John Foote Joins FBAA

Media Release - Thursday July 15

The Federation of Bloodstock Agents Australia is pleased to announce that John Foote will be rejoining the membership ranks having been a founding member in 1988.

John Foote commented; “I commend the Board of the FBAA for restoring and improving the Membership Criteria together with the Code of Ethics and giving the Federation a more clear direction for the future.”


This brings the number of new members to the FBAA this year to six, making a total of 28 following the implementation of the new Membership Criteria, Code of Ethics and Constitution late last year.

FBAA President, Craig Rounsefell commented, “We are continuing to work on ways to develop the FBAA’s standing within the thoroughbred industry as we set the highest standard for bloodstock agents in the world. It is important to us that an agent who has the respect and standing within the industry that John Foote does, wants to be part of the Federation.”
