John Phillips’ Darby Dan Farm has promoted Robert Hammond to Vice Chairman of the historic Lexington-based Thoroughbred operation. Hammond had been serving as Darby Dan’s Farm Manager for the last five years.

“Robert is multi-talented and just fantastic to work with,” said Phillips. “Our goal is to go from great to greater, and that means utilizing a teammate’s attributes to the best benefit of the team. Since we can’t clone Robert, he is going to shift more to a strategic management role, stewarding clients and their business plans, as well as developing stallion investment strategies. We have a great group of managers in Sales, Yearlings, Broodmares, and Stallions; it has never been better or, honestly, more fun. Robert’s new role is the obvious next step for both of us, and I am excited about it.”

Added Hammond: “We have been on a roll for the last few years thanks to teamwork and the support of great clients. The future is bright and I am looking forward to playing my part.”
