Byron Rogers is the new Australasian representative for Fasig-Tipton. The Lexington-based Thoroughbred auction firm announced his appointment in a press release issued June 25.
“Byron has extensive knowledge of the Thoroughbred industry and the participants in Australia and New Zealand, as well as America. He will be a great asset in helping us develop new customers in that region, and improving our service to existing clients there,” said Fasig-Tipton president Boyd Browning. “The recent additions of Byron and Richard Brown, our European representative, significantly improve our international capabilities.”
Rogers is the managing partner of Pedigree Consultants, a company based in Lexington, and has previously worked for William Inglis & Son in Australia. He also has served as the director of Taylor Made Farm’s stallion division in Kentucky and as the bloodstock manager of Arrowfield Stud in Australia. His role with Pedigree Consultants will remain unchanged.
“I am delighted to be joining the team at Fasig-Tipton to assist them in developing their presence in Australia and New Zealand, a buying bench that proved vital to the success of the breeding stock sales in North America last year.” Rogers said.
