Frank Taylor

Frank Taylor is one of the team that makes up Taylor Made Sales Agency that has ranked as the Keeneland September Sale's leading consignor by gross 16 times since 1988. His father was the legendary horseman Joe Taylor who developed John Gaines' Gainesway Farm into a leading stallion farm during his 40-year management. The Taylor brothers were bred and raised in the horse business. Their grandfather lived on a farm in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky, where he raised Standardbred race horses, and they spent their summers helping him prepare yearlings for the yearly fall sales in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Getting to miss school while they helped out at these fall sales and getting to ride up in the horse vans were major highlights of their young lives. Joe Taylor, their father, grew up on this same farm, born and bred, as were the brothers, with a deep and abiding love for animals and their care. Taylor Made Sales Agency quickly developed a reputation for quality care, and in 1978 expanded its operations with its first Keeneland consignment.
