About Darley

Darley is HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum’s global thoroughbred stallion operation which currently stands stallions in six countries around the world. Darley’s headquarters is Dalham Hall Stud in Newmarket – the renowned home of racing.

The history of the thoroughbred involves wars, long sea journeys and a lucky find in Paris – and it all started back in the 17th century with just three remarkable stallions.

A trio of dominant foundation sires heralded the dawn of the English Thoroughbred, and all racehorses now descend from these founding fathers.

The oldest of the three is the Byerley Turk. Seized by a soldier called Captain Byerley during the battle of Buda in 1686, the Turkish stallion spent the next decade serving as the Captain’s warhorse. The Byerley Turk then moved with his newly-married owner to Yorkshire, England, where this legendary horse’s dynasty was founded.
