Nefertini, grade III winner Tepin, grade I-placed Big Blue Nation, undefeated Schivarelli, and 3-year-old Street Strategy.
"His deep family history and skill set will definitely be a strong addition in the continued growth of Four Star Sales. It is a natural fit for us all."
"I am extremely excited about the opportunity and look forward to being involved in the growth of Four Star Sales and Glencrest Farm," said Greathouse. "Both entities work hand-in-hand, and I believe that I will be able to generate new areas of business for both groups in the years to come."
