With the recent addition of G1-winning milers All American and Tale of Ekati to its 2011 stallion roster, Darby Dan Farm has appointed industry veteran Suzie Picou-Oldham to the position of Bloodstock Associate & Nomination Sales.
“Suzie brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the team, and we are delighted to welcome her aboard,” said Darby Dan owner John Phillips. “She has worked in similar positions, most recently at Stonewall where she worked with such stallions as Medaglia d’Oro. She also worked at Spendthrift and Dixiana, which launched the stud career of Mr. Greeley. Suzie is well-versed in so many facets of this industry, and will be a great addition to our staff.”
A former jockey, long-time advertising executive, and renowned photographer, Picou-Oldham has handled stallion seasons and shares for the past 15 years.
“I am honored to join the Darby Dan team and especially happy to work with Ryan Norton their Stallion Director. Darby Dan is a beautiful farm whose legacy is great to be a part of,” Picou-Oldham said. “The current roster has some very exciting young stallions, including Grade 1 winners Tale of Ekati and All American, who I'll get to work with in their first seasons.”
