Jenny Barnett is the new recruiting/client relations coordinator for Select Sales, the Central Kentucky-based sales agency announced Aug. 2.
Originally from County Down, Northern Ireland, Barnett was a graduate of the prestigious Darley Flying Start program in 2008. She most recently worked in WinStar Farm's bloodstock division. She also has worked with the Star Thoroughbreds syndicate in Australia and Shadwell's pre-training operation in Dubai. In England, Barnett worked for Cheveley Park Stud, the English National Stud, and the Racing Post.
“We are very excited to add Jenny to our growing company,” said Select Sales general manager Andrew Cary. "She is one of the brightest young people in the industry and we can't wait for her to show what she can do. She will be helping us bring in new clientele as well as helping manage our existing base of customers. Our business has grown tremendously since we began operations in 2009 and bringing Jenny on board is the next important step in our development.”
Select Sales has consignments at Fasig-Tipton’s Saratoga select yearling sale Aug. 6-7 and the New York-bred yearling auction Aug. 11-12.
“I really appreciate the fantastic opportunity afforded to me by WinStar Farm,” Barnett said, “and now I look forward to working with the top breeders, owners, and trainers in North America through one of the most exciting Thoroughbred consignors in the business, Select Sales."
