RSS Feeds Sunday, January 05, 2014
Darby Dan Farm has hired Carl McEntee to its expanding team as the new Director of Sales and Bloodstock at the Lexington-based Thoroughbred farm.
 
“Carl is a terrific horseman and welcome addition to the Darby Dan team,” said Darby Dan general manager Robert Hammond. “He will play a key role in strengthening our sales team and overall customer service, and we look forward to reaching new heights with his tremendous knowledge and experience.”
 
Originally from Kildare, Ire., McEntee is a fifth generation horseman who’s worked in the United States for the past decade. He managed both Idle Hour Farm and Paragon Farm in Kentucky before moving to the Mid-Atlantic where he was initially instrumental in the onset of Ghost Ridge Farms in Pennsylvania.
 
McEntee joined Northview Stallion Station in Maryland in 2011 as the Director of Bloodstock, and he was able to significantly expand the stallion roster with the addition of eight new stallions over the past two years. McEntee was also able to help expand Northview’s sales division, along with creating NV Bloodstock, an investment and pinhooking venture.
 
“While I truly enjoyed my time at Northview, I am very excited about this new opportunity to join the team at Darby Dan,” said McEntee. “With the farm’s storied history and incredibly bright future ahead, I look forward to assisting Darby Dan as it continues to grow within the national industry.”
