The Minty/Bromley partnership is the ultimate in high class bloodstock services. Any advice, in particular, that concerning the buying and selling of horses, is always of the highest quality and done with the utmost integrity.
I have known and worked with David, Anthony and Tessie for many years. They are a hard-working and astute team who leave no stone unturned and they have found lots of winners for me.
Anthony and Minty have been an integral part of my buying team since I started training and provide an excellent all-round service for both myself and my owners.
Anthony has sourced many of our stars at Ditcheat and I can highly recommend the Highflyer Team.
