For the past decade, Solis has traded as a bloodstock agent under the Solis / Litt Bloodstock banner, the agency he shares with Jason Litt.
"It's an honour to be offered this role," said Solis. "It brings together my passion of breeding and racing and I could not be more excited to join the team at Gainesway."
Gainesway owner Anthony Beck said of the appointment: "It's exciting for a person as accomplished as Alex Solis to join Gainesway Farm as director of bloodstock.
"Alex is a class act of a human being and his participation will be a great asset - both to Gainesway and to our potential partners - as we expand our stallion roster and racing ventures. I could not be ore enthused about the future."
Solis will continue to advise clients of Solis / Litt Bloodstock.
