The Kern Lillingston Association was formed in the early nineteen-nineties by Kern Thoroughbreds of Lexington, Kentucky, and Lillingston Bloodstock, based principally in Southern Ireland, to create an international bloodstock agency with a truly global reach.
The two principals – Lincoln Collins in America and Luke Lillingston in Europe – are both highly experienced and well respected in the world of racing and breeding and have together built up a worldwide network of contacts within the industry.
Lincoln Collins is president of Kern Thoroughbreds, a bloodstock agency with a proven record in the international bloodstock community. Joe Miller joined Kern Thoroughbreds in 2004. Joe specialises in international racing and Racing and Breeding Management for Kern Thoroughbreds. Joe and Lincoln have together purchased many Graded stake winners, including; Ave – Winner of the Flower Bowl (G1) who subsequently sold for $1,400,000 at Keeneland as well as Miss Keller – Winner of the E.P. Taylor (G1) and sold for over $1,000,000 at Tattersalls.
Notable successes for the Kern Lillingston Association include the Eclipse Award winner Golden Apples; Kentucky Group 1 winning two-year-old Square Eddie and Forte Dei Marmi, winner of the Gr.1 Northern Dancer Turf Stakes at Woodbine.
Situated in the renowned Maigue Valley, which forms part of the Golden Vale in County Limerick, the farm has been in the Lillingston family for three generations.
Mount Coote has produced a steady stream of top class performers. Since 1963, graduates have now won nearly 150 Stakes races between them worldwide and the majority of these have been foaled and raised on behalf of clients boarding mares at the stud. Mount Coote regularly features amongst the leading consignors at the prestigious Tattersalls Yearling Sales, and was responsible for the record-priced 4,700,000gns broodmare sold at Tattersalls December Sales in 2013.
