New Project Underway for Weatherbys

New Project Underway for Weatherbys

6th February 2015

Brian has been very busy lately working on a major new project for Weatherbys. When complete, the new Bloodstock Information System will streamline much of the complex processes involved in publishing catalogue pedigrees, results reporting and online services provided to Weatherbys clients.

Continuously in business since 1770, Weatherbys is famous for its accurate registration of British and Irish thoroughbred births throughout the centuries, with copies of the General Stud Book dating back hundreds of years on show, along with many other items of royal and racing memorabilia.

The project will take more than a year to complete from conception through to design and development, but will greatly enhance the quality and expand the range of services available to clients of Weatherbys bloodstock division.

Records broken at Tattersalls October Yearling Sales

Records broken at Tattersalls October Yearling Sales

9th October 2014

Tattersalls' new Repository system, designed for the prestigious 2014 October Book 1 sale by Brian and the team at Eclipse Veterinary Software, has received many plaudits. Uploading images to the Repository in advance is much easier now and viewing lots very straightforward for vets commissioned by clients considering purchases.

"We wanted to ensure that it wasn't a chore in future," said Eclipse Technical Director, Brian Whitt. "We know that burning CDs and trying to get them sorted out when animals arrive at Park Paddocks is not ideal, so we have designed the system to make uploading Dicom images or videos much less time-consuming."

October Book 1 broke the records again in 2014 with turnover up 13% on 2013 and more than 79,000 guineas changing hands during the three days of the sale. The highest price of 2.6m guineas was paid for a Galileo colt, and three lots topped the million mark on the final day.

Cotts Equine Hospital entertained Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II as she made a tour of the clinic during her visit to Pembrokeshire.

The Queen was shown round treatment rooms, operating theatre and diagnostic facilities by Richard Coomer, met the staff and some of the in-patients, and was presented with a lovely posy of flowers by Graham and Evie's youngest.
