Darley Racing

Owner Profile

Darley Racing
Darley Racing is widely considered to be one of the world's best known and most successful thoroughbred horse racing operations. Launched by HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum - the ruler of Dubai and vice-president of the UAE - in 1981, today Darley Racing stands stallions in the UK, Ireland, France, the United States, Australia and Japan.

Darley Racing currently employs over 250 people at its headquarters at Dalham Hall Stud - near the famous Newmarket Racecourse - and its pre-training facility at Hamilton Hill (both in England), as well as an additional 600 people in the rest of its global operations. Darley Racing's UK operations alone span 4,000 acres and Darley Stud is the operation's breeding arm.
Sheikh Mohammed
In 1986 Darley Racing acquired Kildangan Stud in County Kildare, Ireland, which is now the home of some top stallions and in 2001 bought Jonabell Farm (founded in 1946) in Kentucky, USA. In 2002 Darley Racing purchased the 300 acre Kelvinside Stud in the Hunter Valley in Australia, and also stands stallions at its 1,100 acre stud farm in Seymour, Victoria.

Darley stand some of the best stallions in the world including Holy Bull, Bernardini, Street Sense, and Any Given Sunday.

Sheikh Mohammed's favorite horse of all time is reported to be Dubai Millennium, the most famous of Darley Racing's stallions to stand at Dalham Hall.
