About Jane

Jane’s occupation asRuby Jane sml 14 a pedigree analyst evolved from a love of horses, a fascination with pedigrees and a work background in the racing industry.

She first started planning matings professionally in 1987. The statistics arising from the first three years’ matings planned for a client with three stallions and seventy mares in New Zealand were well above the accepted norm for a sire (and also well above the subsequent averages for these stallions).

With these encouraging results Jane relocated to England to further her knowledge and worked there with a pedigree research bureau for two years where she had the opportunity to update and expand her ideas by meeting and working with established pedigree analysts.

After returning to Australia, Jane started Pedigree Dynamics, which became a full time operation about nineteen years ago.

As the success of the planned matings accumulated, she found that she was also being asked to source bloodstock which met with all the criteria important for success, including mare suitability to clients’ stallion holdings or vice versa.Grafton Plate A lifetime of hands-on experience with horses as a (briefly professional) rider, horse owner and breeder has given Jane a practised eye for a horse.

Several trips to South America and other racing countries resulted in the establishment of valuable contacts overseas, which has seen the bloodstock acquisition area of the business develop significantly over the past few seasons.

More recently, Jane has become involved with racehorse syndication company OZ Racing in selecting, placing and managing horses in Sydney.

Jane is a keen racegoer and, as manager and/or owner, is a regular in both the winners’ and the losers’ rooms at many a race meeting throughout the year.
