Bill oppenheimBILL OPPENHEIM was born August 7, 1949, in Kansas City, Missouri. He grew up in Kansas, and graduated with B.A. (1971) and M.A. (1974) degrees in English from his hometown Wichita State University. He has worked professionally in the thoroughbred business ever since, as a journalist, market analyst, and consultant. He worked in New Zealand as a journalist for the INL Print stable of publications in 1974-75, and in Louisiana, as the editor of the bimonthly Louisiana Horse magazine from 1976-79. In 1978 he started the twice-monthly newsletter Racing Update with his then-employer, the late Jack Lohman, and he moved to Lexington, Kentucky, as the publication’s Editor and Publisher in 1979. During the first Golden Age of Thoroughbred Breeding (1978-1985), Racing Update, which took no advertising (imagine that today!) and existed entirely by subscription, and Oppenheim became known as the independent analysts used by industry professionals. During that time they originated the APEX method of stallion ratings; took over and developed Catalog Update, the forerunner of today’s sales supplement books; and originated Barn Order lists, which are now included in most sales catalogs, as well as many other analytical innovations.

In 1993 Bill moved to Scotland with his wife, Lou, a British native, and he sold Racing Update in 1995. Since 2000 he has been a weekly columnist (usually on Wednesdays) for the industry’s leading internet daily, Thoroughbred Daily News, for which he has now written over 500 columns and counting. Bill has also worked as a consultant to horse operations for over thirty years. His private matings consultancy clients have bred 13 Classic winners since 1992, including two winners of the G1 Epsom Derby and two winners of the G1 Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe, and he has also done consulting work for sales companies, industry and trade organizations, and many other industry professionals. In 2008 he was elected as a Member of the Breeders’ Cup ‘big board’, and he served on the Breeders’ Cup Racing and Nominations subcommittee which helped originate its International Stallion Nominations program in 2011.
