McEntee named director of sales and bloodstock at Darby Dan


Darby Dan Farm in Lexington, Ky., has hired Carl McEntee to be the farm’s director of sales and bloodstock.

A native of Kildare, Ireland, McEntee is a fifth generation horseman. He managed Idle Hour Farm and Paragon Farm in Kentucky before moving to the Mid-Atlantic region, where he helped develop Ghost Ridge Farm in Pennsylvania. He will leave his position as director at Northview Stallion Station in Maryland and Pennsylvania to join Darby Dan.

“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.”

McEntee joined Northview Stallion Station in 2011, and helped to bring eight new stallions to the farms over the past two years. He also helped Northview expand its 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,” McEntee said. “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.”
