Jay Goodwin Joins Walmac Farm’s Stallion Sales Department

Jay Goodwin, formerly of Eaton Sales and previously a partner in Select Sales Agency, has been hired by Gary Broad's Walmac Farm and will join the operation's stallion sales department, it was announced today.

“Moving into stallions wasn't something I was even thinking about, but when I spoke with Gary and heard his excitement and the plans that he has for the future of Walmac, it was something that I definitely wanted to be a part of,” said Goodwin. “Although I am thoroughly excited about this exciting new opportunity, I will miss my role with Eaton Sales. I am thankful to Reiley (McDonald) for everything he taught me while I worked with him.”

Goodwin, who moved to Lexington, Ky., in 2005, is no stranger to high-quality bloodstock. Having worked as an account manager for Eaton Sales since 2020 and as a longtime partner with Select Sales, Goodwin is also a breeder and owns Goodwin Farm in Bourbon County where he manages his own mares and those of clients.

Walmac is home to stallions Core Beliefs and Pinehurst. Core Beliefs, a son of Quality Road, won the Grade 3 Ohio Derby and the G2 New Orleans Handicap and banked nearly $1 million during his racing career. His first foals arrive this year and he stands the 2023 breeding season for $7,500 S&N.

Pinehurst, runaway winner of the 2021 G1 Del Mar Futurity at two and impressive winner of the G3 Saudi Derby at three, is a son of Twirling Candy, and he stands his initial season at stud this year for $7,500 S&N.
