Robert Hammond has been hired as the General Manager of John Phillips' Darby Dan Farm and will assume duties immediately, the Lexington-based farm announced on Monday.

“Robert brings a wealth of experience in many areas of the industry, and we're excited to have him on board at Darby Dan,” said Phillips.

Hammond was formerly the Stallion Manager and Director of Bloodstock at WinStar Farm, where he served for five years. A London, England native, he moved to the States in 1997 and has over 20 years of experience in the Thoroughbred industry. Hammond has also been involved as a trainer, farm owner, consignor and bloodstock agent on both sides of the pond.

“While I'm extremely thankful to WinStar for the experiences and time spent there, I'm excited about this great opportunity to take on new challenges with a farm with such great history and tradition as Darby Dan,” said Hammond. “Mr. Phillips and his team do a terrific job, and I'm looking forward to contributing to that success moving into the future.”

WinStar President & CEO Elliott Walden added: “Robert has been a key part of the WinStar team and we will miss him. But it is important for us to see people move on to new opportunities, and we wish him the best.”
