Duncan Taylor, as president and CEO of Taylor Made Sales Agency, presides over the farm that bears his family name and has been at the heart of the bloodstock industry for more than four decades.
To many, the surname “Taylor” is synonymous with one of the leading U.S. sellers of bloodstock, but for those who attended the Pan-American Conference held in May in Washington, D.C., Duncan Taylor was simply the leading asker of questions.
It is clear that Taylor has always had a passion to learn about and understand different aspects of the business. Taylor Made provides services, but these are just some elements to a much bigger industry, and for the industry to grow, it must explore and embrace the different aspects that make the business what it is. This made the Pan-American Conference a “must-attend” event for Taylor, giving him the opportunity to question and learn from panelists and delegates from around the world.
Sitting down with Taylor at the conclusion of the conference the Sunday after the Preakness gave us the opportunity to get his thoughts on the industry.
