Pinhooking, an age-old Kentucky tradition originating from the tobacco trade, involves purchasing young plants from farmers at a low price and selling them later for a higher profit, often marking them with a pinned note at market. In the context of thoroughbred auctions, pinhooking extends to acquiring young horses, overseeing their development, and ultimately reselling them. McMahon & Hill employs a strategic approach, offering various partnership or private options to optimize clients' investments.
