MEET THE TEAM
Keith has served a thorough apprenticeship, working for some of the biggest names in the business. Having spent time in England working first for Shadwell and then at Cheveley Park. Keith also spent two years at Coolmore where he had the opportunity to travel to Australia with stallions. He has also worked at Brookdale Farm in Kentucky. In 2005 Keith took the decision to set up his own Stud Farm in England with his wife Eileen. Their Business is now growing every year.
Spending many weekends as a young girl at race meetings in Ireland Eileen was struck by the racing bug at an early age. Her passion for horses continued throughout her life and she eventually turned this into a successful career with her husband when they set up Keith Harte Bloodstock Ltd. Breeding and selling thoroughbreds filled their days but the young people coming into the industry was something Eileen and her team concentrated on. Taking on apprentices and work placements and working as a mentor with Women In Racing became Eileen’s new passion and focus.
